Malcolm Vaughan & Kenneth Earle


MACE is looking more closely at two clips featuring Malcolm Vaughan today.

Malcolm Vaughan was a welsh singer (born in Abercynon in South Wales) and actor. He was born in 1929 and died in February this year. Mr Vaughan was known for his distinctive tenor voice and had a number of hits in the 1950s.

Alongside Kenneth Earle, who he met in 1963, Vaughan became the straight man in half of a comedy double act in variety theatre but he also recorded many popular ballads and had many hits in the late 1950s.
