My Music

Last Update: 07-Mar-2010 A Global British Comedy Collaborative document. Edited by Sandy Finlayson.

My Music was created by Tony Shryane and Edward J. Mason, who also created My Word for the BBC. The first show was recorded July 31st , 1966and broadcast January 3rd, 1967. The last show was recorded in November of 1993 and broadcast on January 24th, 1994. My Music was broadcast in Britain on the Home Service for the first season and then subsequently on Radio 4. It was also broadcast on the BBC World Service and made available to stations around the world via the BBC Transcription Service.

The panelists for the first eight seasons were Ian Wallace, Denis Norden, David Franklin and Frank Muir. David Franklin's last appearance before his death was broadcast on March 18th, 1973. He was replaced by John Amis, who made his first appearance January 1st, 1974.

My Music’s “Chairman” was Steve Race who also compiled the questions beginning with the seventh series in 1972. (For the first six series this task was carried out by Edward J. Mason.) My Music had four producers during its long run: Tony Shryane, Bobby Jaye, Pete Atkin and Richard Edis.

Broadcast dates in this catalog were taken from The Radio Times.[1]  The repeat broadcast orders in Australia, and the US have been used as circumstantial evidence of the order of original broadcasts. This is a large assumption – we know there are vagaries in the BBC Transcription Service order as originally distributed, in the US distribution channel (WFMT FineArts), and in the broadcast stations in Australia and the US. While most of our recordings are those that were edited for foreign broadcast by the BBC Transcription Service, we do have a few of the original Home Service recordings and these are listed in the document.  Shows that are waiting to be slotted into a specific series were originally divided into four main categories, based on changes in signature tune and cast. [2]

Series A: 1966-73 [First Signature tune [mellotron] with Ian Wallace, Denis Norden, Franklin & Frank Muir.]

Series B: 1974-75 [First Signature tune with Ian Wallace, Denis Norden, John Amis & Frank Muir.]

Series C: 1976-82 [Second Signature tune [3][brass] with Ian Wallace, Denis Norden, John Amis & Frank Muir.]

Series D: 1983-93 [Third Signature tune [piano] with Ian Wallace, Denis Norden, John Amis & Frank Muir.]

This is still very much ‘a work-in-progress’ and it almost certainly contains errors and internal inconsistencies so there will be changes made as the work proceeds. Take the information here as a guide rather than gospel. That is not to suggest that the research has been in any way sloppy or careless, just to emphasize that slotting a given episode into the series/edition framework is an imprecise science based on extrapolation and implication.  Comments, suggestions and especially contributions of recordings are most welcome!
