30 May: Bruce Gardiner Solo Piano Concert
Bruce Gardiner studied at Wits University and later in London and the University of Cape Town. He taught at the E.L technical college for 20 years and then at the University of Cape Town for another 20 years. Bruce is best known for his many broadcasts. The first was in Cape Town on the program “Young Ideas”. Bruce was a mere 13 years old and played the tricky “Alligator Crawl” live on the air.
In the later years he did many broadcasts of classical music on the old English service and also light programmes on Saturday mornings – The “Piano Playtime” series. His big break through was joining Rollo Scott in “Over the Rainbow” on Saturday nights. He and Bruce worked together for 12 years producing over 600 different shows.
Bruce is an active pianist and accompanist in and around East London.
