(All arrangements by Ivan Huckerby )
After experimenting for some time, Ivan Huckerby , the conductor of Aston Hippodrome Orchestra, formed the combination to be heard this evening-ten players of wind instruments, with S. C. Cotterell , the clarinettist, as leader.
Ivan Huckerby took the conductors' course at the Royal Academy of Music, and conducted a concert at Queen's Hall when he was only nineteen years of age.

Stoke-on-Trent Choral Society, founded in 1909, has given concerts regularly for eighteen seasons. On two occasions the choir has sung under the baton of Sir Henry Wood. The two hundred members of the Society are connected chiefly with the pottery industry. Their enthusiasm can be gauged from the fact that many of them live as far as twelve miles away from the hall where the rehearsals take place.

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.
