: JOE LOSS

and his Band, with Pat MacCormack , Bette Roberts , Don Rivers , Harry Kaye , Maureen, and the Loss Chords
Strictly adhering to the principle that dance music, even for broadcasting, should be played in strict dance tempo, Toe Loss has got together, and run for many years, one of the most successful dance combinations in the country. From 1935 to 1940 he played at the Astoria Dance Salon, London, which he left over eighteen months ago to take his band on tour.
During this time he has travelled all over the country, playing not only in theatres and music-halls, but also for dancing in many of the large halls that are now enjoying their greatest boom since the middle nineteen-twenties.
Loss was actually destined for a career in the world of serious music. At the age of 13 he had won a scholarship to Trinity College and studied there for the next three years. Then suddenly he rebelled, and in doing so became the youngest dance-band leader in the country, and the founder of an orchestra that is u popular today as it was eight years ago.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
