Compere CHARLES MANNING
AND HIS ORCHESTRA
Production by CHARLES PENLEY
Tonight listeners are to hear a programme from well-known broadcasters. Stainless Stephen-colon, comma, full-stop-is so famous that a racehorse has been named after him, and it won the other week. Navarre-' Round the World in Song '-can give faithful impersonations of anybody from Tauber to Harry Lauder. from Maurice Chevalier to Chaliapin-and even Melba and Clara Butt.
The great Sam Mayo was a star in the heyday of the Music-Halls. He adopted a dressing-gown then ; but in recent years he has discovered himself as a straight act with a piano.
Tollefsen is a Dane and truly a wizard with an accordion. The Tiger Rag-a-Muffins play two pianos and used to be with Harry Roy 's Band. Peter Bernard , the popular entertainer, is to compere. And everybody knows Charles Man ning and his Orchestra.
W. H. INGRAMS
Here is the description of an adventurous journey W. H. Ingrams made with his wife into the interior of the Hadhramaut that runs along the Gulf of Aden, in Southern Arabia. He describes it as literally a country of the beginning of things and points out that it is mentioned in Chapter Ten of Genesis under its Hebrew name of Hazarmaveth.
Mr. and Mrs. Ingrams set out from the port of Makullah, and they were escorted up the valleys-or wadis as they are called-by Beduins, the leader of whom played the caravan forward with haunting tunes on a pipe, while his companions flashed their daggers and danced in the sun.
They reached the open steppe country
-or jol-6,000 feet up and found the graves of giants everywhere. They came to great rambling castles like Arabian Nights palaces; found, at Tarim, their host's palace ablaze with electric light and sumptuously supplied with electric fans, iced drinks, a swimming bath, and telephones. They watched Beduins fighting in the desert, and entered country no European has ever trodden before.

Sonata in B minor, Op. 58
I. Allegro maestoso; 2. Scherzo: Molto vivace ; 3. Largo; 4. Finale : Presto ma non tanto
On January 5, 1845, the Paris Gazette musicale announced that ' Chopin has returned to Paris and brought with him a new grand Sonata, and variantes. These two important works will soon be published.' What the ' ̇variantes ' were, nobody knows, but the ' grand Sonata ' was the B minor published in the following June, five years after the ' Funeral March ' Sonata.
Like its predecessor it is full of magnificent music. It is not, however, an organic whole, but it consists of four very fine parts. The scherzo is delightful, the slow movement one of Chopin's loveliest nocturnes.
