Cicely Hoye (soprano)
Edwin Benbow (pianoforte) Cicely Hoye has been broadcasting since Savoy Hill days, both singing and playing the piano. It was as pianist that she won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music, taking a number of prizes but, curiously, never one for her singing, which was her second study. It was with a piano recital that she made her debut at Wigmore Hall.
Edwin Benbow , who for four years held an open piano scholarship at the Royal College of Music, has been Piano Professor and Examiner there since 1929. He hat been broadcasting regularly since 1926, and has played at three Proms.
From 1933 to 1935 he was assistant chorus-master and pianist on the BBC staff. In May this year he gave a first performance of Alec Rowley 's piano concerto to the Empire.
He has been associated this season with the Ballet Rambert, whose most signal production was that of Lady into Fox, at the Mercury Theatre, London. He played at every performance.
His wife, Janet Powell , soprano, is a well-known broadcaster.

5.0 'ONCE UPON A TIME' Fairy-tale fantasies from Grimm, Andersen, and others
No. 1 - 'The shoes that were danced into holes' Dialogue and music by Henry Reed The music played by a section of The BBC Northern Orchestra, conducted by Henry Reed ' Once upon a Time ' will consist of radio versions of fairy tales by the Grimms, Hans Andersen, and others. This first programme is based on the Grimms' story of the twelve princesses who secretly danced their shoes to pieces every night, and of the poor soldier who, with the aid of a witch, discovered their secret and was consequently able to claim the youngest and fairest as his bride. Like Henry Reed's popular ÃÂsop Fable programmes, these programmes have much in common with Walt Disney's Silly Symphonies. (From North)

at the BBC Theatre Organ
Stanley Tudor, twenty-eight years of age, was bom in Stoke-on-Trent, played the church organ before he was nine, won many prizes for piano playing and began his cinema career fourteen years ago in the days of silent films, as pianist at the Capitol, Henley. When he was sixteen he joined Gaumont-British, being appointed organist at the Hippodrome, Stoke. After three years at Stoke, he toured their circuit before being appointed to the Gaumont Palace, Hammersmith. During his four years there, he took part in the film Britannia of Billingsgate.
With the opening of the Gaumont
Theatre, Manchester, in October, 1935, Tudor went up there, and his performances on the large four-manual organ at this theatre became -and still are-a great feature of the programmes. His signature tune, ' Singing in the , is dedicated to the three weeks' downpour which greeted his arrival in Manchester.
This will be his seventh recital on the BBC Theatre Organ.
