Melody Maker - Gone but not forgotten


What better Christmas image could we choose than this art décor Melody Maker front page from Xmas 1926 and sent to us by Colin Aitchison? Colin's collection of  Melody Makers, covering the decades from the 1920s to the 1960s, are becoming legendary. He was recently approached by a radio station in Oregon re a 1944 copy reporting that Glenn Miller was missing. They plan to use it in a broadcast rather than some late news!
Interestingly in 1926 it cost one shilling yet by 1960 it was only six old pence! If only everything had come down like that.
Check out his library of complete issues here.
