More History.

Continuing my 'trawl' through the Melody Makers I note that in June 1930 Albert Kendall and his Savannah Band were resident at the Oxford Galleries - the first time I've noticed their name on the Oxford Roll of Honour. Can anyone add further info?
Also, much has been made on tv this week about the re-opening of the Dreamland Amusement Park in Margate. This same MM reveals that one Maurice Burman was leading the band at the Dreamland Ballroom. Drummer Maurice later went on to become a regular columnist for MM.
