: TWO PIANOS

@ played by Ivor Moreton and Dave Kaye
Ivor Moreton and Dave Kaye are well known to listeners for their broadcasts in Variety and Music-Hall. They made their debut on the air in 1934 and their partnership came about in a romantic way.
Dave Kaye worked for three years in a timber merchant's office and was thrown out of work by a slump. He got a job as accompanist to a girl who sang songs in a store. Later he formed his "own dance band, and in time became pianist to Jerry Hoey , Syd Lipton , and Jack Harris. By chance he met Ivor Moreton , who had been wasting his time in a stockbroker's office, and they joined up.

Parry Jones was born at Blaina, Monmouthshire, the son of a well-known Welsh amateur tenor. He studied under Albert Visetti at the Royal College of Music, and at Milan. He went to America in 1913 and sang for two. years at the Metropolitan Opera House. He also made several successful concert tours.
Wrecked at Sea
He returned to England in May, 1915, on the last voyage of the Lusitania. When -the liner went down he was in the water for six and a half hours before being rescued by a trawler. As a result of this experience Parry Jones had a nervous breakdown for two years.
On regaining his health he joined the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company for one tour, and then the Carl Rosa Opera Company for four seasons.
Parry Jones is one of the most versatile of British singers, for not only is he successful in opera, oratorio, and lighter types of song, but he is a fine interpreter of German lieder and French song. Furthermore, he has devoted a great deal of time to the songs of British composers, particularly those of Peter Warlock , a representative programme of which he will sing this afternoon.
Listeners are referred to page 12, where they will find an interesting summing up of Peter Warlock as song composer by Constant Lambert.

: The Week's Good Cause

An appeal on behalf of THE YOUTH HOSTELS ASSOCIATION by JOHN HILTON
(from Geneva)
The Youth Hostels Association, which opened its first hostel in 1931, provides hostel accommodation for ' young people of any age who wish to travel in the countryside of England and Wales.
In the short space of seven years well over 70,000 members have been enrolled and over two million over-nights ' have been provided, yet at some of the hostels at holiday time a thousand members may have to be turned away. This year, with ' holidays with pay ' turning the minds of manual workers towards health-giving country air and exercise, the demand for inexpensive accommodation such as the hostels provide is likely to be greater than ever. Money is needed for new hostels to meet this demand. The movement is international. A membership card issued by any Youth Hostel Association is an open sesame to the 4,000 Youth Hostels of every country throughout the world.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed].

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.
