b. Frans Bayetz, 1914, Rijkevorsel, Belgium. Although he became most widely known for his function in the 50s using the Belgian radio dance orchestra, Bay started his profession playing trombone in the 30s. He performed in a number of configurations, mostly associated with dance music, in his homeland and in addition in holland and Germany. By the end of Globe Battle II he used the Ramblers, a Dutch music group, as well as the Skymasters. He worked well in traditional western and central European countries and in Scandinavia before developing his own refined big music group, which evolved in to the better-known radio studio room orchestra. He led this orchestra on a far more or less constant basis through the entire ensuing decades.
