The Two Bobs

Entertainers in A Laugh or Two, A Song or Two, A Joke or Two, by A Bob or Two

Bob Adams and Bob Alden, who are prominent among the originators and demonstrators of the present craze for syncopation, begin a week's engagement with the B.B.C. to-day.
Seventeen years ago, when they first came to this country, their particular form of entertainment was practically unknown. Before they came together, the two Bobs were both song writers. At Atlantic City (the Blackpool of the U.S.A.), where songs are made famous overnight, these two artists met. They were both engaged in demonstrating their own particular songs and there sprang up an intimate acquaintance. One night they appeared together in one of the popular cabarets-and they have been together ever since, with ever-increasing success.

Some Summer Eve

A Cameo by Gordon McConnel.
Featuring Yvette, The Quaint Comedienne

On the eve of Yvette's debut in a London Cabaret Show, Mac, the Muddlehead, has taken her for a run in a borrowed car to get a breath of fresh country air before dinner. They alight in a pleasant sylvan spot. It is a balmy evening, birds are warbling, brooks are burbling and so is Mac, simply because

Whereupon a thundercloud darkens the sky, hailstones hurtle, and a wintry wind gives rise to a deep depression. Soon, however, the setting sun beams forth with renewed vigour and Yvette rehearses her cabaret numbers; after which the appearance of a new moon on the horizon heralds the intrusion of Cupid, and they return to town -

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
