Seven Songs with words by Robert
1 I have loved flowers that fade. 2 I praise the tender flower. 3 My spirit sang all day. 4 Clear and Gentle Stream. 5 Nightingales. 6 Haste on, my joys! 7 Wherefore tonight so full of care?
Three short elegies with words by William Drummond
1 Life a right shadow is. 2 The world a hunting is. 3 This life, which seems so fair
Gerald Finzi was born in London in 1901. He studied first under Dr. Bairstow, of York Minster, and then under R. 0. Morris. With the notable exception of a violin concerto Finzi has devoted his creative gifts chiefly to vocal music. A number of important song cycles, such as those to be heard this afternoon, have come from his pen and have enhanced his reputation as a composer.

' Hair Up-Hair Down '
A discussion on the- year's fashion
Alison Settle and Geoffrey Swaffield
The year that is just drawing to a close has been notable for quick and startling changes in the fashion world, and women, obedient to the whims of this capricious dictator, have found themselves chopping and changing almost month by month.
This afternoon Alison Settle, well-known broadcaster on fashion matters, is going to review some of the fashions that have gone before, and probably forecast a few of those that are to come.
Geoffrey Swaffield is a well-known
London hat designer, and claims to be one of the first to introduce the present Edwardian rage. At the moment hair is well and truly ' up ', but, Swaffield tells us, a change may soon be expected, and he is designing all his spring hats for hair worn down

Although Frank Walker and his Miniature Orchestra gave their first broadcast in the summer of 1938, Walker has been a radio favourite for many years. With his Octet, which he formed in 1927, he appeared frequently before the microphone in programmes of the best light music. A feature of these broadcasts was Walker's solo cello playing. The Octet was, by the way, the first combination to play in the studios at Broadcasting House, when it was used for testing acoustics.
Walker, who started studying the violin at the age of five, has played in cinemas, conducted symphony orchestra, and played his cello for the Diaghilev Russian Ballet at Covent Garden.
