A programme from his works in celebration of the 177th anniversary of his birth.
This programme in commemoration of Scotland's national poet was announced in our issue of last Friday, and it was then explained that it would consist mainly of songs chosen by Professor H.J.C. Grierson as examples of the diversity of Burns's genius as a song writer.
Owing to the general rearrangement of programmes this week, the time of the opening of this programme has been altered, and the total duration of the programme has been slightly curtailed. It remains, however, a broadcast that will appeal equally to the Scot who already has a keen affection for the personality of Robert Burns, and to the listener who has never made personal acquaintance with "Tam o' Shanter" and with the many lovely songs that Burns wrote.
