Housewives’ Choice: The George Elrick Story Please note that we judge the condition of this product to be: Used Very Good The book comes with its original dust jacket which is in very good condition. The book has had little use and pages are all straight and not furled. The George Elrick Story was published in 1991 and is his autobiography. Grorge played in many of the most famous British big bands of the 1930s and 1940s, alongside the likes of Bert Ambrose, Henry Hall and Louis Armstrong, had many hit songs as a vocalist, and starred in theatres up and down the country. He was even given his own radio programme, and was one of the first DJs to be heard over the radio, on the programme “George Elrick’s Band Party”. In 1942 he began working on the programme “Housewives’ Choice” and was an instant success, quickly establishing himself and being voted top DJ seven times. In 1952 he moved into management, guiding the fortunes of Mantovani and his orchestra with whom he toured the US and the world. The book is from the collection of Peter Boizot MBE (1929-2018). The book has been signed by George Elrick in 1998 and comes with an additional note also signed by George.
