' Hogmanay Memories'
John R. Allan
John R. Allan, who securely established himself in the ranks of Scottish writers by his book 'Farmer's Boy', comes of Aberdeenshire farming stock, and now lives in the country near Stirling. After studying at the University of Aberdeen, he became a journalist but soon gave up office work for the freedom he loves.
The players of the wood-wind section of the BBC Scottish Orchestra started this unusual but very popular combination. To their number they made such additions as a guitar player, a bass, and a trumpeter, but they differ from most other light orchestras by having no piano, saxophone, or drums.

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.
