An actuality programme comparing the old and new ways of celebrating
Harvest Home in Wiltshire
Here is a contrast between the old and the new on the English farm-the old which could be so very good on such occasions as the harvest supper ; the new, which, though it is mechanised and colder, has its compensations.
A Wiltshire farmer (and incidentally a famous broadcaster and popular writer) in A. G. Street has reconstructed an old harvest supper. Listeners will hear something of the congenial atmosphere which prevailed after the harvest was gathered in-the camaraderie, the quaffing of the ale or cider, the good things there were to eat, the speeches that were made, the rollicking songs they sang. Real West Country voices will be heard in the programme.
Street himself will link up the old with the new, and another farmer from Wiltshire will tell listeners how in the last year or two he has rewarded his men when the ricks are built and the barns are full, with an outing to town, including a visit to the theatre.

Bob Crosby and his Orchestra
Playing in Chicago
(Relayed in collaboration with the Columbia Broadcasting System)
Brother of the celebrated Bing, Bob Crosby will lead his orchestra in tonight's broadcast from Chicago. Although only twenty-five years of age, and despite what he declares to be the great handicap of a famous brother, Bob Crosby has already risen high in a country where good dance bands are, so to speak, ten a penny. With his orchestra Crosby has made innumerable tours throughout the United States and played in most of the famous resorts. Included in his band are such figures as ' Nappy ' LaMare, one of the finest guitar players in the world ; Ray Baudac , who has been jazz drumming since 1916 ; and Marian Mann , famous throughout the United States as a band vocalist.
