The 1951 Rolling Review Show … # 6


We all have a musical backdrop to our lives which extends from the cradle to the grave. The great pianist, composer and conductor Alberto Semprini used to host a light music programme on BBC radio called Semprini Seranade. He always introduced his musical selection with the words: “Old ones, new ones, loved ones, neglected ones”. 

This then is the the 1951 Rolling Review Show which each week features a piece of music I have enjoyed at some time in my life. I hope you enjoy them as well. Let me know and please feel free to Reblog.


Telstar 1 was a communications satellite launched on July 10, 1962. It successfully relayed through space the first television pictures, telephone calls, and fax images, and provided the first live transatlantic television feed. Though no longer functional it is still in orbit around the Earth.


“Telstar” is a 1962 instrumental performed by The Tornados written to celebrate the satellite. The track reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in December 1962 and was also a number one hit in the UK Singles Chart.

Happy Trails Telstar …

  1. I like the album cover. Album cover design has come a long way since then, but that vintage look sends me a wave of nostalgia.

  2. Love the instrumental. 60’s music ROCK! 🙂

  3. Thankyou kris you have educated me again. I always associated telstar with the shadows☺
