Today Yascha Krein , Russian-born musician, will come to the microphone with his Gypsy Orchestra for one of his bi-monthly broadcasts. His orchestra, which consists of three violins, cello, bass, piano, piano-accordion, szimbalon, is noted for the gay light-hearted character of its music.
Yascha Krein himself has been playing in this country for thirty-four years, and has played in the old Queen's Hall Orchestra under Sir Henry Wood , has led a Viennese Orchestra in Scotland, and also led the Russian Imperial Orchestra which played at a well-known West-End hotel from 1910 to 1921. It was here that he discovered that English people are extremely fond of Hungarian Gypsy music and Russian traditional music, of which he has made a special study.

Conductor, Herbert Lodge from the Town Hall, Worthing
When Herbert Lodge was invited to direct the Worthing Municipal Orchestra for the winter season four years ago, music in the town was languishing in the doldrums. Today, as Mr. Lodge is about to enter on another season, Worthing is one of the most flourishing musical centres on the South Coast.
For his first engagement he played classical concerts with an orchestra of only eighteen performers. Such was the success and popularity achieved that in this short space of time, Worthing can boast now of a Symphony Orchestra of fifty.
During this winter Herbert Lodge is planning a scheme to encourage children to play orchestral instruments. There is already a juvenile orchestra in Worthing.
Since he became the youngest member of the Royal Opera Orchestra at Covent Garden in 1913, Herbert Lodge has followed a musical career.
. He was, incidentally, one of the first people to broadcast from Savoy Hill, when, at that time, he was connected with various small orchestras.

' Nature the Builder'
Dr. M. Black is lecturer in Geology at Cambridge and has studied his subject extensively both in England and in the U.S.A.
He will describe the origins of new land masses, mountains and so on, and show how the rubbish which filled the basins of seas in centuries gone by slowly buckled up to form mountain chains and new stretches of land. Various substances such as limestone, sandstone, and slate will be discussed, and it will be shown how the rocks that make up the British countryside were formed by such processes as coral building and glacial deposit.
