Alan Dell - A Date With The Forties

"A Date With The Forties"
BBC Light Programme, 18th September 1967, 2130-2200
Alan Dell presents half an hour of Glenn Miller.

This is followed by a minute and a half of the start of "Emery At Large" (Series 3, episode 8.)



  1. Yes, going by the Times listings this has to be August or September 1967.

  2. sounds like a forerunner to the dance band days

  3. Towards the end of the show Alan says that next week's programme will be the last. A Date with the Forties ended in the last week of the Light Programme so that dates this show as Monday 18 September (2130-2200). A great find, and yes it does sound like Dance Band Days.
