Adolf Jensen (1837-1879), had a strong individuality and a delicate and poetic muse. The best of his raany charming songs and pieces for piano duet deserve to be heard frequently. For instance, there is the magnificent but lengthy song-cycle ' Gaudeamus', which for wit, humour and picturesque music would be 'difficult to equal in its kind.
The present group of his pieces will give listeners a good idea of his charming, lyrical style.

Middleton too has been ' in other gardens'.

A short-wave relay of what afternoon listeners in America are hearing this evening
Devised by Igor Vinogradoff and H. L. Morrow
This programme is based on the story of Brighton in its infancy and boisterous youth. It starts with the remote fishing village where a few invalids gathered to bathe and drink sea-water and milk, and ends with the rollicking splendours of Regency days, and the arrival of the first railway train
Production by H. L. Morrow
Brighthelmstone, of course, is one of the old names of Brighton-or, rather, one of the forty-five, variants of the Saxon name for it. The more modern ' Brighton' came into use early in the eighteenth century but did not finally displace the other name for quite a century.
Brighthelmstone began its rise to fame in the middle of the eighteenth century, thanks to an eminent physician - Dr. Richard Russell Â—- who began sending his patients there for the salt-water cure. He is commemorated in some verses by one of his sons, beginning :
( Brighthelmstone was confess'd by all
T'abound with females fair,
But more so since fam'd Russell has Prefer'd the water there.'
Then thirty years or so later the Prince of Wales, afterwards George IV, discovered the place and after that the history of Brighton is more or less the history of the private life of the First Gentleman in Europe.

Fernando Germani (organ)
Fernando Germani was born in Rome twenty-six years ago. Practically self-taught, he began as a _ pianist, but later became interested in the organ with such success that eventually he was asked to join the staff of the Royal Academy of Santa Cecilia, and of the Royal Conservatoire of Music, at Rome.
His international reputation was the result of a chance meeting in Rome with Dr. Alexander Russell , Concert Director of the Wanamaker Organisation of New York and Philadelphia. A series of American and Canadian tours followed, and then upon Lynwood Farnam's death, at the age of twenty-five, Germani was appointed chief of the Organ Department of the Curtis Institute, Philadelphia.
