Go to Bridges at 7.0 & with Miss Fass we go to B.B.C. Studio at Waterloo Bridge, where at 8.0 F.B. conducts a concert. Frank Titterton with a magnificent voice sings to F.B. Songs - Adoration & Love went a-r. - heavenly things, & the Prize song.* Leonora 3 (taken slower than usual - with gain in effect) Borodin Symph. no. 2 (not particularly impressing as a work but the playing was, in sports delightful) & an exuberant perf of Rimsky's Wedding March from Coq D'ore Back to 4. B.G's for supper until 11.45.
