The Spa Royal Hall, Bridlington
For the last ten years Herman Darewski 's Band has belonged, in the summer at any rate, to the north of England. For the last three years they have been at the Royal Hall, Bridlington ; for the four previous years they played at the Empress Ballroom, Blackpool, following an initial three years at Bridlington. This famous band consists of sixteen members ; they play both concert music and dance music, and Herman Darewski conducts. Last year they gave four broadcasts from Bridlington ; this year they are booked for twelve. As far back as 1925, Herman Darewski 's famous band used to broadcast from Co vent Garden.
The genial Herman must he the most prolific song writer alive'. Chariot, de Courville, Cochran-he has composed songs and revue music for all of them. Last year he collaborated with Denis Freeman in the successful radio show, A Charity Affair.

PEGGY COCHRANE (violin)
The story goes that Schubert, after rearing Rossini's operas, wrote his ' Overture in the Italian Style ' to show how easily that sort of music could be turned out. There is in the work (and in a companion Overture that he produced about the same time) a good deal of Rossini's eloquence and harmonic economy, and his trick of working up a climax 'by repeating a little phrase of a few bars.
Near the end there is a hint of a greater master-Mozart, and just a glimpse of Schubert's own face.
André Messager was born in 1853, studied at the Ecole Niedermayer in Paris, and later became the pupil of Saint-Saens. He began writing opera comique and then came to England and wrote a number of light operas that were extremely successful.
The Suite The Two Pigeons is a Ballet in six movements. The first is a March, energetic and with a hint of Hungarian rhythm ; the second is the dance of the two pigeons, dignified and capricious by turns ; the third is a theme with three variations. The fourth a sort of interlude, sprightly and full of interest; the fifth a Hungarian dance, and the last is in a very quick march rhythm.

Fifteen Minutes of Your Favourite
A Social Comedy
Specially written for broadcasting by E. M. DELAFIELD
The famous author of ' The Diary of a Provincial Lady ' made her debut as a radio playwright with this play, first broadcast in August, 1933. It is a social comedy, and a satire. A lively story, depicting human beings who talk naturally, and often wittily ; who, individual and different in temperament and circumstances as they may be, go round and round-like squirrels in a cage. The artist, who has complained all his married life that his marriage has been a handicap and a bondage, refuses his freedom when it is offered him. The schoolmaster, who has pined to be released from the drudgery of schoolmastering, shirks at changing his security for insecurity. The woman whose own marriage has been a failure persists in going on believing that marriage is better than anything else.
