BROADCASTING. (Conducted by, M. Wilson. Radio Stores, Ware-street, Fairfield). MUSIC TEACHER'S REQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929
BROADCASTING. (Conducted by«M. Wilsou. Radio Stores, Ware-street, Fairfield). MUSIC TEACHER'S REQUEST. An unusual request was receivcJ by the manager of broadcasting sta tion 2 P C from a music teacher in the suburbs. The latter, a lady, suggested that the broadcasting com pany to install a microphone in her studio for a fortnight in order to radiate programmes of her own choice together with her explana tions of her own work. She insists that she must be free to make up her own programmes and she states that she does not ask to have her name mentioned. She is content to re main anonymous, as she wishes to arouse public opinion and to cducale the musical taste of the public. The New South Wales Broadcasting Com pany appears to be a little puzzled over this request, which is clearly im possible. They are "considering" the matter.
RADIO IN SUNDAY SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929
RADIO IN SUNDAY SCHOOL. There is a Sunday school at Ryde where the children are like all other children, and at times are in clined to be a little unruly. Many expedients have been tried in var ious places in the past to keep the at tention of the juveniles on their work; it is a veiy old problem and one which never seems' satisfactor ily settled. At Ryde, however, the directors of the Sunday School have found that the most successful way of solving the problem has been to introduce a radio receiving set and to allow the youngsters to listen in. The regular service commences at 3 o'clock but the children are in their places at 2.30 o'clock and the set is tuned in to 2 F C or 2 B L. The or gan recitals of Mr.- Nicholas Robins are as popular as anything.
BOOSTING CANBERRA BY RADIO. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929
BOOSTING CANBERRA BY RADIO. That a statement dealing with Canberra be sent to every A class broadcasting station in Australia and New Zealand, and that a covering letter asking that the statement be put over the air, was a motion adopt ed at last meeting of the Canberra Tourist, Association. It was agreed that Mr. Sayers and Dr. Watson should draw up a suit able broadcasting statement, which would later be referred to the gen eral committee for approval.
CHILDREN'S RADIO. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929
CHILDREN'S RADIO. The Sydney broadcasting station which hitherto has not held a chil dren's session on Sundays, is now providing for this service. The re arrangement of the programme makes an opening at 2.30 on Sunday afternoons at which time therefore station 2 F C will commence a half hour mainly of interest to children. Mr. A. S. Cochrane (the Hello Man), who knowse from long experience what young people like, will take a leading part in this session and the help of the boys' department of the Y.M.C.A. and of similar organisa tions will be utilised.
LONG DISTANCE RADIO. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929
LONG DISTANCE RADIO. A resident of Vancouver, British Columbia, who has been receiving the Sydney broadcasting station 2 B L, writes to the station manager: "I wish some of our stations would listen in on your programmes; thcy might then be able to give us some thing worth while. The lady who sang "Roses of Picardy" surely has 'It.' Believe me, I surely enjoyed her singing." Though six thousand miles away, this listeners says he prefers the Sydney station to those of Canada and U.S.A. He says a few uncompli mentary things about all the stations close handy-proving that on the other side of the Pacific, as on this side, it is always the stations farth est away that are the best.
SYDNEY BY NIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929
SYDNEY BY NIGHT. A novelty is to be introduced into the programmes of the Sydney broadcasting station 2 B L with the New Year in the form of a "Sydney by Night" series of items. The idea is to visit various parts of the city and to describe over the air what is tak ing place. For instance a trip will be made to the Sydney Domain, and probably the announcer will have something of interest to say regard ing the "dossers" who make their beds on the green turf and manage to sleep mote or less comfortably with the aid of a newspaper or two in place of blankets. Of course it is fine weather for it, otherwise the story would be tragic indeed. If a big fire happens to break out ^t night the broadcasting announcer will be there, and in a dozen other, ways the aid of radio will be invoked to give listeners at a distance a sketch of events happening in the great city. There is a pronounced technical diff iculty about broadcasts of this 'des^ cription but it .te believed this can be overebtae.<...
RADIO ON THE MOTOR BUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929
RADIO ON THE MOTOR BUS. The first radio-equipped coach in Australia now runs between Sydney and Goulburn. The receiver is a five valve, the aerial being hidden in the ceiling of the coach and earther to the frame of the chassis. A loud speaker is used, and on the ran to anil from Goulburn, a distance of 140 miles each way, passengers are entertained with whatever is on the air. The test match descriptions perhaps have been the most popular items yet radiated. It is understood that there was considerable engin eering difficulty in carrying out this installation, but so far the set is giving great satisfaction. It is like ly that similar installations will be made on other bus routes.
INVALID CHEERED BY RADIO. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 5 January 1929
INVALID CHEERED BY RADIO. A radio call which was greatly ap preciated was made by Mr. M. A. Ferry, the "special turf commission er" of broadcasting station 2FC, Sydney, during the broadcasting of a racing description. It seems that a fine young man sustained an acci dent in a football match 2& years ago and since that time has been confined to the hospital at Murru rundi with his spine dislocated. Though helpless, he manages to keep up his spirits, finding that radio is a great comfort. A friend wrote to Mr. Ferry that the young man en joyed more than anything the radi ated descriptions of the horse races and he asked if some "cheerio" mes sage could be sent him when the next race" meeting was being described. Accordingly, Mr. Ferry spoke to the lad just before describing a race. He gave him a few words of cheer, told him not to be down hearted and to keep on looking at the bright side of things. It was quite a simple thing to do, but the glad message has had a stim ulating ...
Electricity in the Home. FOR THE SICK ROOM. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 12 January 1929
Electricity in the Home. FOR TH7 SICK ROOM. An inexpensive and handy appli ance to be found in every electric home and in many which are only partially equipped electrically, is the electric heating pad. The use of heat for the relief 'of pain is an ex pedient as old as the human racc. Only since electricity has become a household friend have we had tfie advantage of a dry, continuous heat which is absolutely under the control of the user.' A switch regulates the heat of the electric pad to suit re quirements and once the required temperature is obtained this degree of heat is maintained to as long as wanted, until the current is switched off. In hospitals and in the sick rooms, electric heating pads arc becoming very popular. They arc very econ omical in use of current and being soft and flexible they can be wound round a limb or placed in direct con tact with the part of the body where you feel it most."
THE ELECTRIC WAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 12 January 1929
THE ELECTRIC WAV. A remarkable change is coming over the work of the modern house wife as the result of up-to-date elec trical appliances. Much of the drud gery has been eliminated. In the days when domestic help could be engaged for a few shillings a week, the need of such equipment was not so greatly felt. But times have changed; this is the day of the electric vacuum cleaner; floor polish er, cooking range, washing machine, refrigerator, bath-heater or hot water supply system. Toast is made on the breakfast table with an electric toaster, the clectric kettle and hot water-jug are standard equipment. The electric iron is of course in universal use, and the dish washer is beginning to make its value appreciated. Contrast the leisure time at the disposal of the housewife with elec tricity to do the work, with the one who continues in the old way with the attendant laborious and manual drudgery. One is able to dress neat ly and be cool while doing her house work; the other cannot avo...
AMERICAN RADIISTS LIKE SYDNEY STATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 12 January 1929
AMERICAN RADIISTS LIKE SYDNEY STATIONS. A good number of letters arc reaching the Sydney broadcasting stations just now from America, where listeners seem to &lt;be hearing our radio quite well as their winter closes in. One man, Nils Eadhc, writes a very fine letter in which he says he has difficulty in distinguish ing between stations 2F G and 2M E. They both sound alike and they use the same wave length. No wonder he cannot tell one fi'vm another because they arc the ssme station, 2 M E being the cal! sifcii for 2 F C when transmitting on short vaves. "It is with a peculiar feeling that one listens to xvnrds FpoV.cn from such a distance," '/rites Mr. RadV. ''Even mrli prosaic waiter as stock reports am? weather forecasts become interesting. It brings me back to the days over 20 years ago when I spent a month's ttoliday in your beau!i:'l city rf Sidney."
RADIO FOR THE NEIGHBOURS [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 12 January 1929
RADIO FOR THE NEIGHBOURS In a letter to broadcasting station 2 B L, Sydney, a woman at Marrick ville indicates a simple way in .which, it is possible sometimes to give pleas ure to others. The house adjoining hers is a'rest home and in the morn ings her husband carried the loud speaker on to the verandah so that not only the inmates of the house but the convalescents next door can hear the programmes as they are broadcast. She says they enjoy par ticularly the, church services and they are so grateful that she thinks it only right to let the broadcasting company know. MORE THAN LIKELY. "Do you realise, young man," said the parson to an unconverted sinner, "when you retire to rest at night you may be called before dawn." "Why, of course I do," responded the sinher, "I am the father of .a. thrte-weekB-old VtHg."

The result was a heavy mail which has now been analysed. Thirty-two persons considered that sopranos were the least satisfactory feature, 33 thought ntusica! pro gramme the best. Opinion on church services was nearly equal with a slight majority in favor of them. Twenty nine expressed definite dis like of piano solos and 26 consider ed the children's sessions the best feature of the programmes; 36 plac ed the dance items at the head of the poll. A prize of a guinea was offer ed for the most interesting letter in connection with the competition. The winner was Mr. J.

THE HOUR OF FEACE. 9 TO 10 a,m. BROADCASTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 12 January 1929
THE HOUR OF FEACE. 9 TO 10 cut). BROADCASTS. The Quiet Hour or Hour of Peace, as the;broadcasting session ofjstation 2 B L, Sydney between 9 and 10 a.m. daily is known, is certainly appreci ated by many women-for whom primarily it is intended. The fact is recognised that most women have a very busy time first thing in the morning and by 9 o'clock they arc glad of a rest, if only they can take it. So the announcer usually starts out by telling his hearers to sit down. "Please sit down and rest for a while," he says. "If you must do something let it be a bit of sewing or mending, but do sit down while I play some quiet music and read you a story." A woman living on a farm wrote a few days ago to the New South Wales Broadcasting Station. "I often think of the first few years I spent out here ten years ago and what a difference your early morn ing session would then have made. But there are compensations in every job and after milking cows, cutting school lunches, getting breakfast and ...
FASHION TO-DAY THE MODE IN A SUITCASE. FLOWERS AND CHIFFON ORIENTAL IN STYLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 12 January 1929
FASHION TO-DAY THE MODE IN A SUITCASE. (By Barbara Winslow.) FLOWERS AND CHIFFON Are in vogue for evenings now, the flowers applied in the form of a shoulder strap. The other shoulder strap, on this frock is of belt. Many diaphanous frocks have glitter trimmings. Note the irregu lar hemline, and the train-like shoul der scarf of self fabric. ORIENTAL IN STYLE. Is this new tunic frock of printed silk. Bands of trimming in a harm onising shade give a slimming effect to the model. Brooch at the waist line is repeated in the turban, and the heavy ncklace is in keeping with the eastern style of the frock. This is essentially a season of visits, varying in length from a week end to a fortnight. And Fashion has made a note of it. Not only have the designers taken it into consideration, but luggage makers have co-operated with them to such an extent that it is now pos sible to carry a really complete ward robe in a single suitcase. . . One of the average size fitted cases will carry as many...
RADIO THE TYRANT. AS HEARD IN CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 12 January 1929
RADIO THE TYRANT. AS HEARD IN CANADA. What Australian Radiists -would suffer if our broadcasting stations wore truly Americanised is indicat ed by a recent Sydney visitor to Tor onto, Canada. There are five, "radio" stations in Toronto which between them broad cast continuously from 7 a.m. until 1 a.m. the following morning. "On my first morning," he says, "I was wakened by a gentleman at the Central Y.M.C.A ordering me to do gctting-up exorcises. This lasted 20 minutes. "I did not get up, but sleep p was impossible because a minister then gave me 20 minutes of family wor ship. "There was then another 20 min utes, before a knock on the door her alded a cup of tea. At 10 o'clock my hostess had to listen-in to the shop ping news, which was followed by an nouncements from Toronto Radio Club and news bulletins. The re mainder of the day was given over to continuous broadcasts by local firms of gramophone and pianola re cords, concerts and jazz staff. Super health companies, shoe-shine s...
