    This appears to be a pseudonym for Harry Hudson. Harry Hudson (?-1969) did not have an orchestra of his own. His was one of the studio orchestras active all through the 1930's in Britain and profusely recorded for Edison Bell's Radio label. the line-up often included such sidemen as: Sylvester Ahola, Lew Davis, Sid Phillips and George Melachrino. Some of his re-issued recordings are under the above mentioned pseudoym, as well as under the credits of The Radio Rhythm Boys and the Deauville Dance Band. This excellent recording was made in 1930. Vocal by Sam Browne (1898 – 1972), who was an English singer and one of the most popular British dance band vocalists of the 1930s. He is remembered for singing with Jack Hylton and with Ambrose and his Orchestra, at the Mayfair Hotel and Embassy Club, with whom he made many recordings from 1930 to 1942, and for his duets and variety performances with the singer Elsie Carlisle. Born in London, England, Sam Browne's first recording was made with the Jack Hylton band on 23 August 1928, "That's My Weakness Now", issued on HMV B5520. Over approximately a year and a half, Browne made over 100 records with Hylton, including sessions in Berlin and Milan, and was to return to the studios with the Hylton band between 1938 and 1940. Browne first recorded with Bert Ambrose's band on 8 February 1930, the titles, on the Decca label, were "A Little Kiss Each Morning" and "Body And Soul". It was recorded again on 22 February with a violin solo by Eric Siday. By March 1930, Ambrose had switched to the HMV label, and more Browne recordings began to appear such as "Moanin' For You" (B5813) "Cryin' For The Carolines" (B5814), "A Bench in The Park" (B5842) and "Leven Thirty Saturday Night" (B5847). Browne's work with Ambrose took him to Monte Carlo and Biarritz, coupled with regular radio broadcasts from the Mayfair Hotel. Browne and Elsie Carlisle became a popular singing pair with Ambrose. One of his more interesting records was from 1932, entitled "The Sun Has Got His Hat On". A reader of music, Browne's confident and warm delivery made him popular with bandleaders and record buyers. With the publication of a full discography it is now clear that Browne made over 2,000 recordings. Some of the other bands that featured him included Alfredo (on Edison), Bertini (on Eclipse), Harry Bidgood (on Broadcast), Harry Hudson (also on Edison) and Lew Stone (Decca). Browne was featured in several British films, including Calling All Stars, Variety Parade and Hi Gang, as well as on numerous film shorts. Browne worked with Bebe Daniels and Ben Lyon during World War II in the 'Hi Gang' radio series, and after the war continued to tour and record.
