Richard Crean , who formed his present orchestra for broadcasting in 1936, had his first lessons from his father, James Crean , and went on to the Royal Irish Academy in Dublin, where he studied under Dr. Esposito and R. Warburton Rooke. He was appointed sub-professor in conjunction with Dr. Vincent O'Brien at a large school outside Dublin which was famous for its music, and conducted its orchestra, military band, and very large choir while he was still in his 'teens.
He played as a pianist at several
State balls in Dublin and also privately at the Viceregal Lodge ; toured the world with the Quinlan Opera Company; and was engaged by Percy Pitt for the 1914 Grand Season at Covent Garden. He conducted the orchestra for one of C. B. Cochran 's most successful shows, Evergreen, and also the Palladium Orchestra for four Royal Command Performances, broadcasting regularly from the Palladium from 1934 to 1936.

A radio play by George Frederick Johnson
The scene is chiefly laid in the old
Phcenix Theatre, at Arksworth, in South Yorkshire — now ' gaunt, blackened, decayed ... its stage broken and cavernous, the rags of its curtain swaying to the draughts ... abode of rats and owls ... shelter for tramps. '
