Piano Impressions and Then—
Who are they?
THE B.B.C. THEATRE ORCHESTRA, under the direction of S. KNEALE KELLEY , will play during the programme
Miss Margaret Bannerman has been appearing lately with Sir Gerald du Maurier in the very successful revival of Diplomacy at the Prince's Theatre; listeners who remember her characteristic successes, such as in. Somerset Maugham's social comedy, Our Betters, may have forgotten her success in the Chariot revue, Buzz-Buzz; tonight she will remind them of her flair for the show with music by singing a number of new songs that have been specially written for her first broadcast. This attractive bill is rich in genuine radio talent and material. Ronald Frankau , singing very topical songs at the piano, is at his best when broadcasting. The Moderniques, four modern harmony singers with a guitar, are broadcasting for the fourth time; a few weeks ago they were unknown, and their first broadcast was also their first public performance as a unit; now they are freely compared with the Mills Brothers. This bill brings back another recent broadcasting discovery, Danny Malone , the sweet voiced Irish tenor who, in less than a year, has risen from oblivion to the top-line; he has been a.broad lately, working hard with a famous teacher, and this is his first broadcast since his return. Then there is the brilliant satire of Elizabeth Pollock , mimicking more than the voices and mannerisms of famous actors and actresses, and the polished musical fooling of Wolseley Charles. The bill concludes with a light-hearted interlude that will give. fleeting but characteristic glimpses of several famous radio stars. A distinguished programme exhibiting studio Variety at its best.
