Gretta Don (Soprano).
Wallace Cunningham (Entertainer).

The musical event of the week is the visit, on Wednesday night, of Professor Tovey, of Edinburgh University, when he is to play his own Pianoforte Concerto with the Station Symphony Orchestra. As this is Mendelssohn's birthday, the programme will begin with his "Midsummer Night's Dream" music. Another interesting item is the "Theme and Six Diversions" of Edward German, and Professor Tovey is to conduct the Orchestra in the Haydn Symphony in C Minor.

Listeners will be pleased to note that on Sunday afternoon Mr. Robert Watson, the well-known Glasgow baritone, is to sing the programme that had to be cancelled some time ago on account of illness. The particular feature is the group of six songs from Arthur Somervell's delightful Song Cycle "A Shropshire Lad." The remainder of the programme is of popular items by tho Station Orchestra, a number of which are included in response to listeners' requests.

Oh, Come With Old Khayyam.
The Beethoven Pianoforte Series will be followed at 8.30 p.m. by a light programme of orchestral music with the title of "Oh, Come with Old Khayyam," which includes such assorted items as a Weber Overture, an arrangement of Massenet's Thais and a selection from the comparatively recent musical comedy, Afgar.
On Tuesday evening, after an hour of opera from London, a French feature will be presented to Glasgow listeners. Miss Kathleen Garscadden (soprano), and Mr. Harry Carpenter (violinist), are the soloists and the Station Repertory Company present a play, The Astrologer, by Charles W. Hopper.
Miss Gretta Don (soprano) will, on Thursday evening, sing a number of Schubert's Lieder, and a series of songs from Shakespeare's plays. In the Scottish Regimental Series, on the same night, the Royal Scots Fusiliers will appear.
