Popular song is the theme that runs through today's selection of records by Jeremy Siepmann. There are pieces written under its influence. such as the Goldberg Variations, The Beggar's Opera, and Brahms's Academic Festival Overture. And conversely, there are pieces which more or less passed into popular ownership - likeSchubert'sDerLindenbaum. Plus a complete performance of Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet: records

A short story by JOHN CHEEVER
Read by David Buck
' They are Americans. Nothing they can do will quite conceal the touching ridiculousness, the clumsiness of the traveller. The father is a tall, young man. a little stooped, with curly hair and fine white teeth. His wife is pretty, and they have two sons. Both boys are armed with plastic machine-guns which were recently mailed to them by their grandparents.' Producer MAURICE LEITCH
