"King of Light Music" Eric Coates on Radio 4 Ex

This was a very interesting programme - some would no doubt quibble with the title but , whatever the truth the Music of Eric Coates sums up the optimism of the 1930 's, the Grim deterministic Patriotism of the War years and the renewed optimism of the 1950's. I doubt there are few - even now who don't know some of Coates' music

Corruption in the CLPGS :
The Seven Social Sins are:
Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!
