A talk about what to eat and how to cook it, by S. P. B. Mais
and his Hippodrome Orchestra
at the theatre organ
Since Donald Thorne first won his spurs in the West End of London he has been responsible for arranging many of the big hit numbers for such famous dance-band leaders as Jack Hylton , Henry Hall , Roy Fox , Debroy Somers , Jack Payne , Sidney Kyte , Carrol] Gibbons, and many others.
When he was six years old, he joined the choir of St. Mark's Church, Clerkenwell, and soon knew all the hymn tunes by heart. At the age of fourteen he was appointed organist. Perhaps the most memorable event in his career was wrTen he played in the dance band which appeared before the King and Queen at Lord Lonsdale's golden-wedding celebrations.
Conducted by Maurice Johnstone
March: Calling all workers
'Calling all workers '-first broadcast at the end of August-is dedicated to all workers by its composer, famous for the Knights-bridge March from his London Suite which did so much to make the fortune of ' 'In Town Tonight'.
Eric Coates has recorded that since the war he has been inundated with letters and telephone calls from all kinds of people, urging him to write a patriotic song, but he felt unable to get down to anything. Then his wife, who goes out day and night on Red Cross work, said to him : 'Why don't you write a workers' march ? After all, we are all workers, from Cabinet Ministers to road-sweepers '. So he got his inspiration.

Aileen Bransden's great ambition was to play the organ, and she has more than fulfilled her wish by becoming one of the most accomplished women organ players in the country. She obtained her first appointment, as assistant organist at the City Temple, when only sixteen. A year later she was playing in Queen's Hall concerts and also at the Royal Albert Hall. Subsequently she became organist at Hanover Congregational Church, Peckham, and afterwards organist and choirmaster at Muswell Hill Congregational Church. She has been broadcasting since 1924.

' Folk tales about the moon ' —
played by Joseph Lewis and his Orchestra
Conducted by Guy Warrack
Ethel Smyth 's two interlinked French folk melodies appeared originally as an intermezzo in her merry comic opera Entente Cordiale, in which farcical situations are evolved from the typical British soldier's ignorance of the French language. The two melodies from which it is made are both French folk tunes, the first a Burgundy vintage melody, the other a tune from Brittany.
The opera was first produced at the Royal College of Music in July, 1925, and had its first public performance, under the composers direction, at the Theatre Royal, Bristol, in October, 1926. It is a ballad opera somewhat on the Jines of The Boatswain's Mate, and is not, therefore, a serious drama.
