Forty minutes of rhythm with Kay Cavendish
at the theatre organ
Ever since March, when Phil Finch , organist of the Warner Theatre,
London, joined up, Molly Forbes has delighted audiences at this famous West-End cinema with her versatile playing. Before playing at the Warner Theatre she had taken over from Al Bollington (also called up) at the Paramount Theatre. It was Bollington who gave her her first theatre-organ lessons, and swayed her from her intention to take up teaching. Soon after taking these lessons she became assistant organist to Fredric Bayco at the Dominion Theatre. Before the war, she played the organ at the Tivoli Theatre, London, following another woman organist, Ena Baga.

This afternoon you can meet Mr. Lovejoy, Enoch, and Ramsbottom in their dressing-room, and hear the opening of a ' Happidrome ' show. You can meet your old friends George Lockhart and Doodles "the clown, from the circus, and listen to a well-known theatre organist, and the kiddies' finale from a big seaside entertainment.

Narration written by Wilfrid Rooke Ley
Mr. William Thomson has great pleasure in announcing that, at considerable expense, and as a great personal favour, he has induced a galaxy of refined and talented artists direct from the principal concerts of the United Kingdom, to appear in the Mechanics' Institute Hall
In the days before every village and country town could boast of a cinema, the travelling concert was a big date in the lives of country folk. Memories of such a concert will be revived in this evening's Scottish Half-Hour. The programme has been prepared by ex-Bailie William Thomson , whose experience and memories of the Scottish entertainment world extends over a very long period.
Adapted for broadcasting from* the novel of Charles Dickens by Audrey Lucas

Gluck, younger contemporary of Handel and* Bach, was the father of modern opera. ' The opera, when he took it up ', says Ernest Newman , ' was the laughing-stock of Europe. It left his hands a serious form of art, carefully thought out in all its details, with a new method and unity of purpose.'
Iphigenia in Aulis was one of his greatest successes.
