Julian performs a live broadcast for the Spanish section of the BBC Overseas Service (European Service).

Julian plays "Study in D minor" by Sor, "El Testament d' Amelia" by Llobet, "Study in A" by Tárrega and "Cádiz" by Albéniz.

Webmaster's note: This is notable because it is the first time a British artist performs Spanish compositions to the Spanish nation on the radio! Julian performs with the refurbished Ramírez guitar and gets paid an increased fee of three guineas for the performance. Julian had auditioned for this broadcast a few days prior and he felt that the sound of his Ramirez guitar helped him get chosen.

October 14, 1947

Julian performs in an ensemble of 4 guitars, 2 flutes, and 2 violas.

The ensemble pieces are for Eduardo Martínez Torner's La Cueva de Salamanca and La Cárcel de Sevilla.

Then he performed two solos, "Chaconne" by Bach and "Marizapalos".
