Major Sheard is a Blackpool man who lived for many years in India.

H. de Vere Stacpoole
This is the first talk in a reminiscent series to be given fortnightly by established broadcasters. H. de Vere Stacpoole, whose talks in the Savoy Hill days will be remembered by many listeners, is famous as the author of ' The Blue Lagoon ', and is surely the most versatile of living novelists. Stories as different as ' The Pools of Silence ' and ' The Street of the Fluteplayer ' have come from his pen, and nobody who read ' Patsy ' and ' Garryowen ' could possibly doubt his being an Irishman.
He is to speak of his childhood and youth—especially his childhood spent at Kingstown. His mother knew Charles Lever and was well up in Irish folk lore; he says that he attributes to her whatever gifts he may have for writing. An Irish doctor, who was stone deaf and carried a stethoscope in his hat, gave him the idea of becoming a doctor. The great charm of his talk lies in his description of the Irish characters he met around his home as a child, among them Macmahon, a gardener, who saw fairies and believed that ships that never came back sailed into the full moon.

Admired by Bach
Johann Friedrich Fasch (1688-1758) was a pupil of Kuhnau and an eminent contemporary of Bach. As Court Cappelmeister and organist he composed a great deal of music of both a religious and secular style. It is interesting to note that Bach held Fasch's music in such high esteem that he took the trouble to copy out five of Fasch's orchestral suites.
Schumann's Opus 41, dedicated to Mendelssohn, consists of three string quartets, of which the first is being played this evening. All three were composed in practically a month, and on more than one occasion during that period Schumann completed a whole movement in one day.

ST. MARTIN'S SUMMER APPEAL by the Rev. PAT MCCORMICK , D.S.O.
The Holiday Fund was started many years ago by Canon Sheppard' Dick ' Sheppard-then Vicar of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. By means of it, both he and his successor there, the Rev. Pat McCormick , have been able to help many poor people to have a good holiday, and especially those who have seen better days and to whom a small gift of money makes all the difference. As all work involved is done by voluntary helpers, there are no overhead expenses, the only charge upon the fund being the cost of postage and printing of receipts. Apart from this, every penny given goes towards somebody's holiday.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

A Pot-Pourri by Julius Buerger The BBC Chorus
(Section C) and The BBC
Conducted by Stanford Robinson
Music knows no national frontiers, yet folk music almost invariably is as characteristic as a flag. Fascinating music it is too, full of melody and rhythm, and expressive of the soil and the joys and pains of love. Dr. Buerger has collected the folk music of eleven countries : England, Italy, Germany, Czechoslovakia, France, Poland, Norway, Spain, Austria, Russia and Hungary, and in this programme, which was first broadcast on May 3 and 4, 1936, he has welded this medley of tunes into an hour's pot-pourri. An interesting feature of this broadcast is that the songs will be surfg in the language of their origin.
'A Festival of Folk Music ' mil be broadcast again tomorrow q,in the Regional programme ari.0.
