: THE BRASS BAND MOVEMENT IN THE MIDLANDS

Coventry Salvation Army Band
Conductor, W. B. Major
Each item will be preceded by a short excerpt from the history of the band
This band was founded fifty-five years ago, and since then has had a fine record of unbroken service. It had the honour of being the only provincial hand at the first post-war Bandmasters' Council and Festival at the Clapton Congress Hall. It was the first to introduce the BB flat sousaphone into the brass-band world, and it was the first Salvation Army band to introduce the timpani.
At a recent congress of fifteen hundred bandsmen in Birmingham the band was used for demonstration. Further evidence of its artistry and popularity can be gathered from its many tours and broadcasts. Its first appearance at the microphone was at Aberdeen in 1924. W. B. Major , who is in charge this evening, has been the bandmaster for fifteen years.

: JACK HILL AND A PIANO

Jack Hill is a native of Birmingham, where he studied at the School of Music. He has written music for several light radio shows, and theatregoers will remember that he wrote the music for one of Emile Littler 's pantomimes. As a light pianist he has given a number of solo broadcasts in the last five years, and he has also earned a big reputation for his septet, formed mainly of playeri who have worked together since they were in their teens. The repertoire of this combination contains a number of Jack Hill 's special arrangements.

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.
