including an eye-witness account of Wolverhampton Wanderers v.
(Football League), by E. A. Eden and ' A Day's Cycling ' by W. Oakley
E. A. Eden , secretary of the Birmingham County Football Association, has done most of the broadcasts on First League football for the Midlands during the last two years.
W. Oakley is a well-known cycling journalist, who made his radio debut in 1936. He was responsible for the ' New Country ' series. He has been councillor to the C.T.C. since 1927 and was the first president of the South Staffordshire District Association. Although he has toured in Normandy, Belgium, and the Black Forest, he still declares that Shropshire retains first place in his affections.
Listeners may remember that he broadcast a talk on a day's cycling on Bank Holiday, and the talk he will give this evening will be rather similar: he will come to the microphone without a script immediately after his tour.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
