A reminiscent programme of popular songs
Some of your old favourites recalled by Jack Davies Jr. , who has devised and arranged the programme and Ben Frankel , who has scored the music and will conduct his orchestra
The tunes you will hear tonight are:
Because I Love You ; Who ; I want to be Happy ; Poor Butterfly ; Rose Marie ; I'm sitting on Top of the World, and I'll see You in my
The singer is Dorothy Carless
'The song is ended, but the tune goes on ' ... and so does this popular fortnightly series, of which the fourth broadcast is to be given this evening. The programmes are devised, and the songs chosen, by Jack Davies , junior. Ben Frankel is in charge of the orchestral side and conducts the orchestra of twelve instrumentalists.
They met during the filming of Radio Parade in 1935. Davies collaborated on the screen play and Frankel did the music. Davies has done scenario writing for nearly twenty films, among them Heart's Desire, in which Richard Tauber starred and also composed the music, and Dance Band, starring Buddy Rogers.
Frankel's orchestra, which was formed for these programmes, is very unusual for a dance band: oboes, harp, flute, two French horns, trumpet, trombone, guitar, double bass, drums, but no- saxophone. The vocalist is Dorothy Carless , who has sung in this feature during the entire series.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
