THIS concert provides an interesting examplo of how broadcasting can co-operate in Municipal affairs.
Burnley is fortunate in possessing a fund, bequeathed by the late Mr. Massey, from which subsidies can be made for the fostering of Art and Letters in Burnley.
With this financial aid, the Burnley Municipal Orchestra was founded in 1918 out of the Burnley Philharmonic Society. The Chairman of this new and enterprising society is Councillor J. Sellers Kay. Later, in 1920, the Municipal Choir was established.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
