Sunday Bandstand 17 September 2017

Lawrence Wright (15.02. 1888 – 19.05.1964) was a British popular music composer and publisher. He was born in Leicester and opened a music shop in the city in 1906. A short time later his first song, "Down By The Stream", was published, and by 1912 he had established the Lawrence Wright Music Co in Denmark Street, London. 
He went on to write (or co-write) over 600 songs under his own name and as Horatio Nicholls, including the World War I propaganda song "Are We Downhearted? No!", and would receive an Ivor Novello Award in 1962 for Outstanding Contribution to British Popular Music. He also wrote songs under the pseudonyms of Gene Williams and Betsy O'Hogan,

He was one of the very rare composers of popular music in this period to make a substantial amount of money - it had not been unusual to see composers who had written dozens of hits die in poverty

Our opening march was written by Horatio Nicholls - Enjoy
