A. G. Street
The many listeners who appreciated A. G. Street's series of broadcast talks, 'Country Ways and Country Days', which he gave from April to July last year, will welcome his return to the microphone.
He is a unique personality in that he is a lover and observer of the country and its ways and manifestations, an observer of nature, a keen fisherman, a writer and broadcaster, and a farmer as well, as was his father before him.
A. G. Street knows the Wiltshire
Downs as intimately as did W.H. Hudson. The adder, the prickly golden gorse that is never out of flower, the speckled trout in the stream - they are all things to study and to dwell on. And in these talks listeners will hear something about country people : for instance, a comparison between the life of a labourer's wife today and fifty years ago. Wherever his thoughts take him, the author of 'Farmer's Glory' and 'Strawberry Roan' will show listeners a reflection of his mind. In fact, he will think aloud.

The Pavilion, Bournemouth SIR ALEXANDER MACKENZIE , by reason of his long association with the Royal Academy of Music-he was its Principal for thirty-six years, retiring in 1924 - exercised a very powerful influence, not only on the generation now in its maturity, but on a your ger school of composers and executives actively practising today. Sir Alexander's crowded life has witnessed the progress of British music from the days when the influence of Mendelssohn was all-pervading, to the present day when British composers take their rightful place in the esteem of the world. To this status Mackenzie has contributed invaluably. The concerto to be played this evening was written as long age as 1885, and was first performed at the Birmingham Festival with Sarasate as soloist.

IN THE AUTUMN of 1932 Gerald Heard gave a series of popular talks under the title of ' This Surprising World' in which he discussed current discoveries in all branches of science and exploration. And he increased the circle of his listeners with his ' Science in Industry' talks in the early part of last year.
This evening he is to give the first broadcast in a new series, in which, at the request of many listeners, he is to resume his weekly commentary on science and research. He does not speak to the expert or specialist, but to ordinary men and women who like to keep up with the discoveries of today.
WEDNESDAY'S TALKS on farming have become almost an institution, and by a large number of farmers who listen have been voted almost a necessity.
To the farmer busy on his land it is becoming practically an impossible task to keep up with the rapid agricultural developments of today. The early marketing schemes are getting into their stride, but others are about to be launched or arc in the course of preparation, and they will again confront the farmer with new problems and difficulties.
He has other causes for perplexity.
From experimental and research stations, from agricultural colleges and private farms, there flows a constant stream of recommendations and advice, sometimes contradictory, often highly important. The farmer, conscious of heavy odds against him, feels desperately that he must, if he is to be successful, keep pace with this new knowledge.
Mr. John Morgan will, during his weekly talks, sort out and clarify current agricultural news, and will continue to bring to the microphone those whom he considers have something of value to contribute to the practical farmer. All farmers are invited to send him their problems-or their grumbles-and where possible, Mr. Morgan will deal with them during the course of his talks.

Conducted by AYLMER BUESST ANTON BRUCKNER had a great deal in common with Cesar Franck. They were born and buried within a few years of each other ; both were distinguished church organists and led simple and devout lives ; as composers they suffered from the narrow and malicious opposition of their academic contemporaries ; and due appreciation of their genius came only towards the end of their careers. However, while Franck wrote only one symphony, Bruckner wrote nine, the best of which are considered by many Viennese musicians to be the equal of Brahms's four symphonies.
