Swing with a Smile

A cheerful mixture of rhythm and ridicule with Chick Farr and George Hughes (the famous comedians)
Norman Long (a song, a joke, a piano)
Robin Richmond (at the organ)
Oscar Rabin and his Band
Robin Richmond, supporting Oscar Rabin and his Band in this entertaining programme, is a young organist who gave his first broadcast in this country on September 13, 1938, but curiously enough he had broadcast from Schevening, Holland, ten days earlier.
He played for two years at the Trocette Cinema in South London, and later at the Granada, Brighton. He learnt the church organ while still at school, and when he was seventeen landed his first job, as assistant organist with the Streatham Astoria Orchestra.

THE NAME ON THE LABEL'

Personalities of the gramophone and their records
Kitty Masters, the well-known stage and radio singer
Interviewed by Charles Maxwell
Kitty Masters started her professional career at the age of ten as ' Wee Kitty Masters, the Wee Mite with the Big Voice ', but she leaped into general fame when she succeeded Phyllis Robins as vocalist with Henry Hall and the BBC Dance Orchestra. After two years she and Les Allen left Henry to team together on the halls.
The days of her great radio fame coincided with those of the song ' Little man, you've had a busy day '. She made that number very much her own-a well-known critic described her way of singing it by saying that ' her voice caresses the microphone '—and has since adopted it as her signature tune.






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.
