Felton Rapley was a chorister at Winchester Cathedral and received his musical training from Dr. Prendergast, its famous organist, to whom he was pupil assistant for three years. During that period, at the age of thirteen, he was appointed organist at Hursley Parish Church (John Keble's parish church) in Hampshire.
When he was seventeen he entered the cinema industry. He has held positions as organist at the Poole Regent, the Maidenhead Plaza, and the Hanley Regent, from which he gave a series of broadcasts nine years ago. In December, 1935, he was appointed to the Birmingham Gaumont Palace.

Fifty years ago opera-goers in Rome gteeted with enthusiastic applause the first performance of a new opera by an obscure young composer. It was the one-act opera Cavalleria Rusticana. Its composer. Mascagni, awoke next morning to find himself famous. Its haunting melodies have fascinated audiences all over the world and today it remains one of the mainstays of all repertory companies.

The popular pianist, Charlie Kunz , had his own band at the Chez Henri Club for three or four years before going to Casani's and becoming famous. In the days when listeners filled the columns of ' What the Other Listener Thinks ' with passionate letters naming their favourite dance band, Charlie's name appeared as often as any.
When Casani's closed down a few years ago, he branched out on his own as a single act on the halls. In this evening's programme he will have rhythm accompaniment-string, bass, guitar, and drums-as he does when recording.
