Read by V. C. CLINTON-BADDELEY
There has never been a writer whose works have stood so well as those of Charles Dickens the severe test of being read aloud. Dickens himself was the first man to realise this virtue in them, for apart from occasionally treating his personal friends to a pre-publication reading from the latest .' number ', he eventually toured both England and America, giving a highly successful series of professional readings, which were classed among the most popular entertainments of the time.
Clinton-Baddeley has had the opportunity of presenting Dickens to a wider audience (in the literal sense of the term) than Dickens ever dreamt of. He first broadcast a series of readings from ' Great Expectations ', and these were followed up with further series from ' David Copperfield ' and ' Dombey and Son', the latter in the summer of 1932. In these readings he revealed himself as a first-rate interpreter of the infinite variety of character and mood to be found in the pages of Dickens.
ARTHUR W. DELAMONT
The Vancouver Boys' Band was founded in 1928, under its present conductor, at Kitsilano, a suburb of Vancouver. It was begun in quite a small way. A few boys met to make a sort of music with the instruments common to most boys, harmonicas, or, as we say, mouth-organs, tin-whistles, drums, and perhaps a ukulele or two ; but development was ambitiously planned and rapid, so that the band is now of full military band strength and quality. Enthusiasm and application have worked a marvel.
The band at its full strength is seventy. The boys, whose ages range from eleven years to nineteen, are all from school or college, and it is therefore a band of students-probably unique of its kind. Already the boys have had a great deal of experience. They have, for example, played their way across Canada, and two years ago went on an eight weeks' tour through Europe, visiting England where they gave two broadcasts, two exhibition concerts at Belle Vue, Manchester, and were officially received at Grosvenor House by the High Commissioner of Canada.
Geraldo and his Orchestra (By permission of the Savoy Hotel, Ltd.)
with OLIVE GROVES, WEBSTER BOOTH, THE RADIO THREE, THE Top HATTERS and THE ROMANTIC YOUNG LADIES
The Programme announced by the Television Announcers ELIZABETH COWELL, JASMINE BLIGH and LESLIE MITCHELL
Geraldo backed a winner in 'Dancing Through'; he has hacked another in 'Romance and Rhythm'. It was his own idea, and so well has he carried it out that this is the eleventh edition.
Olive Groves, whose voice is always so effective on the air, has been in all but the first two broadcasts, when she was already working; Webster Booth has missed only one, when he was singing in Hiawatha at the Royal Albert Hall. The Romantic Young Ladies, the Top Hatters (men), and those well-known favourites the Radio Three (girls) all contribute to the singing of the great jazz numbers past and present that Geraldo has collected.
A feature of the programme is that the three Television Announcers are to be on the air together for the first time.

On July 4 Myra Hess played the Schumann Concerto with the Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam under Mengelberg at a concert in connection with the British Exhibition there. Though Miss Hess has played in most countries in Europe, in the autumn she is to make her début in Scandinavia, where she will visit the principal centres of music.
The story of Myra Hess 's struggle for fame is told by Guy Fletcher this week in his series ' People You Hear' on page 8.
Schumann's Symphonic Studies
Schumann composed his ' Etudes symphoniques' in 1834 when he was twenty-four years of age. These magnificent piano studies are written in the form of a theme and variations. The theme is by Baron Hauptmann von Fricken, who composed a set of variations on it for flute. The work was sent to Schumann for his criticism and he was greatly impressed with the possibilities of the theme for piano treatment if suitably adapted. In the finale, however, it gives way in importance to the opening melody, which is based on an air from Marschner's Der Templcr und die Jüdin sung to the words ' Who is the highly-honoured knight' (referring to Richard Cceur de Lion) and ' Rejoice, proud England ' (a tribute to Sterndale Bennett , to whom the Etudes are dedicated).
