A Variety Entertainment
Organised by Wee Georgie Wood , for the Lest We Forget Association (Kingston Branch), given by several well-known Variety artists
Compere, Wee Georgie Wood
Broadcast from the Kingston Empire
Though Wee Georgie Wood at one time dropped the ' Wee', his admirers all over the world persisted in calling him Wee Georgie Wood ) his original stage name. And so he bowed to their wishes.
Both on the stage and on the air
Dolly Harmer is known as his long-suffering but loving mother. Wee Georgie gets an idea, and from it, with her help, is evolved each of the domestic episodes. Wee Georgie has travelled all over the world—seven tours to the United States and Canada, two to Australia, and one to New Zealand.
This afternoon listeners are to hear the Variety entertainment he has organised at the Kingston Empire again this year for the benefit of ex-Service men, who themselves will constitute the audience.

A Radio Magazine introduced by F. H. Grisewood
The second in the second series of programmes of new and unknown artists from all parts of the British Isles
What has become Carroll Levis's life-work in searching for amateur talent, and bringing it before the public, came about almost by accident. In the days when he was broadcasting in Canada he introduced from time to time new artists to the radio, and one day was inspired to invite any member of the audience to come up and show what they could do. This grew into an amateur hour in Canada and he received an offer to go to the States. As he was a British subject, however, this was impossible. He sailed for England at the end of 1935 and a year later started his first series of broadcasts. Today's broadcast is the second in the new series.
He discovers talent in all parts of the British Isles, and in the last two years has heard thirty thousand people. Of the amateur acts he has introduced, forty-five have turned professional. Not one of them is earning less than £5 a week, and one is getting as much as £25. He runs two shows presenting his radio discoveries and gives contracts for not less than a year to those who are really good. But he advises everyone, unless exceptionally talented, to stick to his job.
