with Hildegarde, Rudi Grasl, The Metaxa Girls (by arrangement with Meta Kaye)
In addition to the appearance of the Metaxa Girls, this evening there will be the first television performance at Alexandra Palace of Hildegarde. This world-famous American singer was discovered by Gus Edwards, and made several appearances with him. Before taking up singing she was a pianist in a cinema in Milwaukee, and toured in a road show. She came to London about three years ago and conquered it almost overnight. She had a principal part, theatre-goers will remember, in "Seeing Stars". Since then she has sung in theatres and cabarets all over Europe. In America she was a great success in a television show transmitted from Radio City.

Twenty-year-old Carolyn Marsh is an American, and started as a child prodigy, playing the piano and violin. Then she turned her attention to singing, as a soprano, but after an operation on her throat she became a contralto. In the States she worked for some time with Rudy Vallee, and then came over to England - this is her first visit - to appear with Harry Roy in "All Alight at Oxford Circus" at the London Palladium. She is now appearing in "Laughter Over London" at the Victoria Palace, where she is the only girl principal.

with Olive Groves, Soprano, and Felicity Andreae, Dancer.
In addition to Felicity Andreae, the well-known dancer, this evening's programme is notable for the reappearance of Olive Groves. At the age of fifteen she was busy teaching the piano. Her time was divided between studying at the Royal Academy of Music, where she afterwards gained a scholarship, and giving lessons at a Franciscan convent.
Later on she had her naturally beautiful voice trained, and was picked out in Savoy Hill days to sing in Winners. Listeners with long memories will remember that her first number was "She'd a Hole in her Stocking". Since then her success on the air and in the theatre has been continuous. Her broadcasts in "Songs from the Shows" were particularly popular. But the proudest moment of her life, she says, was when she hailed a taxi and the driver without waiting for an order, said "BBC, Miss Groves?"
Edward Cooper originally worked in his father's flour mill, but, not liking business life in general and flour in particular, he left to join a small touring company. His new job was rather different. He was stage manager, actor, and producer, and occasionally he helped things along with a piano. Since then he has partnered Douglas Byng, has had an act with Queenie Leonard and Effie Atherton, and has appeared in several Chariot revues. Recently he gained many new admirers for his entertaining in non-stop revues.
