Thanks to Sarah Aston for sharing this photo of the Midland Radio Orchestra. Sarah’s father, John Kingdon formed the Midland Light orchestra along with Norrie Paramor, which pre-dated the Midlands Radio Orchestra. The MLO was more classically orientated.

Harold Rich is at the keyboard in this photo, with Norrie Paramor conducting.

  1. Hi, the orchestra was called the BBC Midland Radio Orchestra (not ‘Midlands’) and the photo shows Norrie Paramor conducting, not Harold Rich (as stated when you click on the photo). Lovely to see some memories of those great days, though!
