E7
Not often do listeners have the chance of hearing a spy talk about his peculiar job. The chance is given them today. The speaker is necessarily modest about his identity. He will broadcast as ' E7 '. But this unromantic appellation does not lessen the romance of the stories he has to tell. He started his international career as a Russian spy in Japan during the war of 1904. Since that time he has lived like a millionaire and starved like a tramp, has been shot at, stabbed, and flogged. At one period of his life he was actually engaged by a foreign Power to act as a spy in England. He will tell listeners all about that, too. He is surely one of the most remarkable characters ever to come to the microphone.

Olive Kavann and Hugh French with The Rae Jenkins Trio
At the piano, Wilfrid Parry
Produced by Ernest Longstaffe
This is the first of a series of tea-time broadcasts under this refreshing title, which will take place every Monday from 4 to 4.30 p.m., and will take the form of the presentation of the very latest song and ballad hits straight from the pens of the most popular writers.
The entertainment, produced by Ernest Longstaffe , will be introduced by Olive Kavann and Hugh French , who will also act as comperes and sustain the singing rôles throughout. The Rae Jenkins Trio will provide the musical ensembles and accompaniments. This show should prove yet another success for the deviser and producer of ' Palace of Varieties '.
