Swing Into Summer


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.

Judging by the line-up of artists who will be helping to put the Swing into Summer each day this week, there promises to be something for everyone-touching it light with pop, ballads, folk music, and jazz. Nothing 'way-out' and music that's essentially easy to listen to will be provided by such contrasting stars as The Rockin' Berries, The King Brothers, Dave Berry, Kenny Lynch, Kenny Ball's Jazzmen, and other Swing into Summer artists.
This week's compere is Simon Dee, formerly a programme director and disc-jockey with Radio Caroline. His style is friendly and relaxed to suit the leisurely mood. Now, strictly land-Iubbing, and for the first time introducing 'live' artists as well as 'a spinful of discs,' he invites you to enjoy those swinging summer sounds each day in the Light.
Simon Dee introduces The Rockin' Berries, The King Brothers, Dave Berry and the Cruisers, Kenny Ball's Jazzmen, Kenny Lynch, Jackie Lee, The Karl Denver Trio, Russ Sainty and The Nu Notes, Alan Haven with Tony Crombie, The Fortunes, The Judd Proctor Quartet, Van Doren, The Tommy Sanderson Sound and a spinful of discs.


Presenter: Simon Dee
Producer: Derek Mills

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
