Remember the popular radio programme Those Were The Days ? The orchestras of Sydney Thompson, Sidney Bowman, Harry Davidson, Sidney Davey and Bryan Smith? Well, David Corbett has written a comprehensive 600 page history of the show, surveying BBC Radio’s old time dance music output from 1943-1991. If you are interested in light orchestral music or melodies in a more popular vein from the music hall to popular standards, you will find a rich reserve here with a detailed analysis of how the style of music changed over half a  century.

The book is available from David by either sending him an email at                                    g-michael1@sky.com , or by writing to him at 51 Haygate Drive, Wellington, Telford, Shropshire, TF1 2BZ, enclosing a cheque for £34.
