Henry Croudson comes to the microphone today with another of his popular recitals. He is a Leeds man, and held two cinema organ appointments in that city before leaving it over two years ago. Like so many of his contemporaries, he started his musical career as a church organist, learning to play at St. Chad s, Leeds, and afterwards becoming organist at the oldest church in the city, St. John's. He continued to hold the latter appointment after he had started cinema work, relinquishing it some four years ago.
Not only an organist, Henry Croudson is also a pianist of some note. Some years ago, for a wager, he started an accordion band of unemployed men, which proved a great success in Yorkshire.

Under the direction of Sydney Phasey
Sydney Phasey, for long known as the Henry Hall of the North, was born at Chatham, where as a youngster he was a choirboy. He had a musical background, his uncle being one of the world's champion trombone players and his grandfather both a member of Queen Victoria's private band and. a professor at the Kneller Hall Academy.
At an early age Phasey accompanied his father, a conductor of some note, to New York, and at the age of fourteen was playing violin solos at the Metropolitan Temple. Returning to England, he played under Sir Henry Wood and Sir Landon Ronald , and entered the cinema world just before the war. He has been in charge of orchestras at a good many big towns in the North, and in 1928 he became conductor of the New Victoria Cinema, Bradford. He left there in 1928 to become director of the Bristol Hippodrome Orchestra, with whom he gave his first broadcast in September, last year.
