Release Date: 01.04.2008

The popularity of Guild's first collection of Childhood Memories (GLCD 5125) has prompted a second dip into the musical world that happily transports many of us away from the problems of everyday life. Here is a mixture of well-known favourites alongside some catchy offerings from the production music libraries which would have been heard on numerous occasions on radio, television and films during the middle years of the last century. Among many tracks now available for the first time on commercial release, a rarity from the 1950s is Fred Hartley's Scherzetto for Children which used to introduce special programmes on BBC Television for the youngsters every day.
