A commentary on the Lincolnshire
Handicap by R. C. Lyle at the Grand Stand
Richard North and J. Lawson Topham (race-reader) approximately at the Four-Furlong Post from the Carholme, Lincoln
No big race is more eagerly looked forward to than the Lincolnshire Handicap. It marks the start of another season ; the whispered tip may win or disappoint, and in the next few weeks last year's form will be turned inside out in the glorious uncertainty of the game.
The ' Lincoln ', one of the most open of races, is run over the straight mile on the Carholme, and those who have been lucky enough to ' pick the first leg of the double ' will feel very happy when the Grand National comes along in two daye' time.

The Fol-de-Rols first broadcast in 1934, and have been heard on the air regularly ever since both in studio broadcasts and in outside broadcasts from their various concert parties. This year for the first time they are giving a weekly series, commencing tonight, with various features continuing from week to week, the whole material being written by Greatrex Newman. After this week there will be an afternoon transmission each Wednesday as well as an evening broadcast.
There are eight members of the radio company-five men and three girls— with nine vocalists in addition. The artists that listeners are to hear will split up and join their respective Fol-de-Rols parties at Llandudno, Hastings, and Sandown.
Among famous artists who have appeared with the Fol-de-Rols are the Western Brothers, Elsie and Doris Waters , Beryl Orde , Mario de Pietro, and Marjery Wyn. Arthur Askey and Richard Murdoch appeared with them last season at Hastings. Leonard Henry will be starring with them at Hastings this summer.
An entertaining dialogue on concert party in general and the Fol-de-Rols in particular between George Royle , founder of the Fol-de-Rols. and Harry S. Pepper , will be found on page 13.
