Past Ten O'clock, and a Rainy Night
The title is written in four different ways (all incorrect) by F.C.L. Bosman (1928), possibly based on the particular Cape Town programme used as a source - these titles are Past 10 o'Clock and a Rainy Night (p.200), Past ten o'Clock, or A Rainy Night (p201), Past ten o'clock and a Rainy Night (p. 207) and Past ten o'clock and A Rainy Night (p.215).
