Nelson Elms must be the tallest broadcasting organist in the country; for he measures six feet seven inches. His signature tune is ' Trees '-the inference being that elms are more popular than other trees.
He first broadcast at the Leeds
Ritz in 1935, and has since broadcast from cinemas all over the country. He has played dance music on a large four-manual concert organ at Wallasey Town Hall for a charity ball, and at Leeds Town Hall accompanied community singing for a boxing tournament.

1-' How did we get here ? '
We have been at war for over a year, a year that has put our institutions, ideas, and ways of life to a searching test. The events of the past twelve months have thrown new light on many old problems and posed some new ones.
The story of the last twenty years is a necessary prelude to taking stock and any looking-ahead for the future.

Symphony No. 3, in F played by the BBC Orchestra (Section B), leader Paul Beard , conducted by Clarence Raybould
Brahms's Symphony No. 3, in F, is the shortest, most concentrated, and perhaps the most romantic of his four symphonies. One of the most interesting -features of the work is the use of a ' motto ' theme consisting of the notes F-A flat-F, which is heard at the outset on woodwind, horns, and trumpet.
Not only does this theme (' motif ' would be a more explicit description of it) dominate the first movement, but it is introduced with significant effect in the slow movement and again in the finale.
