When Jack Leonardi was fourteen he played the violin to Huberman, who was impressed with his capabilities and wrote to Willy Hess at the Berlin Conservatoire asking him to receive Leonardi as a pupil. He studied for two years, then, after a series of solo engagements, toured the world as solo violinist with Terpsichore, the French dancer.
Until quite recently he was closely associated with Alfredo's Orchestra, and was heard many times in the National programme as its leader. He first broadcast with his own orchestra in the West of England programme in July, 1937.

Here is a chance for crooning fans to get together and hear their favourites matched one against the other in a grand national crooning bee. Representative teams of men and women crooners will be ranged opposite each other in the studio for half an hour. It is crooners on parade, and on their mettle!
Crooners Corner No.1, which was international in character, was broadcast in June this year, when Eddie Pola was compere. Dick Bentley who comperes the show this time, also looks after the 'You've asked for it' gramophone series.
All the crooners taking part in the broadcast tonight have been frequently heard over the air. Len Bermon was at one time with Henry Hall's BBC Dance Orchestra. Gene Crowley is resident singer and vocalist with Bram Martin, and Jack Cooper is with Jack Jackson's band. Among the others taking part Hughie Diamond, who sings with Jack Harris's band, is considered a rising star in his line, and Alice Mann is the wife of Billy Bissett, and sings with his band at the Cafe de Paris. Red-haired Helen McKay has often broadcast with dance bands, Pat Taylor has been heard with Jack Harris's band, and Ann Trevor with Maurice Winnick.

Prokofiev's opera, The Love for Three Oranges, if not actually comic opera, might at least be described as opera grotesque. Its story is the old story of The Prince Who Could Not Smile, with the addition of a fairy-tale curse ; the action, besides being full of magicians and sorcerers, incantations and transmogrifications, suggests a ballet rather than a straight opera.
The prologue reminds one of The
Beggar's Opera ; different factions try to put on the kind of performance they want, headed by the Tragicals, who ' run on from the right with bowed heads wildly waving umbrellas'. The day is won by the Drolls (Les Ridicules), but every now and again they have to beat off attacks by the Tragicals, who rush on in the middle of the action crying out for Tragedy.
