I AM sending this on behalf of my father, Jim Moran. I enjoyed reading the article on the Dudley Hippodrome in The Bugle (January 30 edition). I have very fond memories of the Hippodrome. Sunday nights in the early 1950s used to be Big Band Night.

My late wife, Margaret and I used to go every Sunday to see the top bands; Eric Delany, Jack Parnell, Squadronnaires, Sid Phillips, the wonderful Ted Heath and his singers, Dickie Valentine, Denis Lotis and Lita Roza.

I wonder if anyone remembers Freddie Bell and the Bell Boy being there - wonderful times.

Kind regards.
