Ⓓ A serial reading from
' Moby Dick ' by Geoffrey Tandy
The first instalment of the new serial tells how the man Ishmael decides to go to sea again and chooses to ship in a whaler. He is particular to sail from Nantucket, the oldest of the whaling ports on the American coast, and on his way there he gets stuck in New Bedford. While he is ready to share a bed with someone, he is in no way prepared for what he finds, a harpooner, tattooed all over and smoking a tomahawk pipe with which he climbs into bed. Ishmael, terrified, starts screaming out for the landlord, and the harpooner — Queequeg — equally alarmed, threatens to kill him. But the landlord comes in time, and this instalment closes with the two sleeping peacefully.

' How Does it Strike You? '—1
Percy Scholes , B.Mus.
Dr. Percy Scholes 's series of talks on ' Modern Music ' is intended to show the listener what values there are in various types of contemporary music. Nevertheless, instead of telling you what he considers to be good or bad, he will leave you to form your own opinion on the sound principle of ' Every man his own critic '. Some of the music he will present he does not care very much about, but at least he ' understands ' it, so far as the structure and the composer's general aims are concerned. Dr. Scholes is anxious that listeners should also ' understand ' it and then praise or condemn as they think fit. In other words, Dr. Scholes wants to awaken a taste for exploration.
The music will be presented chiefly on gramophone records that as yet have not been heard by the public, for they were specially made for Dr. Scholes.
