Okay after a long vacation we're back with tow hours and forty six minutes more of brunch fun. And it's because we
decided to conclude just to keep things simple A Small Town In Germany. Plus we'll begin a new lark series. This
one The TV Lark and it's before Navy Lark Series 5. We'll hear the first episode entitled Opening Night don't worry
John Lingard. Great sound quality. It's from Jan 25 1963 and before we put the British history book away for a bit
it's time for Sceptred Isle and the first look at The AGe of Revolutions from 1760 to 1792. We'll be discussing the
end of the seven years war. Don't forget two chapters of The Secret Advasary as well.

This week brunch is short. It's because next week we'll be starting what I'm affectionately refering to as Thirty Weeks of Lark ... or so. So that we're caught up on Navy Lark entirely. Thanks to the producer for getting us TV Lark. So this week it's Sceptred Isle A Small Town in Germany and two chapters of Secret Adversary. We apologize for the lateness but with friends of the magic and the producer's bday we've been taking some time off. We're back however as of Saturday August 24 depending on where you live.

Okay this week's brunch is long. Two hours and forty four minutes and it's thanks to Ray Noble. Yet I hope you enjoy it. We begin by welcoming an old friend. As most of you know we've been chronicling the well loved commedy The Navy Lark. This was one of Fred's favorites and we begin the fifth series by going back to April 5 of 1963 and listen to First Day Out of Dock. We then listen to The Ray Noble Story. This was not a documentary made for BBC but rather Capital Radio and we'll hear Ray that wonderful charming band leader who made an impression both here in the United States ... he did lead the band during the Burns and Allen early years and over in Britain. Then it's back to Germany and episode 3 of A Small Town in Germany. This is well dramatized and we're certainly hoping you're enjoying it. We end with two chapters of Secret Adversary. Enjoy.
