RADIO REVIEW Bad Land-Lines Wreck Singers' Reputations [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 15 September 1949
Bad Land-Lines Wreck Singers' Reputations Take a tug at your hosiery ABC, or you soon will be having trouble with the overseas 'artists you persist in rushing up and down Australia like, a roller blind. This fact has been brought home to listeners whom publicity attracted to the broadcast con certs of such singers as Elisa beth Schwarzkopf (thank good ness, she's marrying a man by the name of Legge), and Joan Hammond. -Because of their recordings, these voices are famous all over the world. And deservedly so. But, after hearing broadcasts of their concerts, listeners can be excused for thinking of them either as the veriest novices, or old-stagers warbling through their second childhood. I heard Elisabeth Schwarzkopf's first or second Australian concert. It' came, I think, from the Bris bane Town Hall. The voice was muffled and uninspiring, and I began to imagine Miss Schwarz kopf as an "old duck" wh6se re cordings were made in her hey day, this Australian tour being her "swan song....
Why Only One Victorian in M.Q. Final? [Newspaper Article] — Frankston Standard — 15 September 1949
Why Only One Victorian in M.Q. Final ? At the risk of laying myself open to the charge of paroch ialism,',I must deliver a swift one' to Hector Crawford's. "Mobil Quest," the grand fiinal of which is broadcast this week. (Unfortunately, this paper will have gone to press: before the broadcast, which prevents me from covering the grand final as I would like to. But we'll be list ening). The complaint is that it'is bad showmanship to produce a "Mobil Quest" grand final with only one Victorian singer among the six left tb fight for the big money. It could be worse than bad showmanship - it could be the result of bad judging. Can you imagine a grand final of Eddie Balmer's "Parade" .with only one Victorian competitor? Can" you imagine a San Aria grand final 'with only one Vic toriaq in the, line-up? . I can't. And neither can Hec tor Crawford; Dave Worrall, nor the manager of the Vacuum Oil .Company. Neither can you, dear ,reader, nor any other reasonably ;intelligent listener. *. Not-....
