Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra Playing at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania (Relayed in collaboration with the Columbia Broadcasting System)
Tommy Dorsey was born in Pennsylvania in 1906. He began as trumpet and trombone, but later specialised with the latter instrument, which has made him famous. He is one of the two Dorsey Brothers, the other being Jimmy, saxophone. They played together for a number of years, and their band was famous. Two years ago they split up. and already Tommy's orchestra is as famous as Jimmy's.
Tommy, by the way, began the vogue of playing classics in swing tempo. His vocalists are two: Edythe Wright , a young girl who joined him comparatively recently, and Jack Leonard. Next month he and his orchestra are due to appear at the Hotel New Yorker, New York City.
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.
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.
