REGINALD FOORT at the BBC Theatre Organ
THE BBC VARIETY
Conducted by ERNEST LONGSTAFFE
The feature of tonight's Palace of Varieties is that Herman Darewski , among the greatest of musical show-men, is to broadcast as the Chairman. When Ernest Longstaffe nervously approached him, Darewski, with his love of doing anything new, rose to it with enthusiasm. He had known personally one of the last of the Chairmen at the London music-halls — a great character who had long retired. Darewski made a sketch of him from memory and faithfully copied it in his make-up, as shown on the cover of this week's RADIO Times. He has written all the material for the Chairman himself.
There is the usual excellent bill:
Georgie Harris , a very bright little man who made a name for himself in Hollywood, now making his radio debut in this country ; Rupert Hazell and Elsie Day, well known to listeners ; Suzette Tarri , a Longstaffe discovery, broadcasting a new monologue about lodgers in which' she takes the part of a maid-of-all-work at a boarding-house ; Hughes and Lever, who made their radio name in a ' Tea-Time Hour'; Francis Walker , a protege of Darewski's, who will be on the air for the first time ; Abe and Mawruss, a popular Hebrew act, who have broadcast in ' Music-Hall ' ; and, as a sparkling finish, ' Raggymemories ', headed by Peter Bernard , compere of Radiolympia in 1936, who has just returned from a tour of India.

A short story by A. E. Coppard read by Harcourt Williams
Few writers have begun their literary careers as late as A. E. Coppard , whose first book appeared in 1921, when he was forty-three. But this book, 'Adam and Eve and Pinch Me', at once attracted attention and announced the advent of a new, strikingly individual talent in the field of the English short story.
Coppard is a poet as well as a short-story writer and, quiet and restrained as his prose style is, it is unmistakably a poet's prose. As Ford Madox Ford has put it, ' Mr. Coppard is almost the first English writer to get into English prose the peculiar quality of English lyric poetry.'
