THE WESTERN STUDIO
Leader, FRANK THOMAS A SERENADE is properly an evening song, but it may be any piece of music meant for performance at night in the open air, and more particularly the music of a lover beneath the window of his adored. Serenades in these days, however, have lost much of their character, and are now played anywhere and at any time. The serenade in this programme are representative in style of many countries including Spain, Italy, Algeria, Argentine, and Hawaii, apart from V/ctor Herbert's Suite of Serenades which adds China, Cuba, and the Orient to this list.

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.
