Produced by Jacques Brown
Edward Owen Pogson , otherwise ' Poggy ', for nine years with Jack Hylton , for six years with Jack Jackson , and now playing sax, clarinet, oboe, and cor anglais with Jack Payne , has a rare collection of unusual instruments. Among those he will play in this programme are a contra bass clarinet, which he claims to be the only one in the country ; a bass oboe constructed for the ' Dance Rhapsody ' by Delius ; an E flat clarinet, used in military bands but seldom for dance music ; and finally, if it can be called an instrument, an ordinary drinking-straw with six holes burnt in it by a cigarette, and with one end squeezed together to form a reed.
