'The Public Social Services'-2
John Smith , his Father, and Grand-father
A. D. K. OWEN
This evening A. D. K. Owen continues the history of the Smiths. Listeners who heard the previous talk already know a good deal about this typical but mythical working-class family. They have been introduced, for instance, to John Smith 's house on the municipal estate outside a large industrial town in the North 'of England. And they have heard enough about John to visualise the type of man he is : a fitter's mate, earning not much more than two pounds a week; The wife, Mary, too. She has been married ten years or so, and was once employed in a jam factory. Then there are children and relations to complicate the scene. How this family manages to keep going and take advantage of the Social Services provides an abundance of interesting material for this talk and the talks that follow.

HARRY BIDGOOD AND HIS REVUE
Nelson Keys has broadcast in every monthly radio revue-the first season running from January to May last year, and winding up with the Review of Revues ; the second season beginning in October and running monthly till December. Tonight Nelson Keys opens the New Year with the January Revue of 1936. ' Bunch ' Keys is the most individual revue artist of our generation. The stage revues in which he has played are as many as their names are familiar : Listeners will remember his brilliant work on the air in Songs from the Shows, Music-Halls, and Nine Days' Wonder at Radiolympia two years ago.
