Sing again some of the old favourites you sang as a child
The programme will be introduced by The Layman, who has also chosen the records
The series of broadcasts that begins today is not meant to rival the singing of hymns in broadcast services ; the idea is quite different.
Apart from the musical merits of hymns, the old hymns have a particular appeal for older people. These broadcasts will bring records of old favourites among the hymns of Moody and Sankey and the classics of ' Ancient and Modern ', all of which have their own highly-prized associations for those who first .heard them many years ago.
