Head­land from Eden­thorpe near Don­caster, asked about th­ese two ge­nial gen­tle­men who hosted ra­dio pro­grammes on Sun­day af­ter­noons and week­days. They served pop­u­lar mu­sic very well and de­serve to be re­mem­bered.

Born in South Africa, Alan Dell ( 1924- 1995) ( above left) was an ex­pert on Bri­tish dance bands and sev­eral singers while jovial Benny Green ( 1927- 1998), was born in Leeds but brought up in Lon­don. A sax­o­phon­ist and pro­lific writer, he was an ex­pert on al­most ev­ery­thing mu­si­cal, es­pe­cially jazz.

Happy 90th birth­day to Trevor Hill, seen here with his wife, Mar­garet Pot­ter, discussing his lat­est Cameo Car­toon, The Oper­atic Cat, broad­cast on Chil­dren’s Hour in Septem­ber 1950.
