The BBC Variety Orchestra
Conducted by Charles Shadwell
Few young broadcasters can have had so successful a career as Audrey Samson , the first artist you will hear in tonight's ' Monday at Seven '. She began entertaining on the air while she was still at school, and she has been broadcasting regularly for the last four years, and is now only sixteen. Last July she left school with a radio reputation which secured her engagements at once in Variety and in West-End cabaret to sing her own songs at the piano.
Her versatility is remarkable. She has sung songs both gay and serious at the microphone, has broadcast as a solo pianist, and last September took part in Lance Sieveking 's radio play, The Peaslake Crash. It is more than possible that she will shortly be engaged as vocalist and pianist in one of the leading dance bands.

Leader, David Wise
Conductor, Anthony Collins
Anthony Collins comes from Hastings, where he began his orchestral experience as a viola player in the Municipal Orchestra. During the war Mr. Collins was in Salonika with Gustav Hoist, under whom he afterwards studied composition at the Royal College of Music. For some time he was principal viola of the London Symphony Orchestra, a post which he has now forsaken in order to devote himself to conducting. To this end he formed the London Mozart Orchestra, which consists of most of the principals and best players of the London Symphony Orchestra. Although this orchestra specialises in the lesser-known works of Mozart, at the same time it adds variety to its programmes by including interesting and appropriate works by other distinguished composers of, or around, the period.
