Cuirm chiuil Ie 6rain a dh' iarradh leis an luchd eisdeachd
(A Gaelic musical programme)
Here is another of these tuneful little programmes that are delighting not only those who speak ' the tongue' but also many Sassenachs who have learnt to appreciate the lovely melodies of these traditional tunes. One of the most enthusiastic listeners to them, incidentally, is Davy Burnaby.
Tonight's programme consists of request numbers that have been received in listeners' letters, and it includes some of the best of the traditional Gaelic airs. Even those who do not understand the language will be able to appreciate the songs.
