Lt.-Col. B. G. Baker , D.S.O.
When he was a young man Colonel Baker followed the example of many other late-Victorian youngsters and went to Germany to receive a German military education. Discipline was severe in the Dresden Military College, but while there Colonel Baker assimilated a rare knowledge of the German soldier as exemplified in cadets from every province of the country. After leaving the College he served for a time in the German Army, and this morning he is going to describe some of his experiences while on manoeuvres in Alsace at the end of the last century.

With his flair for old songs, rousing songs, chorus songs, John Rorke is likely to be ' unusually yours' this afternoon. Revue, musical comedy, single acts, double acts, all come alike to him. Perhaps one of his greatest successes on the air was in that fine favourite series ' Old Music-Halls'
--a success he shared with Denis O'Neil , Tessa Deane , and Bertha Wilmott , in a series that began in 1933, ran through the whole of 1934, and was revived the following year.

Sonata in F, Op. 99, for violoncello and pianoforte
1 Allegro vivace. 2 Adagio affettuoso. 3 Allegro appassionato. 4 Allegro molto played by William Pleeth (violoncello) and Margaret Good (pianoforte)
If the cello has been neglected with regard to concertos, at least it has been rather better served in the way of sonatas, particularly by the nineteenth-century composers.
Brahms's Sonata No. 2, in F, con-posed in 1887, is a magnificent piece of writing, terse and dramatic in expression and concentrated in thought, and the entire range of the cello is exploited with telling effect. The piano part is no less big in design and the music contains a fair number of expression marks that require careful interpretation.
