Reg Pursglove. (UK) Reginald Pursglove was a very highly regarded violinist, arranger and bandleader from the 1920s onwards. Here is a time-line of his recording career:
The Boston Orchestra (at the Berkley Hotel, London)    January 1925
The Sylvians (at the Savoy Hotel, London)                    October 1926 - December 1926
The Savoy Orpheans (at the Savoy Hotel, London)       January 1927 - December 1927
Ray Starita & his Ambassadors Club Band                    March 1928 - June 1929
From 1928 onwards, he was very busy free-lancing for bandleaders Ambrose, Jack Payne, Ray Noble and Lew Stone as well as leading his own band from 1930. During and after the second World War he was involved with the BBC's "Music While You Work" radio shows, also making some recordings under his own name for Decca's "Music While You Work" series in 1943 and 1944, and also in 1946 for Regal Zonophone.
