: A Pianoforte Recital



Unknown: Arthur Benjamin

: Callender's Band

Conductor, TOM MORGAN
THE real name of ' Stephen Adams ' was JL Michael Maybriek , to all accounts as handsome a man as ever graced a concert platform. He sang under his own name, and sang, of course. his own songs. J. L. Molloy , another immensely popular song writer of the day whoso songs Maybrick also used to sing, either did not, or pretended not to know the facts. ' You have a splendid voice, Maybrick' he once said ; ' what a pitv you waste it on those rubbishy songs of Stephen Adams. ' But, even joking apart, songs which reached such colossal popularity as did the songs of Stephen Adams could not have been made up of rubbish. It is true The Holy City. which sold then by the million, and The Star of Bethlehem would have no such luck today, but only because our taste in these things is different, not necessarily better. Again, what is wrong with Nancy Lee ? It passed for a good sea-song, as indeed it is, and the words are not a whit more sentimental than Dibdin's Tom Bowling or the sacrosanct folk-song, The Golden Vanity, while the music has of course been bettered, but not very often in that type of song. In those days Nancy Lee was in the music-case of every young man on his way to a party. Du Manner immortalized the fact in Punch with his pen-drawing of ten young baritones turning up at an evening party each armed with a copy of Nancy Lee.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
