Bob Kerr's Whoopee Band Pt. 2

Here's the other side of that cassette with a radio show Bob Kerr did for the BBC in the 80's or 90's?

Songs are-

1. My Brother Makes The Noises For The Talkies
2. That Old Bazaar In Cairo
3. There's A Rainbow Round My Shoulder
4. Overture To Carmen
5. A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square

"The WHOOPEE BAND have performed on stage and TV in most European countries, had their own 45 minute TV show in Germany, not to mention their very own TV series for London Weekend Television in the 70's, it was called "Making Whoopee". They have worked with many leading stars including Lionel Bart, Peter Cook & Dudley More and Max Wall. They have toured with Ralph McTell, Manhattan Transfer and many more.
Such is the bizarre nature of this outfit they not only play Theatres and Festivals all over Europe and beyond, they even played at the legendary BOB DYLAN concerts in Earls Court London in the late seventies and when Roger Daltrey of The Who got married they even played at his wedding. The WHOOPEE BAND have appeared in concert at the Philharmonic Hall in St. Petersburg, Russia and in Denmark with Dame Edna Everage various concerts with Chris Barber, Kenny Ball, Lonnie Donegan and Acker Bilk plus many many more."

It is amazing to find this a recording of this superb show still exists!
I heard this (and the rest of the series) back in october 1988,and was completely blown away then,as I still am now when I hear it.
This recording is somewhat better than my own,which has not improved with age.
Keep up the good work!!

I do have one other recording of a show from the same series,but the quality is lousy,I am looking for ways to improve it,and if I can then I will post a copy of it!
In the meantime,if anyone else has any more,it would be great to hear from you!!!
