John Mathewson is one of the most popular baritones in Scotland. He began his career as a public singer on leaving the army in 1919 and has appeared on the concert platform in most of the principal towns in Scotland and the North of England. Mr. Mathewson is notable as an interpreter of Border songs, a number of which he is including in this programme. Among these, and perhaps the most exacting, is ' The Flowers o' the Forest', so closely identified with the disaster of Flodden Field.

St. Giles' Cathedral Boys' Club first met eight years ago in a small room in the Lawnmarket, Edinburgh, and four years later acquired its present premises. It is the first boys' club in Scotland to have a chapel of its own, and it is from this chapel that the usual afternoon service is being broadcast this afternoon. Once a rat-infested gymnasium, the chapel has been transformed by the boys themselves into a place of beauty. The Chaplain of the Club is the Very Rev. Charles L. Warr, D.D., and the President, Sir lain Colquhoun of Luss, Bart., D.S.O.
