' Jobs on a Pleasure Beach '
By a Showman and a Waitress
This morning listeners are to hear how two separate classes of people work while the world is at play on Blackpool beach.
A showman will describe his job. He has been in the business all his life, and knows pleasure beaches everywhere, and the way to entice those who are on pleasure bent. Listeners will hear some of the excitements of his life and what ' making the bet' means.
A waitress at a cafe which keeps open from 6.30 in the morning till 3 the next morning in the height of the Blackpool season will talk about her life. It is part of her job never to look tired, and to be good-tempered and attentive to the holiday crowd. She appreciates it when they regard it as part of theirs to reward her with tips that are a fair recompense for working while others play.

Read by PETER TREVELYAN
The eighteenth century had its characteristic wit, as will be shown in various epigrams and epitaphs and in Dean Swift 's obituary of himself in verse : My female friends, whose tender hearts Have better learned to act their parts, Kotcive the news in doleful dumps;
The Dean is dead: (Pray what are trumps?)...
It had beauty too: for instance,
Congreve's songs at its beginning, and Blake's towards its close; and it had charm, as is apparent in Ambrose Philips's delightful verses to a little child. Other items to be read by Peter Trevelvan will be an extract from Pope's 'Essay on Criticism' and Gray's 'Ode to Spring'.
