Random Cutting - Song-Pluggers (1934)

Click to Read
Scandal at the BBC? Whatever next? A lot of the prime-time broadcasting on BBC radio in the 1930’s was made up of live relays of dance orchestras from popular London nightclubs. Great publicity for the bands and the clubs but also the songs or tunes they played, which was then reflected in the very lucrative music-sheet business. No wonder there was a certain amount of skulduggery involved.
