SIR,—May I most strongly dissent from H. Tudor Edmond's dogmatic

assertion that broadcasting serious music in lie mornings or after- noons is a waste? There must be many, like myself retired lecturers, musicians, &c. too aged for war work or to sit up late for evening programmes, who listen with avidity to every note of serious music before 9 p.m., and ask for more and yet more.

B.B.C. musical directors please note.
