Oliver Whiting
On March 31, 1936, Germany's great new airship, the Hindenburg, took off on her first flight to South America. This afternoon Oliver Whiting, who will be familiar to many listeners for his talks on flying, will discuss the significance of German airship achievement, British plans for an Atlantic service, and the general question of ocean flying. Mr. Whiting was a passenger in the veteran Graf Zeppelin when she made her first visit to this country. He is also a personal friend of Dr. Eckener, her designer and commander.

A new presentation of popular music
A full orchestra of twenty alternating with A small string orchestra
Playing song hits of today and favourites of yesterday
The entire programme scored for orchestras and conducted by Van Phillips
Vocal refrains by Leslie Douglas
With this his last weekly broadcast Van Phillips will have put up' the unprecedented achievement of being on the air for twenty-six consecutive weeks with his Two Orchestras. His many listeners will wish him and his instrumentalists the best of luck. He has provided something novel in the way of entertainment, and his orchestras have put it over brilliantly. Van Phillips , by the way, did all the orchestration for the Cochran revue, Home and Beauty, and composed and conducted the music for the latest Ralph Lynn-Tom Walls film, -For Valour.
