  • General Info
General Information
Description
Charles Chilton MBE was a BBC radio presenter, a writer and a producer. Born in Bloomsbury in London, England, he never knew his father ? who was killed during the First World War ? and when he was six his mother died as a result of having a botched abortion, with the result that Chilton was raised by his grandmother. He was educated at St. Pancras Church of England School. Chilton left school at the age of 14, and after a brief apprenticeship making electric signs, he joined the BBC as a messenger boy. A year later he became an assistant in their gramophone library. He had a passion for jazz music, and in 1937 formed the BBC Boys' Jazz band. His first role as a producer was for I Hear America Singing, after which he moved to the BBC variety department. He then presented his own show between 11pm and midnight called Swing Time, and a weekly jazz programme called Radio Rhythm Club. Next came five years' war service with the RAF, after which he was sent to Sri Lanka to run the forces radio station with broadcaster David Jacobs, later to participate in Chilton's Journey into Space.
