From the Library: An Early 20th Century Entertainment

Today on Radio Riel, please join us for a day of music from the Vic­to­ri­an and Edwar­dian eras. The pro­gramme will include pop­u­lar songs and bal­lads famil­iar to those of us who fre­quent the music-halls.

In addi­tion we shall be enjoy­ing some of the mar­vel­lous musi­cal con­fec­tions of Sir Arthur Sul­li­van and Mr Lionel Mon­ck­ton; and, from time to time, we shall regale you with the sounds of the lat­est in Mechan­i­cal Instru­men­ta­tion, includ­ing the famous Carousel Steam-Organ. We will also hear some music from the Band-stand at the Gar­dens of the Crys­tal Palace, and the lat­est Dances from the Con­ti­nent.

We guar­an­tee that a most enjoy­able time is to be had by all.
