Have you ever noticed how an old melody will stimulate the memory ? -how it will conjure up faces and scenes that had been forgotten-joys and sorrows long past but which are inseparably bound up with the music ? Does an old tune remind you of the circumstances in which you first heard it ? Here is a programme of old favourites built around this idea, and presented by Sandy Macpherson at the BBC Theatre Organ

A Newspaper Play for Broadcasting by Robert Barr
Cast and Ted, Sports Writer and Produced by Laurence Gilliam
This programme presents a picture of a marine disaster as seen through the eyes of a news editor seated at his desk. The programme is ingenious in construction, and covers every aspect of what is going on from the moment that the wreck is reported to the moment that the edition of the newspaper covering the story goes to press.

with John Rorke Betty Huntley-Wright
Webster Booth C. Denier Warren
The BBC Variety Orchestra
Leader, Frank Cantell
Conducted by Charles Shadwell and the BBC Revue Chorus
Compere, John Watt
' Songs from the Shows', a series first produced in 1931, like Tennyson's brook, goes on for ever. True it changed its title sometimes to ' Songs from the Films', giving listeners a radio version of The Three Little Pigs in 1934, which paved the way for the Silly Symphonies.
The series embraced modern shows and went back to Hullo, Ragtime, to the old Gaiety favourites, and even farther. It broke out in sub series-theatres, composers-and maintained its popularity to such an extent that it still goes on. Whatever shows may be chosen tonight listeners may be sure that such artists as Betty Huntley-Wright , Webster Booth, John Rorke , and C. Denier Warren will put the songs over.
