A glimpse of preparations for the broadcast from the Argyle Theatre,
Birkenhead, this evening
Today, for the first time, listeners are to hear a rehearsal in the morning of a Variety show that is being broadcast the same night. The theatre chosen is the music-hall that is one of the most popular as well as one of. the smallest theatres in the North of England — the Argyle, Birkenhead, from which broadcasts have been given regularly for years. It should make tonight's broadcast all the more interesting that listeners have been given a chance of hearing Jimmie Hunter and his Brighton Follies preparing for their ordeal.

Conductor, Leslie Heward from the Town Hall, Birmingham
Brahms's Variations on a Theme by Haydn is one of the greatest works of its kind, showing a sense of beauty and proportion and an ingenuity of treatment that remain as fresh and expressive today as when it was first performed in 1873. The climax of the work is the finale, which is a magnificent passacaglia, the ground or repeated bass of which is derived from the opening Haydn theme (the ' Chorale St. Antonii ').

This play shows how he dealt with all the difficulties until the first Eddystone Lighthouse stood firm to show 'Light Ahead'. This is Maisie Herring's first programme for the West of England Children's Hour, although she has written several for Northern Ireland.

from The Argyle Theatre, Birkenhead

As a change from its usual broadcasts of Variety, the Argyle, Birkenhead is presenting Jimmie Hunter and his Brighton Follies in a snappy half-hour programme, It will be remembered that this popular concert party were on the air last summer in 'Shows from the Seaside'.
Tonight's company is headed by Jimmie Hunter himself. This debonair compere, brilliant raconteur, and leading light of the Follies has brought them to the Argyle for a short season. Dove Bruce, a comedian well known in Scotland, but new to English listeners, is the principal fun-maker, assisted by cheeky little Mae Wynne. There will be vocal numbers by Dia Jones, the Welsh tenor, and Frances Seymour gay Scottish airs by Jimmie Hunter's Young Ladies; accordion solos by Bobbie Watson; and last but not least, more comedy by Bill Brewer.
