Introduced by Harry S. Pepper from the side of the stage at Hastings
Listeners heard in the spring three studio broadcasts from the Fol-de-Rols before they went off to join their different companies, which are appearing this year at Sandown, Llandudno, and Hastings. Tonight listeners are to hear the three companies behind their own footlights.
An unusual feature will be a burlesque in which different characters will be played by artists in the different towns, and listeners will thus hear three shows - many miles apart - broadcast simultaneously. Fifty artists will take part.
The FoI-de-Rols, or Follies of Royle (George Royle is joint proprietor with Greatrex Newman) have been entertaining for 27 years, and have almost settlers' rights in several towns in Britain.
At Hastings, for instance, where they have entertained regularly for twelve years, the company is as well known as the name Fol-de-Rols is well known on the air. They have been broadcasting since 1934.
