Peter the Squeezer Lyr Req: songs about hot dogs (47) RE: Lyr Req: song about hot dogs 30 Apr 17


Not a song - but a tune (and a half)!

Hot Dog - Sidney Torch

Recorded on the organ at the Regal Cinema, marble Arch, London (the largest cinema organ in Europe), some time in the mid 1930's.

This instrument had a very extensive (almost excessive) range of silent picture effects, including a set of tuned bird whistles, which can be heard at about 1'07".

The organ was removed into storage in Cornwall about 1964, and the Cinema demolished. The instrument survives, and is currently undergoing restoration.

I heard some years ago that Leslie Clair was a nom-de-plume for Sidney Torch.
