: ' FOR PETE'S SAKE !'

A Variety of songs and smiles with Pete Davis (A man of ' characters '), and Peter Pounds (Entertainer at the piano)
Presented by Tom Dawson
Two Peters come to the microphone in this short afternoon Variety programme. Peter Pounds is the holder of a name fafmiliar to theatregoers of the last war, being a son of Courtice Pounds, one of the company of that record-breaker, Chu Chin Chow. He will be heard in songs at the piano which he sings in the Style of ' Hutch '. Sharing the bill is Pete Davis , giving impersonations and characterisations. He is perhaps better known in Scotland as a producer than as a performer, but he occasionally comes into the limelight for special shows.

: FREDERICK RANALOW

will play records of some of his favourite ballads
Few singers of today have had a more varied career' than has Frederick Ranalow. He made his first appearance on the stage in 1898 as Father O'Flynn in Shamus O'Brien ; since when he has sung in grand opera, in rôles as diverse as Hans Sachs in Wagner's Master-singers and Captain Macheath in The Beggar's Opera. As a concert singer he toured Australia and New Zealand with Melba. He also appeared in the play Autumn Crocus. His choice of ballads this evening should prove of great interest to lovers of good songs.

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.
