It is nearly always the stars and the show-men who steal the limelight when the great musical successes are remembered. We know the melodies, too-but somehow the names of the composers too often escape us. Thie oversight * Nights of Gladmess ' has set out to remedy. Our series has been a tribute not to the actors on the stage but to the men who wrote the tunes they made famous. This evening's chapter marks the end of a seri« whose run was literally extended ' by public demand -and even after four months a wealth of material remains untapped. Throughout the run the rule has been to share each programme between four or five composers, but in the final sixty minutes we shall hear more than a dozen songs by nine different composers, the shows ranging from * Florodora ' to ' King's Rhapsody ' and from ' Merrie England ' to ' The Glorious Days '-with Coward, Rubens, Tauber, and Monckton joining in to give good measure.
