Synopsis

Apart from being one of just two non-Americans in history to be honoured with America’s prestigious “Golden Bandstand Award,” South African broadcaster, Henry Holloway’s remarkable impact on American light music during his 40 years on the air, internationally, is told in this book, in words and pictures. Holloway’s dozens of long-running radio series on American music legends are jewels, in addition to his regular series, “Swing, Sing and All That Jazz”, the title of which clearly depicts Henry’s penchant for that genre. His relentless pursuit to perpetuate the best from the Golden Age has prompted remarkable responses from music legends like Artie Shaw, Buddy DeFranco, Sammy Cahn, Professor Paul Tanner, Neal Hefti, Steve Allen, Bob Crosby, Les Brown, Milt Bernhart and Ray Evans, to mention but a few of many. His “Golden Bandstand Award”, invitations from the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, the Society Of Singers, the Glenn Miller Birthplace Society, setting world records with his 60 hours radio series on Les Brown in 2001 and his 115 programmes on Glenn Miller in 2004/06, lectures on luxury cruise liners, broadcasting on the BBC, being interviewed on television and by the press in the USA; these and many other highlights are encapsulated on a first-hand basis in this remarkable autobiography by a unique South African.
