Forgotten songs from the broom cupboard


Jan 27, 2021

Dennis Potter's seminal TV 1978 drama was choc full of great music and songs from the 1930s, largely from British dance bands and orchestras. Bob Hoskins, Cheryl Campbell and Gemma Craven starred and did a great job of lip syncing to the likes of Al Bowlly, Roy Fox , Lew Stone, Bert Ambrose, Arthur Tracey, Maurice Winnick, Jack Paine, Jack Hylton, Billy Cotton and Henry Hall. They all feature in this episode, as does George Hall, with Roll along Prairie Moon  and Flannigan and Allen with Shine on harvest moon. Other songs are Goodnight Vienna, We'll all go riding on a rainbow, Wednesday night hop, Stage coach, Man of my dreams, Home of the range, The waltz you saved for me, In the valley of the moon, Night and day, Life is empty without love, My Wild Oat, Its only a paper moon, Moon over Miami and You rascal you.
