from the Argyle Theatre, Birkenhead

The Argyle Theatre, Birkenhead, is so famous that it is referred to merely as the Argyle — everyone knows where it is. The summer months, when many other theatres close up, are its busiest time, and T.D. Clarke - the third generation of the same family to manage it - has to employ a man to conduct parties over it. They come from everywhere in Great Britain, even from Canada and South Africa, and ask to see where the microphone is, to have a look at the old bills. One and all they express surprise that the Argyle is so small, they thought it was a huge theatre.
Tonight listeners are to hear acts drawn from the following: Jack Edge; the Lloyd Family; Raymond Smith; Lapidus and Whelan; Winsor and Wilton, and Doris Cuban.
