Harry Bidgood

Another 78 from the boot sale pile. A 8" disc on the Broadcast label. "Me And Jane On A Plane" is a novelty number that was ideal for The Bonzo Dog Band and their ilk to play in their sets accompanies with daft props like a goggles, huge moustaches and scarves stiffened with wire so they looked like they were caught in the wind. Wikipedia says - "Henry Bidgood (1898 – November 15, 1957) known as "Harry" was an English composer, dance band leader and musical director for films.[1] Born in London the son of composer Thomas Bidgood. He studied at The Royal College of Music. Bidgood released dance band music under various names, mostly notably Primo Scala and his Accordion Band.[2] Over the course of 20 years he would frequently broadcast on the BBC. Bidgood was also the musical director for numerous films including several George Formby films." BTW I must apologise for all the text running together. Blogger has changed for the worse and I don't know how to fix it! Harry Bidgood - Charmaine Harry Bidgood - Me And Jane In A Plane
