Mabel Constanduros -The Buggins Family - Windyridge VAR46

Mabel Constanduros CD
Mabel Constanduros created the first "radio family" with her invention of The Buggins Family. Initially broadcast in 1925 and with regular broadcasts from 1928, Mabel Constanduros wrote over 250 scripts. At first she played all the speaking parts including Mrs Buggins, Grandma and the three children, but soon she was joined by Michael Hogan who played the role of father. On this CD there are 13 separate sketches, often including the cantankerous Grandma, who was at the heart of the radio progamme.
