The Valve Set Concert Party.
The Station Orchestra
"The Valve Set has been overhauled, the batteries recharged.
The wander plug has wandered home, the aerial's been enlarged.
You'll hear them sing some solos and some duets up to date.
In fact they'll do all sorts of things but never oscillate.
There's Zincite and Molybdenite-one bright and one pathetic
And stories told-some tall, some short-by Galena (synthetic).
The various other crystals to their feelings will give vent
A funny combination but they're funny with intent!
At nine o'clock or thereabouts-without the least deception
The Station Band at our demand will give you your reception:-

March, "Great Big David" Lotter
Suite, "Gabrielle" Rosse
(1) Pizzicato; (2) Minuet; (3) Valse Romance; (4) Patrol.
Menuet .................... Moszkowski
Selection, "II Trovatore" ...... Verdi

A half an hour of music light and then our merry men, Sir,
Will try to tune to get the moon and waggle their condenser.
And thus we'll let them carry on and amplify our views.
Until we switch on '2LO' and hear the current news".
