Veel *relaxte* luisteruurtjes.

 

 

Zalig, Bedankt.

Maar deze link is waarschijnlijk niet de juiste.

De laatste opnamen van 2006. Helaas waren de zelfgebrande CD's waar dit eerst op stond door CD rot aangetast. Daarom zijn de opnamen van oktober en november verloren gegaan. September en December zijn er wat minder, heb gered wat er te redden was. Veel luisterplezier met deze relaxte uurtjes Big Bands en Dance bands uit de vroegere jaren (en de prima presentatie door Malcolm Laycock †).  Ga straks verder met 2007.

Het jaar 2007. Van de maand april heb ik helaas niets. Dit is alles van het jaar 2007, en staat garant voor weer een aantal uren luisterplezier. Hierna volgt nog 2008 en 2009 (het jaar waar Malcolm overleed).

Hierbij het laatste jaar.  Helaas het jaar dat er een breuk ontstond tussen Malcolm en de BBC en ook het jaar dat hij overleed.

Bron Today's Times: 

One of radio’s most popular and accomplished broadcasters, Malcolm Laycock was best known for presenting Sunday Night at 10, a celebration of the dance band music of the 1930s and 1940s on Radio 2, before leaving the BBC in acrimonious circumstances earlier this year. His departure after 14 years with the show was sudden and unexpected and caught even his Radio 2 superiors unawares. As far as they knew he as going on holiday for four weeks and would return.

 

But at the end of July he announced on air that the current programme would be his last. His decision was the culmination of a long dispute with Radio 2 over  the content of the show, as well as his complaint that as producer and compiler as well as presenter he deserved to be better paid. His disenchantment began with the dropping last year of the section of the show devoted to British dance bands. Laycock was dismayed and many listeners complained to the BBC.


After stepping down, Laycock rounded bitterly on Radio 2, accusing it of turning its back on older listeners and replacing light music and jazz with “hour after hour” of white rock music. “It is not existing to serve the public any more. It’s existing to grow bigger and bigger and for managers to earn more and more.” He also claimed that he had been constructively dismissed. “They were paying me just over £24,000 for 52 programmes, 52 hours of radio. It is the same average pay for a student leaving college.” He asked for an extra £14,000 to cover his work as producer but the BBC refused.

 

The show has continued in its Sunday night slot, presented by the jazz singer Clare Teal.  Broadcasting represented a significant career change for Laycock, who was born in Keighley, West Yorkshire, where his parents ran a grocer’s shop. He won a scholarship to Bradford Grammar School and trained as a teacher at Goldsmiths College in London. He taught at several schools in South London, at one of which he set up a radio station for excluded students.He rose to become deputy head of Peckham School but his radio work brought him to the attention of the local BBC station Radio London, and he began broadcasting in the late 1960s. He became a staff producer with Radio London and stayed for 20 years, working on a range of arts and cultural programmes. He later moved to the BBC World Service where for six years he hosted Jazz for the Asking and presented many series of Kings of Swing and The Big Band Singers. In 1990 he left the BBC and helped to establish the London-based commercial radio station Jazz FM, becoming its programme controller. One of his Radio 2 shows, Billie Holiday in Her Own Words, won him a Sony radio award and he also produced documentaries on Glenn Miller, Nat “King” Cole and the bandleader Ted Heath. 

 

Laycock began presenting Sunday Night at 10 in 1995 after the death of Alan Dell and built a devoted following of about 350,000 regular listeners through his knowledge and enthusiasm and warm broadcasting style. The first half of the programme featured the leading British  dance bands of the inter-war period, such as Ambrose and Lew Stone, and vocalists including Al Bowlly. This was followed by big band music from, typically, Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman and, Laycock’s particular favourite, Count Basie. The format continued until a year ago when Laycock was told that British band music was being dropped and that the emphasis would hitherto be on swing bands from the 1940s to the present day. The show is currently billed as “swing-era hits”.

 

Away from the microphone Laycock was president of the Frank Sinatra Society, edited Jazz Magazine International and compered concerts by the Syd Lawrence Orchestra, Don Lusher’s Ted Heath tribute band and the Laurie Johnson London Big Band. Above all, he connected with ordinary big band enthusiasts, always prepared to help them with their queries, however obscure, and they were vociferous in castigating Radio 2 over what they saw as ham-fisted treatment of their passsion and its champion. Laycock’s wife, Elizabeth, died this year after a long battle with cancer and he is survived by his two sons. Malcolm Laycock, radio presenter and producer, was born on November 1, 1938. He died on November 8, 2009, aged 71
