Doris Arnold brings you the first of a new series of her programmes of gramophone records, featuring ' classic ' songs and melodies that you know and love
With the exception of one or ;v;o broadcasts in ' Ack-Ack, Beer-Beer ', it is over a year since Doris Arnold has broadcast ' These You Have Loved '. Long before the war, this series had established itself as one of the most popular in the whole of broadcasting, and every week Doris would be deluged .with letters of request from all over the country.
Now, she brings this lovable series back to the microphone again, though for its new run ' These You Have Loved ' will not be a request programme. Doris feels, and her listeners will probably agree, that she can be trusted to compile the sort of programme that everybody likes. As before, her choice will cover old favourites of every kind, from dance music to opera, from symphony to swing, from straight song to violin solo.

From 1927 to 1931 Peter Yorke , whose concert orchestra is the band of the week, was Jack Hylton 's pianist and arranger, and then he launched out as an arranger on' his own. In 1935 he formed his own band, which was given a first broadcast by Eric Maschwitz in a ' BandBox ' programme. This led to the series ' Sweet and Lovely ' — series which ran on from 1935 until the outbreak of war and made Peter Yorke 's name, and incidentally, gave him his signature tune.
He formed his concert orchestra in 1938 and played for the 'Theatreland ' broadcasts-some forty in all. During this week he will provide a pot-pourri of music from Gilbert and Sullivan to hot music, specially arranged. He is shortly to go into the R.A.F.
