Wembley Stewart MacPherson , who is giving each of the five commentaries this week on events in the European Championships, is a Canadian who left Canada only two years ago, and has quickly made his name as a first-rate commentator on almost every kind of sport. He has given many ice-hockey broadcasts, including those on the world championship at Prague in February. He gave the commentaries on the six days' bicycle race at Wembley in May, and also broadcast, in the Empire programmes, a monthly feature to Canada on ice hockey in Great Britain.

William Yeats Hurlstone was born at West Kensington in 1876 ; published his first compositions at the age of nine; studied at the Royal College of Music under Stanford, Dannreuther, Walford Davies , and other distinguished musicians; suffered all his short life from ill-health; and died in 1906. In those thirty years, however,
Hurlstone produced a small quantity of fine work-mostly chamber music -that amply justifies the inscription of Schubert's epitaph on his own tombstone: Music hath here entombed rich treasure but still fairer hopes.'
Of Hurlstohe's orchestral works, these fourteen Variations, first performed at a Patron's Fund Concert in 1904, are the most important. The influence of his favourite master, Brahms, is perceptible, and in the finale that of Richard Strauss.
Leo Weiner was born in Budapest in 1885 and studied during the years 1901-6 at the Landesakademie, where he later became a professor. Most of his compositions are in the form of chamber music, with which he has made a considerable name for hrnself. His String Qnartet in F sharp minor won the Coolidge Prize in 1921.

During this second broadcast in a series which follows the trek North-wards to Rhodesia of three men-Rhino, an old pioneer, Lawrence, a Rhodesian farmer, and Piet, a Cape agricultural. student who is going to work on the latter's farm-listeners will hear the mbira, a native instrument used as accompaniment to a solo voice. This evening's route will take the travellers past rocks on which bushmen's paintings hundreds of years old are to be found, in colour, painted by nobody knows whom ; and, as listeners will probably hear, there are some odd wayside adventures awaiting them.
