Laelia Finneberg (soprano)
Few people realise that Laelia Finneberg is British. Although born in Liverpool, she spent most of her early life in Dublin, where she had her first lessons at the piano at the age of four. Later Madame Finneberg studied at the Royal Irish Academy of Music, but only with the idea of becoming an amateur. At seventeen she obtained a post in the Bank of Ireland, but continued her musical studies. After winning great success at the Dublin Musical Festival she was advised to take up music professionally, so gave up her post with the Bank and went to Vienna to study. Since that time Madame Finneberg has appeared with many of the leading orchestras in Europe.

An appeal on behalf of THE COUNCIL FOR THE PROMOTION OF OCCUPATIONAL INDUSTRIES AMONG
THE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED
(P.O.I.P.H.), by VERNON BARTLETT
Once before, fifteen -months ago, Vernon Bartlett appealed for P.O.I.P.H. (The Council for the Promotion of Occupational Industries among the Physically Handicapped), but unfortunately a violent thunderstorm throughout the whole of the broadcast made reception more than difficult. So this evening Mr. Bartlett is again appealing on 'behalf of this charity.
The Society was founded four years ago to meet the need of London's disabled adults, over school-leaving age, who are too handicapped to compete in the ordinary industrial market or to benefit by instruction at residential schools or workshops.
Those who can manage to get there come to the training centres, and the others are taught in their homes by a visiting staff. The output is marketed through the P.O.I.P.H. Show-room at the address below and at exhibitions and sales. During the fifteen months that have elapsed since the last broadcast, the work has made considerable progress.
In October a further development will take place: the institution of a work-seeking bureau for disabled adults in the London district.

The programme arranged and conducted by Stanford Robinson
Stanford Robinson's 'Old Ballad Concerts' have been among the most popular of all light-music broadcasts. Such composers and lyric-writers as Stephen Adams , J. L. Molloy, Fred E. Weatherly, Edward Lockton, and Guy d'Hardelot played on the average Englishman's love of the robust, the humorous, the pretty, and the unashamedly sentimental, with a skill almost comparable with that of Dickens himself.
