Hugo Rignold , who has been playing at the London Casino with his orchestra for the last eighteen months, was bom in England and educated in Canada. From there he won a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music at the age of sixteen. He returned to England and studied at the Academy for three years, during which time he played the Tchaikovsky concerto under Sir Henry Wood at Queen's Hall. On leaving the Academy he was spotted by Jack Hylton and played at the Kit-Kat. He stayed with Jack Hylton 's organisations for five years, conducted Jack Harris 's Grosvenor House band for a year, and became musical director for Lew Leslie 's production Blackbirds, and then for Transatlantic Rhythm.

Conducted by SIR HENRY J. WOOD
Part 1
God Save the King
Part 2 of this concert will be broadcast in the Regional programme at 9.45
Although the opening concert of the Promenade season will be broadcast in full, it will naturally be impossible to give every concert equally generous treatment. The types of programme broadcast nowadays are too numerous to allow one of the two alternative wavelengths to be devoted to a full programme of serious music each night. But though only part of each concert can be broadcast, musical listeners will be consoled to know that each excerpt will be at least equal in length to a normal symphony concert.

An appeal for hospital beds for orchestral musicians by Sir Henry J. Wood
In October Sir Henry Wood will complete his fiftieth year of conducting and of service to British music. His Jubilee is to be celebrated by a Jubilee Concert in the Royal Albert Hall on Wednesday, October 5, at which he himself will conduct. Rachmaninoff is specially coming from abroad to play. Vaughan Williams has composed a work for the occasion ; and many artists as well as our principal orchestras and choirs are giving their services. The proceeds of the concert will be used to endow beds in London hospitals for orchestral musicians.
Tonight, on this first night of his
44th season of Proms, Sir Henry Wood will speak on the air for the first time-to appeal to those who may be unable to attend the concert, but would like to show their appreciation of Sir Henry and their practical sympathy with this scheme.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to the [address removed]

Hal Kemp and his Orchestra from the Hotel Astor Roof, New York City (in collaboration with the Columbia Broadcasting System)
Hal Kemp , who is tonight giving his postponed broadcast in this series, must have headed as many polls for popularity as any band-leader in the States. He was born in Marion, Alabama, in 1905, and formed his first band while still in his teens. In 1922 he entered the University of North Carolina, and organised an orchestra there, winning as a prize at a college band concert a trip to Europe and an engagement at the Piccadilly Hotel.
Soon after his return to the States he formed the orchestra which was to win him fame. They were featured weekly on the Columbia coast-to-coast network for one year and were rated as one of the most attractive programmes on the air.
