BERNARD SHORE (Viola)
ANGUS MORRISON (Pianoforte)
Sonata for Viola and Pianoforte Charles Koechlin
As listeners are by now well aware,
Bernard Shore is leader of the violas in the B.B.C. Orchestra, and, as is taken almost for granted with B.B.C. leaders, is.a soloist of a high order, Actually, Shore began his career as an organist, gaming an Exhibition at the Royal College of Music in 1914. But wounded in the right hand in the War, he had to give the organ up and began studying the viola, with Lionel Tertis as his chief master. Then he took to chamber music, and, after years of that, to solo work, with Tertis's magnificent example to profit by and emulate. He made his first appearance as a soloist at the Promenades in 1922, giving the first performance of the solo part in Gordon Jacob 's Viola Concetto, and later in Vaughan Williams 's Flos Campi at a B.B.C. Symphony Concert. In the years since then, Shore has been constantly increasing his repertory, and at his concerts in London, in Amsterdam last year, and in most British concert halls of note, he has been heard in all the most important works for the viola.
Angus Morrison is also well known to listeners, both as pianist and composer. His The Lake Isle of Innisfree, often broadcast, is one of the most charming songs of recent years.

For thirty minutes three skilled artists of the cabaret world are in command of the microphone.

Ginger Croom-Johnson is a young British composer; his "sweet music" - €”Man of My Dreams, Tango Lady, Thank you for the Flowers were his - €”and syncopated piano playing have made him a favourite among the "soft lights".

' The Economist in the Witness-Box '

National Programme London

Commander STEPHEN KING-HALL and Mr. N. F. HALL (Head of the Department of Economics,
University College, London)
After their recent brilliant exposition of the gold standard, those experts in explanation probe further into the causes of the economic discontents. Mr. N. F. Hall speaks with the weight of an economic expert, never yielding to the temptation to over-simplify. His questioner, Commander King-Hall , has an unfailing flair for sensing the listener's difficulties, and framing just the question to clear them up. Apart from the knowledge they must have dispensed, these two speakers have made a notable contribution to the technique of explanation by broadcasting.
