Mr. REGINALD ARKELL : 'Tea Trays and Toboggans'
Porhaps nobody but the author of ' Winter Sportings ', with his delightful wit and turn for humorous verse, would have thought of the title of this broadcast this evening. Toboggans..... That one understands. Switzerland : lager on ice : rinks, runs, luges, skis, land yodelling. St. Moritz the fashionable, Miirren where business is meant. But tea trays? To Reginald Arkell 's whimsical mind they signify the other end of the scale—the unsophisticated end. Little boys and girls with blue noses, sliding down snow-covered slopes to village greens on tea trays, the lid of a box or anything else they can lay their hands on. Listeners this evening are to hear a talk as light as thistledown, as gaily coloured as a bubble.
Mr. J. L. HODSON: 'Interviewing the High and the Low '
Mr. Hodson is one of the crack reporters on the staff of the News Chronicle, and his interview with Alcock and Brown, after their record flight from Newfoundland to Ireland in 1919, was published all over the world. Mr. Hodson is also the author of the war novel ' Grey Dawn-Red Night ', a dramatic version of which was broadcast from North Regional on November 9, 1931, under the title of Red Night. Ho has frequently broadcast in the North.
A Nigger Minstrel Show
Tonight makes the third edition of this ' Real Old Minstrel Show ', which was introduced to listeners in January, 1932, and proved so welcome that it was revived in May of this year. Once more the ever-popular Scott and Whaley head the cast, in which such favourites as Aubrey Pankcy , the coloured singer, C. Denier Warren and PeTrcy Parsons , in their roles of coons, are again to appear, together with the crack banjo trio, the Kentucky Banjo Team. Old and new melodies ; bones, tambourines, corner men-all the traditions of the Minstrel Show.
