The Roadmender Yarns-8
'Wee Jock flies high' by ROBERT MACMASTER and More ' Stories in Music', played by GERALD SHAW
Gerald Shaw was born in 1911, and lost as little time as possible in taking up the study of music. He learned to play the organ in Edinburgh, and at the age of seventeen was appointed music-and-odd-jobs master at a preparatory school in Hastings. He stuck this for four years, but jumped at the chance of playing a cinema organ in that town. He came to the Regal Cinema, Glasgow, in 1933, and began to broadcast fairly regularly next year. His father is Captain Frank H. Shaw , who is known a, a writer of sea stories, and also as a radio dramatist.

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.
