STRICTLY FOR THE BIRDS

Southern
15th May 1961 - 6th November 1961

A weekly, later twice-weekly jazz show from Southern, fetaturing regulars The Dudley Moore Trio and Bobby Samson. The show was directed by Peter Frazer-Jones and also featured Alex Orgar as reporter.

There was an audience present and the set design resembled a jazz club. It's probable that Moore was recording these shows while performing in Beyond The Fringe.

The show was scheduled to run for 13 shows but was extended. It was replaced by another jazz show Tubby Plays Hayes.
