A native of Neath, Tom Jenkins spent most of his teens taking part in piano competitions and Eisteddfodau, and won 185 prizes. On the death of his piano teacher, who was also an organist at a large church in Neath, Tom took his place as organist at the age of seventeen. Eighteen months later he became organist and choirmaster, and assisted Dr. Hopkin Evans in forming the Neath Choral Society. Since then he has held appointments as musical director of the Cardiff Plaza and organist and manager of the Swansea Plaza.

Suite for viola and piano played by Leonard Rubens (viola)
Irene Kohler (piano)
Bloch's Suite for viola and piano, which won a Coolidge prize, was written while the composer was living in New York in 1919. It is said that each movement is intended to suggest the atmosphere of a different Oriental country, and that the composer at first labelled each movement with a title but afterwards decided not to bother the listener with programmatic implications.
Ernest Newman has said of this work: ' Here is a mind of the most definite individuality, that can say things in music that have never been said before, and say them beautifully and convincingly without any resort to extravagance in idiom.

An adventure story by Jenny Nicholson and Gordon Crier.
[Starring] Jessie Matthews
Music by Kenneth Leslie-Smith
with Gwen Lewis, Ian Sadler, Forster Carlin, Frederick Burtwell
BBC Revue Orchestra, conducted by Hyam Greenbaum
Produced by Gordon Crier
The other week Sonnie Hale without Jessie Matthews made his first broadcast in the new series, 'Doctor Dick'. Tonight Jessie Matthews without Sonnie Hale is to give her first broadcast in yet another new series - an adventure serial story, each episode of which will be complete in itself.
A year or two ago Jessie told in 'Star-Gazing' the romantic story of her rise from a little girl who was earning her living as a ballerina at the age of fifteen to her present fame and fortune. If Chariot discovered her, probably Cochran made her. There is no more glamorous star of the stage, the screen; or the air.
The first of a new series of talks
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Malcolm Sargent
Cyril Smith (piano)
Ernst von Dohnanyi's ' Variations on a Nursery Song ' is very characteristic of the composer's brilliant and individual style. The charming and simple theme (' Ah vous dirai-je, Maman ') is subjected to a series of variations that are as imaginative in treatment as they are full of contrast in colour. Furthermore, the music has many touches of humour, notably the final cadence ending on a low bassoon note.
The work is dedicated ' To the enjoyment of lovers of humour and to the annoyance of others '.

Rayne (comedian), Terry Wilson (light comedian), Elva Ledson (comedienne), Mark Sheridan (comedian), Muriel Cronshaw (soprano), Jackson Manley (baritone), Zoe Wheeler (soubrette and dancer), Billy Richards (tenor), Wendy Maye (soubrette), Reg.
