Mantovani, who is English in spite of his Italian name, has been broadcasting for many years now. At eighteen years of age he was leader of the Salon Orchestra at the Metropole Hotel, London, and broadcast from there for six years. He left the Metropole to form his own band at the Monseigneur Restaurant, Piccadilly, and it was thus that his Tipica Orchestra came into being. He so called it because whatever the nationality of the music played, it always sounded typical of the country of hs origin.

Un programme Francais, pour les Francais, par des Francais
You are invited to join in the fun, and incidentally learn to play the mouth-organ, at Harmonica College with Ronald Chesney as the Master, and Roy Rich as the (unwilling) pupil
Here is another mouth-organ lesson on the radio - Ronald Chesney the teacher and Roy Rich the pupil. The mouth-organ played is one of the cheapest kind, such as anyone and everyone may buy and practice on. It is an instrument especially popular with soldiers because it can slip into their pack so easily. Soldiers by the thousand are listening to these broadcasts and learning how to play it.
