Although twenty-five years ago the music of Grieg enjoyed great popularity and he was generally considered to be one of the great figures of the second half of the nineteenth century, except for a handful of his works, such as the ' Peer Gynt ' Suite, his music is unjustly ignored today. One of the most neglected branches of Grieg's art is his songs, a number of which may well bear comparison with those of the finest of the great German Lieder composers. The group to be heard this afternoon will give some small idea of the many treasures waiting to be unearthed by the enterprising sincer.

A study of Fans and some of their Fancies
Designed by Gale Pedrick Produced by John Cheatle
This diverting programme treats, not with unkind satire, the growth and influence of hero-worship — today called fan-worship-which is the penalty of fame. It will recall the first organised fan-club, the ' Keen-Order-of-Wallerites ', known as the ' K.O.W.'s members of which pledged themselves to turn up in force at every performance by the great romantic actor, Lewis Waller ; and the opposition club, the ' True-to-Trees ', who supported Beerbohm Tree.
It will deal with fan mail ; the extraordinary loyalty to Rudolph Valentino that still exists, although many years have lapsed since his death ; and the length to which the fan will go in adoration of a particular star. It will touch on the enthusiasm of the famous gallery first-nighters'; the Theatrical Garden Party, for which Gerald du Maurier did so much, and at which playgoers may rub shoulders with their idols ; the picture-postcard era ; and the emotional excitement, almost amount-in to hysteria, surrounding the modern film star.
For the first time in the history of radio an analysis of the value of publicity will be given on the air. Gale Pedrick , who was responsible for the recent programme, ' Ladies and Gentlemen of the Chorus ', has made a study of fan-worship in all its forms and has a unique collection of fan letters written to celebrated theatrical and sporting people.
