TELLIN' YA; For North Iowa and southern Minnesota March I and May 1 may be moving days, but for Amos 'n' Andy movmg day comes right in the middle of those dates. For, on April 3, after 11 years on the air, the far-famed team of Freeman Gosden and Charlie Correll will move to the Columbia network under the continued sponsorship of Campbell soup. * » 4 To millions o[ listeners it will mean tuning in Amos 'n' Andy on a larger network than has ever before regularly carried their laughable and lovable comedy. CBS reveals that 53 stations on the network will carry the show, whereas formerly the pair was heard on 48 stations. It may be a larger network carrying the comedians after April 1, but 'there will be many disappointments, too. What are the Amos 'n' Andy listeners oi this territory going to do after April 3, for instance, if the soup company doesn't include KGLO on its outlets? This question comes up in view of the recent comprehensive, independent survey, as published in the "Billboard" magazine, showing that no other Columbia stations cul any ice in this territory. * * » Something new in the way of ticket requests came to Mark Warnow, Hit Parade maestro, this week. A fan in Kansas City wrote asking Warnow to please reserve four (iekefs for the July 15 broadcast as she expected to be in New York that week for the World fair. * » * Surveys reveal that nine out o£ ten successful radio singers were trained in church choirs. * i? CBS humorist Robert Benchley swings into movie-action on a new scries of shorts next week. Nathaniel, his son, recently graduated from Harvard, is responsible for the movie scripts. * « 5 The new issue of "Listener's Digest" carries a colored picture ol Benchley's life . . . and what a life * * * S.oortsc aster Jim Woods and Hank Hook of KGLO were booked for appearances at the district cage tourney at Cedar Falls Friday and Saturday eve- nine. Pat Patterson handles the loud speaker on WPA pugilistic bouts at Hampton Tuesday night. DIZZY TRIP* FOR BENGHLEY Robert Benchley, wit and raconteur, again boards his "Bounding Broomstick" on KGLO Sunday from 9:30 to 10 p. m. for a trip to some exotic land.

With Historical Event tern · The Columbia Broadcasting sys- m will go on a 24 hour broadcast :hedule as part of its elaborate arrangements to bring to American listeners from St. Peter's in Rome, impressive ceremonies attending coronation of Pope Pius XII on Sunday morning, March 12. Actual coronation ceremonies will begin at 1:30 a. m. and con- linue through 5:45 a. m. (8:30 a. -n. to 12:45 p. m. Rome time.) Minneapolis Symphony Between the usual midnight losing time for KGLO and the Vatican ceremonies, CBS has arranged to have appropriate music by the Minneapolis symphony orchestra, from 12 midnight until 12:30 a. m., with Dmitri Mitropou- los conducting. Also arranged are interludes o£ sacred music by monks of the Benedictine Abbey of St. Meinrad, Ind. Plans are un- J -;r way to have a noted Amerin cleric give Columbia listeners word picture of the new pope from 12:30 until 1 a. m. with appropriate organ background. The Benedictine order, to which ,. Meinrad monastery belongs, has been entrusted by the Roman Catholic church with the preservation and revival of Gregorian chant, which the church of Rome always has considered basic. This will be heard from 1 to 1:30 a. m. "Thou Art Peter" For this occasion, monks in their choir stalls at the sanctuary will sing the Gregorian "Liturgy on the Day o£ the Coronation of the Pope," based on the words "Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church." A special dispensation has been granted the Abbey of St. Meinrad by Bishop Hitter to change the monks' regular daily routine so they may sing this chant. It is probably the first time the chant ever has been heard on radio. List Symphony Number Selections by Minneapolis symphony orchestra are to include Bach's Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor Credo from Mass in Brain or; prelude to act 1, from Wag ner's "Lohengrin," March of the Knights of the Holy Grail, fror the same composer's "Parsifal Largo from Handel's "Xerxes" an Bach's Fantasia and Fugue in G minor. At 1:30 a. m. (8:30 a. m. Romi time), Rome is to be called in fo: Columbia's listeners. The Rev John P. Delaney, American member of the Vatican staff, is prepared to give the U. S. audience i description from time to time during the broadcast.
