Johann Friedrich Fasch (1688-1758) was born near Weimar and became a scholar of the Thomasschule in Leipzig, where he studied under Kuhnau. He founded a Collegium musicum which eventually led the way to the establishment of the famous Gewandhaus concerts. In 1722 Fasch was appointed Court Kapellmeister at Zerbst, and later was invited to compete for the post of Cantor at the Thomasschule against Bach, but he refused to do so. Bach appears to have held a high opinion of Fasch's music. Not only did he study a number of Fasch's church cantatas, but he actually copied out five of the composer's orchestral suites. Apart from religious music, Fasch wrote various orchestral and chamber works.

A Musical Biography

: My Lords. Ladies and Gentlemen, The Toast is HAIL, VARIETY!

A series of programmes in which the author, Gale Pedrick , turns a spotlight on various traditional types of Music-Hall acts, each programme being compered by a present-day exponent of that style
No. 5—Dialect Comedian
Compere, Albert Burdon
Cast
Neil McKay
Marriott Edgar
Betty Driver
Bert Maddison
The BBC Variety Orchestra, and a section of the BBC Revue Chorus
Conducted by Mark H. Lubbock
Produced by Roy Speer
The Lancashire ' comic ', typified by the great George Formby , has always been part and parcel of the music-hall. His memory is honoured in the fifth of the ' Hail, Variety! ' series, which deals with the art of the dialect comedian. This programme should have the widest appeal, for comedians representing the humour of Scotland, Ireland, and Wales will take part.
Acts from Lancashire and Yorkshire are plentiful, but when it comes to Welsh humour the field is limited.
However, Roy Speer found Bert Maddison , who has a perfect Welsh accent and a big reputation in Variety. Neil McKay carries the flag for Scotland ; and a well-known Irish singer will recall the days of Pat Feeney , Michael Nolan , and' Pat Rafferty. Albert Burdon , a North country comedian, is to act as compere of the show, and Marriott Edgar , creator of Sam (and his musket) and of Albert (and the Lion), is taking part. And Betty Driver (Gracie Fields's brilliant young protegee) completes the bill.
Among the famous dialect comics whose work will be recalled in this programme are Jimmie Learmouth , George Bass (a ' Mummerset ' comedian), Joe O'Gorman , Eddie Foy , and Sandy McNab.

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.
