Pupil of Tobias Matthay. Harold Craxton , and Benjamin Dale , Fred Hartley was for some time accompanist at the Royal Academy of Music.
Thereafter he was pianist at a big West-End club, musical director of a Stockholm theatre, and teacher of music at Dundee. From Dundee he gave his first broadcasts, though his radio fame dates from 1931, when he formed his Novelty Quintet.

Production by Maurice Brown
Maurice Brown continues his search for music of the taproom, and this evening takes you to Wensleydale, where, at the King's Arms, Redmire, you will overhear a typical Saturday evening in the 'snug'.
Here are farmers, farm labourers, shepherds, the village blacksmith, and the one-armed keeper from Bolton Castle, which stands on the hillside above the pub. Under the vigorous conductorship of Joe Alderson, the landlord, this congenial company loves to spend an evening in uproarious song. Few of them have ever been trained in singing, but you will probably all agree that their rendering of typical North Country songs rivals any professional choir in enthusiasm.
A rhythmic programme in the modem manner, featuring Eddie Carroll and his Orchestra with Gwen Jones and Alan Kane
