Many

of us re­mem­ber BBC Ra­dio pro­grammes from the Fifties and Six­ties when the tune­ful mu­si­cal ac­com­pa­ni­ment to many com­edy shows was of­ten played by the BBC Va­ri­ety Or­ches­tra con­ducted by Paul Fe­noul­het or the BBC Re­vue Or­ches­tra un­der the baton of Harry Rabi­nowitz.

Paul died in 1979 but Harry reached his cen­tury last March only to die in June. Re­mark­ably, dur­ing the Fifties many of the shows went out live so there was no room for mis­takes. Born in Jo­han­nes­burg, South Africa, Harry stud­ied over here at the Guild­hall School of Mu­sic and af­ter a full life, re­tired to Ore­gon in the USA.
