From time to time in the short history of Scottish broadcasting the composer and the conductor have been given opportunities to project their art by means of the microphone to the farthest bounds of Scotland. Tonight a new series begins which will be contributed to by David Stephen , W. B. Moonie , Francis G. Scott , Cedric Thorpe Davie, Robin Orr , Guy Warrack , and Ian Whyte , though not necessarily in this order. While the form and content of the programmes will necessarily differ, they will prove a good object lesson to the pessimists who think that Scotland is no longer making good music. The series, too, will act as a balance to that broadcast under the title ' Music from the Scottish Past '.
Erik Chisholm , tonight's conductor, is well known to wireless listeners already and to Glasgow people in particular for his operatic productions, the last of which was Berlioz's Benvenuto Cellini.
