Les Seager and the Craigside Rhythm Band with MILDRED HAMMOND (soprano)
(By permission of Colwyn Bay Follies,
Colwyn Bay) from the Craigside Hotel Hydro, LIandudno
Les Seager's rhythm band is a combination of first-class musicians, all of whom come from the North Wales coast. The leader, Les Seager, and his two brothers form the backbone of the band, while all the players have been together for so long that it is not surprising that good team work is the result. In addition to being winners of various dance-band contests, the players can boast of being the first to introduce swing music into the leading hotels of North Wales. At Craigside Hydro their originality makes them a magnet to the dancing public of Llandudno. There are two orchestrators in the band. One is Les Seager and the other is Sid Parsons, the first trumpeter, and between them they have devised many special numbers specially arranged to suit the individual mannerisms of each player.


Soprano: Mildred Hammond

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
