Listeners will welcome a new radio play by the author of Uncle Arthur, considered by many the most distinctive and original radio play of 1937. Again the most appealing character is a girl. But this time she is not waiting for something to happen, but hoping that something never will.
'The engines - I know 'em all, all three of 'em... The coaches - proper musty smell they've got...
I've shut the doors ever since I was a little thing... Yes, I love our railway; and that's why I hate young Jake.'
Jake is her brother-in-law; drives the Dunworthy bus and stands for progress. He knows the fifty-year-old railway is doomed, and doesn't forget to rub it in. It closes down; Ethel leaves school; and out of her small wages and tips as a waitress at a road-house buys one of the engines for a pound. Out of that situation Pudney gets as many laughs as he got with Uncle Arthur.
Once again special organ music themes have been composed by Jack Clarke, will be played by Reginald Foort, and recorded in advance. Uncle Arthur, by the way, has been produced by NBC in America and is likely to be revived there. Ethel appeared as a short story in the January number of The London Mercury. Pudney likes writing like that. A story first, a radio play afterwards. He says that that method shows him just what to do.

Beethoven himself conducted the first performance of the Seventh Symphony on December 8, 1813. The concert was in aid of wounded
Austrian soldiers. In the same programme was the ' Battle' Symphony, in which was introduced Maelzel's mechanical instrument, the Panharmonicon. Playing in the orchestra were many famous musicians and composers, Romberg, Spohr, Mayseder, and Dragonetti were amongst the strings, Hummel and Meyerbeer (who always came in after the beat) played the drums, Moscheles had the cymbals, and Salieri kept time and order in the percussion department.

Alexander Spendyarov (born at Kharkov in 1871) was a pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov and his music reflects many of the characteristics of his master's. The ' Crimean Sketches', though an early composition, are an excellent example of his work. Spendyarov has always shown an affection for the Crimea, ' the Russian Riviera', where he lived for a number of years.
