A native of Mohilev Pod, principal city of Bessarahia, MichaelofT has done a very great deal towards making the music and people of that picturesque and colourful part of the world known to this country.
As a youngster Michacloff took an active part in his school orchestra. He studied the violin till he was fourteen, and later took up the cello, which he studied in Odessa. He later spent three years of musical study in Berlin, where he became musical adviser and arranger to a large music publishing company. He first broadcast with his orchestra of fourteen players in August, 1937, and since then has been regularly on the air.

A dramatic account of the lives and working conditions of seamen in British ships the world over
Produced by Laurence Gilliam
Here is a feature programme which promises to be outstanding in its class. The author, A. L. Lloyd , is a working seaman who, as a result of hearing the production last August of the Columbia Workshop radio show, Job to be done, decided that he would like to do the same thing for the British Mercantile Marine. Invited by Laurence Gilliam to prepare a script, he got down to work and within a short time had presented the producer with a practically flawless broadcast script.
There is both punch and poetry in this sound picture of Britain's 16,000 merchant seamen at work, the whole being centred in the person of Seaman Jack Smith of the merchantman Matapan, bound from Cardiff to the West Indies with a cargo of canned goods and cotton frocks. Throughout the broadcast the seaman speaks. He speaks in the voice of Devon, of Wales, of Scotland, of East London, and of Yorkshire, for the men who go down to the sea in British ships, come from every corner of the country, from every class, and from every type of environment.
To present a comprehensive picture of merchant shipping, with all that it implies, is an almost Herculean task, yet A. L. Lloyd has done it. Whether it is in the feeling of an oil-tanker sweltering down to Ahadan, in the atmosphere of the Madeira docks, fogged with coal dust, or in the tinkling music of a Panama seamen's ' dive ', the Mercantile Marine will come right across tonight.
In the concluding words of the broadcast, ' keeping Great Britain maritime nation number one is a hell of a big job ', and here is the story of how it is done.
Stop! For the Sixth Season and Hundred and Seventy-Seventh time we silence the mighty roar of London, and from its great crowds we bring to the microphone some of the interesting people who are In Town Tonight
