Mr. DAVID SANDBERG and Mr. PERCY COLLICK
Mr. David Sandberg is a railway fireman from the north of Sweden : Mr. Percy Collick does the same job on an English line. Tonight they will discuss the differences in the wages, hours of work, and training between the two callings in the two countries. Individual first-hand accounts such as these give a vivid impression of the day-to-day conditions of life in foreign lands. They have an authentic, undoctored air and the tang of truth ; moreover, they make first-class broadcasting of their kind.

Serenade

National Programme London

ERNEST LUSH (Pianoforte)
THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Wind Instruments of Section D)
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
The word Serenade is derived from the Italian, and means 'evening song.' Music in the form of a serenade was originally supposed to be sung or played at night in the open air, and as one would expect, such music must be of a light character; therefore nothing could be more apt than the adaptation of dance forms. Consequently, the orchestral serenade developed into a kind of suite with movements mostly dance-like in character and form. Mozart's Serenade in C minor for wind instruments is a good example of the early style of Serenade. Debussy's elegant and charming Suite Bergamasque may be considered a modem and romantic development of serenade, while in the Little Threepenny Bit Music for Brass orchestra, which is taken from the incidental music in Kurt Weill 's jazz opera, we have an up-to-date serenade based on the popular jazz rhythms of today.
