Herta Gluckmann (contralto)
Eileen Ralph (pianoforte)
Herta Gluckmann , who was born near Breslau in Germany, comes of musical parents. Both her mother and her father were professional musicians. She studied in Vienna and Berlin.
She received her first engagement to broadcast when only sixteen years old and made such a success of it that it led to recitals in Breslau and later in Berlin and Vienna. There followed a tour of Holland in which she gave nine recitals and broadcast from Hilversum.
She has broadcast from that station once a year since. She has now made her home in England, and gave her first broadcast in this country in 1934. Herta Gluckmann specialises in German lieder singing, though she can sing in five languages, Italian, Spanish, French, German, and English.
Eileen Ralph was born in Perth,
Western Australia. She began her musical studies at an early age and -gained her Associated Board Scholarship at sixteen. At the Royal Academy of Music she won distinctions in piano, singing, and composition, including the Macfarren Gold Medal.
She gave her first recital at the Wigmore Hall in 1934, and has since broadcast a good many times, and has appeared at orchestral and other important concerts in the provinces.

The Foils Championship of Great
A commentary during the final pool by Charles de Beaumont from the Salle Bertrand
Although, in the nature of things, the fight described may not be the winning fight, it is hoped that Charles de Beaumont may be able to tell listeners the name of the championship winner, or at least of the probable championship winner, before the broadcast finishes. The Foils Championship of Great Britain was won last year and in 1937 by J. Emrys Lloyd , who in the latter year gave a talk on fencing.
Charles de Beaumont is secretary of the Amateur Fencing Association and captain of the British Olympic Fencing team. He was Epee champion of Great Britain in 1936, 1937, and 1938, and has given every commentary on fencing with one exception since this great sport went on the air.
