We shall take you on a tour of some of the countries abroad, and - weather permitting-hope to give you some idea of what takes place in those lands on "All Fools' Day." We should warn listeners that there may be some slight hitches at first, owing to "depressions, anticyclones, and ridges of low pressure," but with the kind assistance of : Mary Ferrier (Soprano), Lewis Cowie (Baritone) and The Station Orchestra, we shall bridge the gaps.
At 9.30 we shall broadcast :
"A Mock Trial."
Presented by The Station Staff.
Imagine yourselves in a sitting-room in a house in a town which shall be nameless. A man, whom we shall call "Mr. X," is sitting in an expectant attitude in front of a home-made wireless set. Phones are on his head, and he is engaged in turning a variety of small and large knobs with both hands. A complacent smile is on his face, and from time to time he turns excitedly to a couple of friends who are sitting near him, also listening intently. The friends consist of a lady and gentleman, Mr. and Mrs. Fandango, who have been invited by Mr. X to hear what he can do in the way of "reaching out," and getting distant Stations, while the local Station, which we shall not name, is ON. They are comfortably settled down to "make a night of it."
