' Budgeting a Dress Allowance'
Dancing this afternoon to Tommy Kinsman and his Band
Tommy Kinsman was born in Liverpool. At the age of thirteen he was working in a cinema as a page boy, and was then promoted to cinema operator. Two thousand feet of film were burnt in an accident, so he decided to join the mercantile
marine. During the war he sailed regularly between England and America, and it was over there that he became interested in the new American Jazz. Demobilised, he joined a local dance band. But a London dance band visited Liverpool, the conductor heard him play, and so Kinsman found himself in the Hammersmith Palais de Danse band, and stayed with them for nearly two years. In 1927 he formed his own band, broadcast from Liverpool, but afterwards met with set-backs. When he gave an audition for Ciro's Club, London, and was engaged, he had only a shilling or two in his pocket. He spent two years there, and two years at the Ritz, and from that time never looked back. He began recording and sending out dance bands. In 1935 he gave his first broadcast from a London studio, and had as his vocalist the now well-known Jack Cooper, whom he discovered in a London store. Tommy Kinsman and his Dance Orchestra are now playing in Madame Tussaud's restaurant. They broadcast the late dance music on December 15.
