Contrasts in Dance Music played by Dick Denny 's Twelve
Ragamuffins Conri Tait and his Band
Ralph Gethic and his Band
This programme for dance-music lovers might be called a nicely assorted sandwich, with Ralph Gethic and his band, a combination of four instrumentalists who specialise in comedy and rhythm, between the two bigger bands in order of presentation. Denny and his Ragamuffins were in Calcutta before they came to England to play for dancers at a popular Leeds palais. They have a brass section of five players. Conri Tait is one of the best-known dance-band leaders in Yorkshire ; he plays regularly at a Harrogate hotel, where his band features two pianos.

Gramophone Records A selection of music from JACK BUCHANAN'S SHOWS

Regional Programme Midland

Jack Jordan
Jack Jordan is a young pianist who is daring enough to play modern dance music on the harpsichord-perhaps a shocking innovation to some listeners, but then Jordan has been giving shocks since he was very young indeed. After showing an interest in the piano at three, he horrified his first music teacher-to whom he had been sent by parents who hoped he would develop into a classical pianist — by determined attempts at jazz. Not many years later he was working in an office and playing with dance bands at night. About a year ago he became a professional musician. He first broadcast in a band accompanying a Variety show ; this finished early, so Jordan improvised at the piano with great success. Further broadcasts followed,. and these have included several appearances in the North's ' Flippant Fingers ' series.

' Ned Goes Gnome' by Zachariah Briggus
Friend Zachariah from Yorkshire, whose broad speech is of the Huddersfield variety, has now many ' fans ' among North Regional listeners. Not all of these are Yorkshire people, for while this tale-teller's dialect is unmistakable, it is not unintelligible or uninviting to ' foreigners '. Tonight's story seems to promise a trip to Fairyland-but one never knows where Zachariah will get to next!
