Henry Robert Hall (1898-1989) was a musician who became particularly well known in 1932 when he became the leader of the BBC Dance Orchestra.

His radio programme, 'Henry Hall's Guest Night',  ran on and off for almost twenty years, introduced by the catchphrase: 'This is Henry Hall speaking and tonight is my Guest Night'.
