'March'
H. E. "Piggott
'March it is the next month
So cold and hard and drear, Prepare we now for harvest By brewing of strong beer.
God grant that we who labour May see the reaping come,
And drink and dance and welcome The happy harvest home.'
The third of twelve monthly talks on West Country folk songs, arranged seasonally according to their subject matter. The illustrations will be sung by Doreen Greenwood and Frederick Harvey.
One song which Frederick Harvey is to sing, ' John Barleycorn ', is really a harvest song, but Mr. Piggott explains that it was always recalled at the time of year when the barley was made into beer. " ,

' Psnlmus Hungaricus'
(Koddly)
Kodaly's Psalmus Hungaricus is a setting of Psalm 53, which* Mendelssohn set in his Hymn of Praise.
Composed in 1923 for a festival which was part of the celebrations of the fiftieth anniversary of the union of Buda and Pest as one city, is ranks as probably the most important work that has come from this gifted composer.

The London Federation of Boys' Clubs Finals
A commentary on some of the fights by Dan Titchencr from the Royal Albert Hall
Listeners will be able to feel something of the tense atmosphere in the Royal Albert Hall tonight when boys from various London clubs cheer on their representatives in bout after bout with the gloves on in the square ring. These boys' clubs are a training school for some of the best amateur and professional boxing in the country. Did not Bombardier Billy Wells graduate from Broad Street and Harry Mizler from St. George's? This big event for the boys is an annual affair promoted in recent years to the Royal Albert Hall , which is filled to overflowing.
Dan Titchener gave his first broadcast, on Bermondsey boxing in January. He knows the game inside out and should give a vivid account of the exciting scene.
