This well-known broadcasting dance band, immensely popular on Merseyside, has steadily built up -a big reputation in the last five years at Liverpool's Rialto Ballroom. There are Liverpool folk in plenty who scout the idea that there is a better band in the country. McCormick himself has played in bands at all the big hotels in Scotland under Henry Hall 's direction. He was a good violinist, with a band of his own, when he was only eighteen. In addition to all this, he is an excellent 'talent-spotter'; several of his 'discoveries ' have since won fame in other dance bands.

THE VICTORIA THEATRE,
BURNLEY and THE THEATRE ROYAL,
The Burnley Victoria is one of the oldest of Lancashire's theatres, and it has put on almost every kind of entertainment during its fifty years' career. The late George Formby made his debut there, and a number of the big names of today have to thank this house for their first opportunities. Stockport Theatre Royal, which has also an honourable history, was recently on the air for the first time. It has been the home of straight plays, and many famous players have appeared there.
