at the Organ of the Gaumont
John Bee is organist at the Gaumont Palace, Worcester, and this evening he plays from Birmingham as a guest artist. He was appointed a church organist at the age of twelve, and three years later he became organist of a large Methodist church in Lincoln. A lighter side of his war experiences was his concert-party work with Maurice Besly and Milton Hayes in a German prison camp. Later he was solo pianist and accompanist for the Lincoln Musical Society, and it was as a pianist that he broadcast from the old Nottingham studio.
An eye-witness account by E. Moore Darling
Kington is in Herefordshire not far from the borders of Radnorshire, and its sheep fairs and horse fairs attract buyers and breeders from a large area on the Welsh borders. The town is supposed to have taken its name from Edward the Confessor.
E. Moore Darling , who is to give an eye-witness account of the fair this evening, is the agricultural correspondent of The Birmingham Post and Chairman of the Agricultural Wages Committee for Shropshire.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a

understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
