Arthur Dulay Quintet
The Arthur Dulay Quintet, one of the most popular light-music combinations in broadcasting, consists of two violins, viola, and cello, with Arthur Dulay himself at the piano.
Dulay began his career as a pianist and also lectured on musical appreciation for the London County
Council for two and a half years. Soon he became a cinema pianist, when he gained the distinction of being the first musical director in this country to compose a complete score for a silent picture. He formed his Quintet in 1935 and has been broadcasting regularly with it ever since.

From 1931 to 1936 Sydney Kyte entertained listeners and fashionable London with his dance orchestra at the Piccadilly Hotel. He then toured the country, only returning to London to play at the Carlton for the Coronation festivities. His tour was finally cut short by the outbreak of war. At a day's notice, he responded to an urgent message from the Mayfair, and helped to relieve the gloom of London in the days when the theatres and cinemas were shut.
His signature tune, ' Tune in, keep listening', was sent to him as an ordinary number by the composer and librettist, who signed their names Harry Pepper and John Watt. It was too good to miss.

Stanley Tudor , twenty-nine years of age, was born in Stoke-on-Trent, played the church organ before he was nine, won many prizes for piano-playing and began his cinema career fourteen years ago in the days of silent films, as pianist at the Capitol, Hanley. When he was sixteen he joined Gaumont-British, being appointed organist at the Hippodrome, Stoke.
His signature tune, ' Singing in the Rain ', is dedicated to the three weeks' downpour which greeted his arrival in Manchester for the opening of the Gaumont Theatre in October, 1935.
