Robert Segar spent his student days in Paris and knows the city's cafe life as it really is-not as the tourist sees it.
He is interested particularly in the cafes that ' reflect the difference be.tween the Frenchman and ourselves '
-the cafes of Montmartre, where Bohemianism is now commercially organised, hut where you can still ' sing and throw shoes across the room and spill your neighbour's drink for fun ', the pleasant cafes of the shopping quarter with their awnings and wicker chairs and little tables, and the cafes of Montparnasse, harbouring a more prosperous Bohemianism than that of Montmartre.

played by Valerie Hamilton French piano music has a style and charm of its own and it owes very little, or nothing, to the influences of the great German composers of the nineteenth century. It has created its own tradition, which harks back to the time of Rameau and Couperin. This evening's programme is representative of modern French music, the most considerable composer being Debussy, whose influence on his contemporaries and successors, both as a player and as a composer, has been of far-reaching importance. Debussy was essentially a miniaturist, and one of the most attractive features of his music is its purity and delicacy of texture. His principal concern was the suggesting of vague and subtle emotional moods and the painting of half-lights and exquisite shades of colour. To this end Debussy resorted to the use of a highly original system of harmony based on the two whole tone scales which provides that pungent flavour, or rather ' atmosphere ', so characteristic of his music.

Billy Thorburn will be remembered as ' Uncle Jazz ' by listeners who tuned in to 2LO in the days of Savoy Hill. One of his most vivid memories is of a foggy day, ten thousand feet up in the clouds, when he played the piano in the world's first aerial broadcast, from 2LO, in the first twenty-two seater.
