Yehudi Menuhin is perhaps the most remarkable prodigy violinist in the whole history of music. Born at New York in 1917, Menuhin was taken to his first concert at the ago of fourteen months, and, much to the surprise of his parents, he gave no trouble, and listened intently throughout a long orchestral programme. When three years of age Menuhin commenced to learn the violin, and* at six he played for the first time in public before an audience of 12,000 at the Civic Auditorium.
Menuhin's genius was manifest from the beginning, and within three or four years he had matured into a violinist of the front rank, fit to be compared with the greatest masters of his instrument, both from a technical and interpretative point of view.

A Recital of some of the Reverend J. J. Williams ' works, by GUNSTONE JONES
(West Regional Programme)
(Led by MARIE WILSON )
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
FRANKLYN KELSEY (Baritone)
This work, which had its first performance a few months ago, is based on Manx foLk-songs. The first, ' The Good Old Way,' is an old and typical air written mostly in the Dorian mode. The second tune, which introduces the lively section of the work, is a reel, The Manx Fiddler.' The third tune, ' Sweet Water in the Common.' relates to the old practice of summoning a jury to decide questions connected with watercourses, bountlaries, etc. The fourth is a fine old hymn, ' The Harvest of the Sea,' sung by the fishermen as a song of the thanksgiving after their safe return from the fishing grounds.

In Dance Music with Saxophone Solos by HOWARD JACOBS
This special engagement brings to the studio one of the most stylish modern dance bands.
Howard Jacobs came to this country from America in 1922 and has organised the dance music for several leading London hotels. He is well-known both as a leader and as a brilliant performer on the saxophone, and listeners will have a taste of his qualities in both capacities tonight. He acquired the finger technique necessary for the saxophone by speed typewriting, and he is the third member of his family in three generations to excel on this instrument.
It is hoped, if transmission tests permit, to introduce the new Neo-Bechstein piano to listeners in this programme ; this is an electrically-operated instrument that combines the functions of a concert grand piano and a radio-gramophone.
