Joan Easdale
On November 9, 1937, was broadcast a play by Joan Easdale round the life of Mrs. Isabella Mary Beeton and the story of how the famous cookery book came to be written.
Today Joan Easdale is coming to the microphone again to tell listeners how she gathered material for her play. It was to mean a four years' search, but she found it a very exciting one and well worth while. She was only twenty at the time.

A Recital by John Wills (pianoforte) Charles Koechlin, one of Faure's favourite pupils, has an intensely personal style that gives him a place apart in French music. The five sonatinas written for his children and published in 1918 are characteristic in their simplicity, for Koechlin's basic ideas are always simple (in the best sense), although he is sometimes tempted to wrap them up in complicated parcels.
