Arnold Bax
Introduced by PERCY SCHOLES and HARRIET COHEN (Pianoforte)
BAX is a Celt, and his music has often the dreamy reflectiveness of his race. Yet, like other Celts, he rouses himself at times, shakes off his introspection and shows himself active and excited. In all his moods his best interpreter, so far as his piano music is concerned, is Harriet Cohen. It appeals to her ; she sees far into the composer's mind and can make us see with her. And so, with Harriet Cohen to play and the B.B.C.'s Music Critic to say a word or two of quiet introduction to each piece, there is a good chance that many of us will knit up a new friendship, and one that will last us our lives.

A Farcical Adventure by STUART READY
Presented by STUART VINDEN
The scene is the general-waiting room of a railway station at ten o'clock on a winter's night. ' The Woman ' is a person who earns her daily bread by taking in washing. She wanders into the room in a disconsolate manner carrying a large bag of shopping, and has under her arm a bundle of dirty linen. ' 'The Swell' enters. He is a retired military man, and one of the old ' die-hard ' type.
