Next Sunday Dudley Savage is going back to his home town, Penzance, to give a recital on the organ of the Ritz Cinema, with the Penzance Choral Society.
Since it was announced in the Radio Times that he is only eighteen years old, his fan-mail has doubled itself. He constantly receives letters from different parts of the Empire, especially from Cornish folk who have settled overseas, telling him that their thoughts turn to home when they hear his signature tune, the Cornish 'Floral Dance'.

Listeners to the two previous programmes in this series will by now be used to surprises, and The Awful Reason of the Vicar's Visit provides one as startling as its predecessors.
Members of the Club of Queer Trades are all people who follow 'unlikely' callings, and the profession dealt with this evening is one of the strangest of them all. When Gilbert Swinburne , just setting out to dinner, received a call from a 'bald-browed, white-haired, white-whiskered, old vicar of a flappy and floppy type' he little dreamed of the reason for this visit.
The predicament in which the Vicar of Chuntsey found himself, and about which he tells his host, is one of tragi-comedy at its best, as may be realised of a situation in which a respectable old clergyman finds himself forcibly dressed up as an old woman for the purpose of participating in a crime.
Needless to say, the awful reason for the vicar's visit is not all that it appears to be, as Gilbert Swinburne learns long after he has missed his dinner appointment
