Tonight's bill is the bumper one Christmas week deserves. Les Allen is to broadcast for the first time since he left the B.B.C. Dance Orchestra to go on the halls. During his two years with Henry Hall he received 50,000 fan letters and autographed 25,000 photographs.
The genius of Marie Lloyd will be remembered this evening by the broadcast of her three sisters and her daughter. Alice was for many years a big star in America. Daisy, who took the family name of Wood, was for years one of the most popular principal boys starred in every town in England. Rosie, billed in America as ' The Lloydie with a voice ', has played all over the world. Marie Junior is already known on the air. She has sung some of her mother's songs several times in London. The four Lloyds are now touring in a ladies' revue.
The famous Wilkie Bard has just returned from a tour in the North. He is as well known as his song ' I want to sing in Opera '. He appeared in a Command Performance as long ago as 1912, and has played Dame and Idle Jack in Drury Lane pantomime.
A popular broadcaster in Mabel

Sonata on Psalm 94
Matthew Locke was born at Exeter. On the Restoration he became Composer in Ordinary to Charles II, after writing part of the music celebrating the King's Coronation in 1661. Locke was an important and diligent composer during the few years of his activity, writing for both the Church and the stage. The music to Macbeth is his most famous composition. The ' double organ ' for which Locke composed the work now to be played was an instrument having a Great Organ and a Choir Organ.
Reubke was a pupil of Liszt, who regarded him as a composer of unusual promise. This Sonata, however, is a work of more than mere promise. It shows a ripeness and imaginative power truly remarkable in a youth barely out of his teens. It is also the forerunner of many important organ works based on a ' programme '. The portions of the Psalm dealt with are verses i, 2, 3, 6, 7, 17, 19, 22, 23 of the English Prayer Book version, and the following appears to be the scheme : First Section : Verses 1, 2, 3, 6, 7. Adagio : 17, 19. Fugue : 22, 23.
