Wynford Reynolds was bom in Ebbw Vale, Monmouthshire, studied music as a child, and always wanted to play the violin. It was not until after the war that he took up music seriously. In 1922 he joined the original Queen's Hall Orchestra, and in 1929 he formed the Wynford Reynolds Octet, with which he began broadcasting in 1934.

The story of Rudolf Rassendyll , who, visiting Ruritania for the coronation of King Rudolf V, discovers himself mixed up in the court and political intrigues of that troubled little country, is now well under way.
In previous instalments you heard how Rassendyll, dining with the King and his two equerries in the forest hunting-lodge, saw King Rudolf succumb to drugged wine sent to him by his half-brother, the Duke Michael. Rudolf impersonated the King at the coronation, and, on returning to the hunting-lodge, found that the monarch had vanished. Together with Colonel Sapt and Fritz von Tarlenheim, Rudolf decides to beat Black Michael at his own game.
In today's instalment you will hear how Rudolf meets Antoinette de Mauban at the summer house, and Rupert Hentzau will appear for the first time in the story.

Great Britain's Greeting to the New York World's Fair
A programme arranged by D. G. Bridson at the close of which
The Rt. Hon. Viscount Halifax,
K.G., G.C.S.I., G.C.I.E. will speak
Today, St. George's Day, is a fitting occasion for Great Britain to send her greeting to the New York World's Fair, with a picture of the country from which it comes. Not only Americans, but home listeners as well, should be interested in this composite picture of Great Britain.
The programme is ambitious in character. It will travel from district to district of the British Isles, covering industrial England and ' Bonnie Scotland ', the pastoral West, and the ship-building North-East, the Britain of legend and tradition, and the Britain of today.
The broadcasts will be illustrated with music typical of the districts covered, and the voice of Britain, in its diversity of dialogue, will be heard.

An appeal on behalf of THE ALLOTMENT GARDENS FOR THE UNEMPLOYED CENTRAL COMMITTEE by ARNOLD ROWNTREE
(Not to be broadcast by Scottish National)
The Allotments Committee of the Society of Friends started a scheme ten years ago for helping unemployed allotment holders to plant their gardens. Last season they provided supplies for over 112,000 unemployed men at a cost of £50,659. A similar scheme for this season is estimated to cost about the same amount. Of this, over 126,000 was . provided by the men themselves, and the balance, about £24,000, has to be found by the committee. The Government offers £ for £ on all subscriptions received up to £12,000. Up to date the committee have collected £6,500 in subscriptions this season, leaving £5,500 yet required to meet their liabilities for the season.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Arnold Rowntree , Esq., [address removed].
