Top Selling Songs of Summer 1941

80 years ago, when people bought music to play at home, which tunes really flew off the shelves?

Patricia and Matt perform songs that sold the most copies of sheet music in the UK 80 years ago, according to contemporary sales figures, using the sheet music itself. Hear the music that was not only played on the wireless and the great hotels, but at home!

To be included: Amapola, Waltzing in the Clouds, When they Sound the Last All-Clear, Sand in my Shoes, Room 504, The King is Still in London, I've Got Sixpence, and Apple Blossom Time.

Patricia Hammond mezzo
