Calling All Workers

3:00
 Svend Christian Felumb


Early on in the Second World War the BBC in Britain used its radio services to boost the morale of millions of factory workers through a daily programme of non-stop music called "Music While You Work". During the periods when this show was not being broadcast, factories often played records on their own loudspeaker systems. Recognising the need for a series of discs offering catchy, tuneful music, in 1942 Decca started releasing 78s on a special ’Music While You Work’ label, and many of these contained light music. A selection has been chosen for this CD, with popular orchestral and show music appearing alongside some true light music ’classics’.

"...The remastered sound quality is surprisingly good and the music makes an encouraging and wonderfully nostalgic background for spring cleaning. Other new releases in Guild’s excellent light music series include Beyond The Blue Horizon (GL 5129), Cornflakes (GL 5130) and Light Music On The Move (GL 5131)."
