Mrs. Alice Fullerton
Mrs. Fullerton is repeating a talk she gave last October which met with wide response from listeners.
The speaker lived for some months in the wilds of Iran collecting plants for the British Museum. She had many adventures and experiences, one of the strangest of which was when Persian villagers, thinking that so curious a woman must know a lot about medicine, clamoured to be cured of their ailments.

The Harry Engleman Quintet has been broadcasting regularly now for about three years, though Engleman himself has had a longer radio history. He has broadcast frequently since 1931, when he first appeared with some of his own compositions in the Children's Hour.
Engleman comes of a musical family. His father, Joseph Engle man, was a composer, and his grandfather a trombonist in the old Birmingham Grand Theatre Orchestra. Apart from his work with the Quintet-which incidentally topped the bill at the London Palladium in 1937, and again on December 4 of last year-Engleman broadcasts with the Aston Hippodrome Orchestra, and with the Midland Revue Orchestra, as pianist.

Fernando Germani with The BBC Orchestra
Leader, Paul Beard
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Fernando Germani was born in Rome twenty-seven years ago. Practically self-taught, he began as a pianist, but later became interested in the organ with such success that eventually he was asked to join the staff of the Royal Academy of Santa Cecilia, and of the Royal Conservatoire of Music at Rome.
His international reputation was the result of a chance meeting in Rome with Dr. Alexander Russell , Concert Director of the Wanamaker Organisation of New York and Philadelphia. A series of American and Canadian tours followed, and then upon Lynwood Farnam's death, Germani was appointed chief of the Organ Department of the Curtis Institute, Philadelphia.
