Rogues (not to be confused with scoundrels) appeal to us all. Something of their adventurous lives has been handed down to us in story and legend, with all the glamour added, and probably often enough little of the truth. So we have our Robin Hoods , our Claude Duvals , our Vagabond Kings, all glorious heroes, and stage and screen actors compete to play them on both sides of the Atlantic.
Stage, screen, and radio have a long ' rogues' roll of honour' of their own, and many of them, happily, have been singing rogues. Some of the rousing and roguish songs they have sung will be heard again in this programme.

Tommy Kinsman was born in Liver-pool. At the age of thirteen he was working in a cinema as a page-boy, and was then promoted to cinema operator. Two thousand feet of film were burnt in an accident, so he decided to join the Mercantile Marine. During the last war he sailed regularly between England and America, and it was over there that he became interested in the new American jazz. In 1927 he formed his own dance band and he gave his first broadcast in 1935.
