Program - Something Light and Bright


Barry’s program, ‘Something Light and Bright’, goes to air every Thursday evening from 8 pm to 11.00 pm. It covers a range of popular and big band music from 1930 to 1970 with a feature of the children’s records that were popular in the 1940s and 50s.

We often wonder what happened to some catchy tunes that were heard all too briefly on the radio. They were probably ‘B’ sides of records, the ‘A’ sides of which were popular at the time. In turn, this most likely meant the ‘B’ side numbers were overlooked when music from the era was transferred to CD with the danger of their being lost forever. In ‘Something Light and Bright’ you may hear those numbers again when Barry plays both sides of a 78 or 45 record. Also be prepared to expect the unexpected!
