Today on the Light Programme, we’re featuring some nostalgic tunes going back to the 1930s and forward to around the 1950s (with, as always, a few exceptions).
Sourced from original and modern recordings, you’ll hear from the likes of Bert Ambrose and his orchestra, Ted Heath, Eric Coates, Richard Addinsell and many more. Tune in as we take you back.
