Eric Robinson

Eric Robinson and his Orchestra gave us hours and hours of wonderful musical entertainment, in his own, very easy-going style.

'Music For You' was a classical music programme introduced by Eric who also conducted the orchestra. It went to air live for an hour on a Wednesday evening once a month and featured artists like Hilde Gueden, Joan Hammond, Luigi Infantino and Annaliese Rothenberger. It was usually broadcast from Studio G at Lime Grove Studios with Crew 5 with Bernard Fox, the senior cameraman, and was produced and directed by Patricia Foy.

Eric was the brother of Stanford Robinson, another famous conductor of the period.
