Louis Levy and The Augmented BBC Variety Orchestra in 'YOU SHALL HAVE MUSIC'


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
with Eve Becke Brian Lawrance The Georgettes
Orchestral arrangements by Peter Yorke
Guest Artist, Harry Champion
There ought to be a prize for any listener who is able to keep pace with Harry Champion when, as Louis Levy's guest in this 'You Shall Have Music' programme, he sings two of his most famous songs - 'Any Old Iron' and 'Boiled Beef and Carrots'. It has been a breathless business for the forty odd years that this veteran has been singing them all over the country. And today, despite his seventy-three years, Harry Champion still contrives to put it over with a speed that makes him a sort of Eyston of Song. His broadcast follows the recent successful appearance in this fortnightly series of Vivian Ellis, the composer.
