SONG CAR­TOONS

How well did you do last time? The first car­toon was “Run Rab­bit Run” made fa­mous in the war by Flana­gan and Allen, while the sec­ond was “Rock Around the Clock” by Bill Ha­ley and His Comets, a name clearly linked to Hal­ley’s Comet. Here are two more mu­si­cal car­toons to amuse you.

FRAN­CIS JACK­SON

Fran­cis was Direc­tor of Mu­sic at York Min­ster from 1946 un­til 1982. Born at nearby Mal­ton, on 2nd Oc­to­ber 1917, he is now ap­proach­ing his 100th birth­day, hav­ing packed in a life­time of achieve­ments, in­clud­ing trav­el­ling around the world giv­ing recitals. Con­grat­u­la­tions!

This was a popular mu­sic hall song.
