: HARRY Roy and his BAND

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.

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.
