‘Those Were The Days’ Radio Show
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.
