BROADCASTING. COUNTRY WOMEN. Radio a Boon. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 19 January 1929
BROADCASTING. (Conducted by M. Wilson, Radio Stores, Ware-street, Fairfield), COUNTRY WOMEN. Radio i Boon. Radio ib exorcising an influence on the lives of women in tie country which is likely to hove a far reach ing effect on the problem of mnlfinjf rural life sufficiently congenial to en courage more people to settle and remain on tahe land. So far as women are concerned, radio has "come" in the country, When the men ere away from the homestead, working in the fields, radio is rendering a service to coun try women greater than can be real ised perhaps, even by city women who also listen in while they are carrying out the daily routine of work. Interesting as they are to one living, say, in a suburb of Syd ney, the special talks broadcast for women daily by all the broadcasting stations are doubly welcome to those who by reason of distance rarely have an opportunity of visiting the city shops or places of entertain ment It would probably surprise many to hear of the things which ap...
THE POOR FISH. Caught by Radio. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 19 January 1929
THE POOR FISH. Caught by Radio. Radio has been proved a great thing for a lot of folks, but what has it done for the poor fish? The skipper of the fishing boat As-., cendant answers the question in a letter received by a broadcasting station in Aberdeen. He writes: "I went to sea on Monday, and caught nothing. So wag laying out. I re ceived your 4 o'clock broadcast' which said that good fishing was got fifty miles S.E. of Stronsay, so I pro ceeded there and vtas lucky enough to get a shot of ninety crans of very fine herrings, which sold for 39/3 per cr&n." When one can catch almost £200 worth of fish by radio nobody- can «lfcim thai radio does not pay the man who listens In. And after all what does It matter to the fish? If he hadn't .been caught by the trawler. he would hftVe bVeti ettfett *bV eotae ofchel- fiah.
PORTABLE RADIO. Favoured by Picnickers. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 19 January 1929
PORTABLE RADIO. Favoured by Pieitickcri. The sound of a portable radio re ceiver bringing music to a party of picnickers at Mono. Vale, was a re minder of the increasing practicc of carrying a radio set as part of mot oring equipment. Within 200 miles of a broadcast ing station, and sometimes for long er distances, portable sets arc won derfully good company. They bring in music and entertainment while the tourists arc having their meals in the open-air, and when a party stops to camp for the night a port able receiver is an excellent help in providing a pleasant evening. Kapid strides have been made in the design of components and acces sories, and although the general de sign of portable rceivcrs has not changed a great deal, so great have been the improvements in details that to-day receivers are made which are completely self-contained ani readily portable, and at the same time have a performance which com pares very favorably with that of other types of recovers working on high...
SAVE OUR SOULS. Not Radio's Mission. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 19 January 1929
SAVE OUR SOULS. Mot Ridio'i Miction. Most listeners to the brodcasting stations want entertainment pure and simple. Their ideas of enter tainment might run from lecturcs on abstruse subjects and heavy clas sical music to nigger comic songs and jazz, but practically all are united in a desire to avoid anything in the way of propaganda. This point of view was put clearly in a letter written by a Sydney dentist to station 2UW: "I want to thank you for yesterday's programme. Apparently you neither wish to save our souls nor give us muck. Your perfomances ai-2 thor oughly appreciated; your announ cer's voice comes over remarkably well and his manner is even better."
RADIO OUTBACK. An English Impression. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 19 January 1929
RADIO OUTBACK. An English Impression. Radio listeners who make a prac tice of growling about the pro grammes of the Australian broad casting stations may be interested to read of the value placed upon them by a writer in the London "Radii Times." He says that when in Aus tralia he saw something of the lives of men and women on the outback farms and to theBe, radio was the greatest benefit which the century had brought. In pre-radio days a farmer's wife often never saw an other - woman for months on end. Now she was no longer alone and the settler with his family, after the long day's toil, could bring the whole world to visit him by means of his radio set.
SCREECHING SOPRANOS. Hornsby Radiists Wail. [Newspaper Article] — The Biz — 19 January 1929
SCREECHING SOPRANOS. Hornsby Ridiiiti Wail. Listeners to the radiocasting sta tions make all manner of requests for items to be included in the pro grammes. The latest is from a man at Hornsby who asks: "Would it be possible, say, between the hours of 8 and 10 p.m. to give a man's programme . and curtail those screeching soprano voices. It must be obvious how unsuitable are wo men's voices on the air. The major ity of my men friends complain of the same things, e specially those .who listen on crystal sets. Women have all day to listen in, and when I tune in the radio after a hard day's work, it is very annoying to my jad ed nerves to hear shrill femals voices of the air." The writer states this is his' first growl as a listener for over seven years. Perhaps he is entitled to speak up because some listeners write complaining letters every week of their lives. He ought to join the movement to establish a "Socjety for the Suppression of Radio So pranos." It is said that such an or gan...

THE TRAFFIC DOME. The Acting Secretary, Main Roads Board, replied to Granville Council's letter regarding the traffic dome at the intersection of Railway Parade and the vehicular traffic bridge at Granville station, stating that, while the Board is of the opinion that the present position of the traffic dome is most suitable in the general inter est, it will have no objection to the alteration of the position of the dome by the Council at their own risk and responsibility.-The dome has disappeared, nobody knows where; so.the argument is settled.
