Thirty minutes' nonsense
A lot of people will call in and listen to the Revue Orchestra, conducted by Hyam Greenbaum
The programme presented by Bill MacLurg and Tom Ronald

Few men have done better work at Bristol than Hyam Greenbaum, conductor of the Revue Orchestra, which has done so much to relieve the BBC Variety Orchestra in these days of congested programmes. Greenbaum, among the most versatile of musicians - he is equally at home with opera, musical comedy, symphonic music, and light music - founded and conducted the BBC Television Orchestra, which was disbanded at the outbreak of war, many of the members forming the nucleus of the Revue Orchestra. Greenbaum is a front-rank artist on both the violin and the piano.
His wife is Sidonie Goossens, principal harpist with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
