Weather Forecast and News
Relayed from The May Fair Hotel
The popular dance band !eader and principal vocalist from the May Fair Hotel has had many nick-names from ' Dynamite Roy ' to ' England's Eddie Cantor
As listeners know, he broadcasts from the May Fair every Friday from
10.30 till midnight, but he and his band perform there from 9.30 till 2.0 in the morning every night of the week. That on top of his business day would tire most people, but ' Dynamite Roy ' is good for a game of golf, a run in the car, a day at the races, swimming or anything else.
In the summer he is the most successful bowler of the dance band's cricket team.
In early days he and h's brother Syd
(who now manages for him) had an eighteen-week engagement at the Coliseum, London, followed by a twenty-six week one at the Alhambra.
He formed a band of his own, end it was the first band to be engaged at the Café Anglais. It is the same band you have heard for two years from the May Fair Hotel.
Harry's other vocalists are
Bil Currie and Ivor Merton. Listener; will hear all three tonight.
