a short story by Graham Sutton read by the author
Graham Sutton , who is to repeat his short story, ' The Man who Broke the Needle', is both author and reader of many North Country stories that have been heard on the air ; among them a sheep-farming story, ' Paying Guest'; a fell-walking story, ' A Hot Day on Bow-fell ' ; and a Solway story, ' Wanted for Murder ', which he broadcast last Christmas. He is a native of Cumberland, and fell-walking and rock-climbing are his favourite pursuits. His stories are drawn mainly from experience, ' Paying Guest', for instance, being suggested by an incident in his boyhood and by first-hand experience of sheep-dipping. He ' vetted ' the dialect and coached the cast of D'ye Ken John Peel , broadcast in October, 1936.

The Band of the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, was formed in 1813, the number of players being fourteen. For the first fifty years of its existence it was organised and paid direct by the War Office, whilst other Army bands were purely regimental concerns.
The first bandmaster of whom there is any definite record was Thomas Sullivan , the father of Sir Arthur Sullivan , who first became acquainted with instruments and music under his father's tuition at
Sandhurst. The band, which today consists of the normal personnel of a military band, is honouring this connection today by opening its programme with two Sullivan excerpts.

Sinigaglia has long been enthusiastic in the collection and propagation of the folk music of his native Piedmont; it may well have been Dvorak, whose pupil he was, who infected him with an enthusiasm like his own. One of his most important compositions is his suite ' Piedmont' which is based on Piedmontese folk dances and songs. It is interesting to note that Toscanini sponsored this work in Italy and America.
