H. E. Piggott and Doreen Greenwood
In no part of England have the music and folk songs of the old Village life been more carefully recorded and preserved than in the West. Many of these songs are closely linked with the seasons-often indeed they are identified with the activities of a particular month.
H. E. Piggott will be recalling some of these traditional songs on or near the first day of every month throughout the year, and each talk in the series will be illustrated by elections from the songs.
In this first broadcast the singer is Doreen Greenwood , accompanied at the piano by Mr. Piggott himself.

This popular orchestra, which Harry Davidson took over from Joseph Muscant in 1934 has been continuously broadcasting for eight and a half years. It is sad to think that this is the last broadcast from the Commodore Theatre, but Davidson is retaining his band. He is taking it on tour and it is hoped that it will be heard by listeners many times again.
