Guitar Club - 30th January 1960
Guitar Club ran for 3 years on the BBC Light from 1957 to 1960. It was devised and presented by Ken Sykora. Ken wanted a programme which would present all kinds and styles of guitar music: from Spanish to Skiffle, Classical and Swing. Various performers from Dave Goldberg to John Williams played in front of a live audience, initially every Monday evening and then on a Saturday at 6pm. It was extremely popular and played a major role in spreading the appreciation of guitar playing throughout the UK, inspiring the next generation of guitarists of the 60s.
With the exception of Ken and Ike Isaacs, we found little info on the very fine performers on this Guitar Club. If you know anything about any of them, please let us know.
