Rhapsody in Black: 1

Music in ebony from Harlem to Savannah with Elizabeth Welch, Frisco, Evelyn Dove, Malmaison, the Georgia Crackers, the BBC Revue Orchestra, conducted by Hyam Greenbaum
Script by the compere, James Dyrenforth
Produced by Roy Speer

Elizabeth Welch by the warm colour of her voice has endeared herself to listeners. Born in New York City, she was singing at nine years old. She sang in a church choir, a glee club, and a quartet, then found her way to the theatre. She met Caleb Porter; met him again in Paris, and he said: 'I've a song for you.' She sang 'Solomon' at the Boeufsur-le-Tok and then at Chez Florence. Then C.B. Cochran engaged her for Nymph Errant at the Duke of York's Theatre, London, and she never looked back. She won radio fame in 'Soft Lights and Sweet Music'.
Evelyn Dove, London-born and as lovely a coloured singer as ever broadcast, was a student at the Royal Academy of Music, studying singing and music. Then she went abroad. She has performed in no fewer than nineteen countries, and made a great hit in cabaret at Connie's Inn, New York. She was a radio favourite in the States. Two years ago she came to England to win radio fame over here.
Frisco was the name given to Joscelyn Bingham, also a coloured artist, when he drew crowds wherever he appeared in San Francisco. He came to Europe and added to his fame. not only as an artist but as a club proprietor. 'Frisco's', both in Paris and London, became famous. He last appeared on the stage in Erik Charell's production of The Merry Widow in Berlin before the days when Hitler was to take everything merry from that city.

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.
