at the piano
Alan Paul has been a BBC Variety accompanist since May, 1934, but was well known on the air ten years earlier. Among the many things he did in the way of broadcasting he used to play with the J. H. Squire Celeste Octet. Besides playing the piano brilliantly, he has broadcast on the harpsichord, celeste, and muste! organ.
He is best known to listeners for his two-piano acts with Ivor Dennis. Like so many pianists in the light entertainment world, he has his serious music side as well. Some two years ago some of his own compositions were heard in a programme called ' Pastoral '.

A programme of his music on gramophone records
Presented by Count Alfred Hessenstein
In honour of the composer's seventieth birthday
On April 30 Franz Lehar celebrated his seventieth birthday, and few there are who have not hummed or swayed to his tuneful melodies. He has given the world gay, carefree tunes beyond the counting, and in this programme you will hear some of them-from such shows as The Merry Widow, The Count of Luxembourg, and Land of Smiles.
