A first for the British Music Hall Society! Its own radio series!

The BMHS will be broadcasting a series of shows, called A Little Of What You Fancy on Angel Radio.

Angel Radio known as ‘Home of Pure Nostalgia’ is an award winning charity based  community radio station based in Hampshire.It broadcasts 24/7 musical memories across the UK via internet , 89.3 Hampshire FM  and DAB from 22 transmitters based in all the major UK towns.

A Little of What You Fancy is to be broadcast on Angel Radio at 6.00pm this coming Saturday 23rd November for the next 4 weeks and the shows will feature a different theme each week.

Show 1’s theme is Travel and will contain a fine selection of original Music Hall songs taken from recordings stored in the archives of the BMHS.

Many of the tracks and artistes will be favourites  from the days of Music Hall and Variety, but there will also be some lesser known songs and performers that we’re sure you’ll enjoy.

The shows have been compiled by BMHS member Bill Haynes; BMHS Sound Archivist Andy Foster (who also presents the programmes) and BMHS Historian Peter Charlton.

Further  30 minute shows will be featured on Saturdays 30th November; 7th December and 14th December. All at 6pm.
