Grace Moore, soprano of grand opera and screen, will sing in a special adaptation of Puccini's "Madame Butterfly" during the Radio Theater" broadcast over WCCO Monday, from 8 to 9 p. m. _Miss Moore made her debut .with the Metropolitan Opera company in .New York City in 1929. Her first appearance was the occasion for great rejoicing among friends and relatives in her native Jellico, Tenn. A special car brought them to Manhattan to see the first great triumph of the home town girl who made her own way. At 17, Miss Moore had been such a success in a concert with Giovanni Martinelli in Washington, that her family encouraged her to pursue her studies further. After several years of troupmg, and periods of study in Europe, Irving Berlin encountered her, and after hearing her sing, signed her for his successful "Music Box Revue." It was this engagement which le'd not only to her Metropolitan opera roles, but appearances for the Opera Comique in Paris, and a tour of other European countries.

By RADIO RAMBLER Latest of the group of artists to be heard over KGLO are the Revelers, one of the most popular of contemporary quartets. The Revelers are heard during the Concert Hall of the Air program, a nightly feature at 7:45. The history of this harmony group is a spectacular one. In 1918 a quurlet known as the Shannon Four, composed of Charles Hart, Lewis James, Elliot Shaw and Wilfred Glenn were rapidly earning a reputation. Black Was Accompanist. Hart, the top tenor, left the group to sing on his own, Franklin Baur joined the group, along with , new accompanist, Frank Black --who is today one of the leading airwave maestros. They decided to attempt a new type of ensemble singing, in which they could break away from the traditional quartet and sing orches- trally. Success was immediate as critics hailed the musical worth of Hie innovation, and the Shannon Four became the Revelers. The Revelers are not, in the accepted term, a male "quartet. They do not indulge in "close harmony" effects of the. conventional group of four. Rather they are a vocal ensemble comparable to' a fine string quartet, and apply their amazing ensemble to every type of music from the classics to the moderns, and jazz. Their repertoire as of amazing size and variety. Most of "their artistic arrangements have been created by Frank Black. "American Qualily. J1 The Revelers have been HOWARD HANSON ON MUSIC HALL Great American Composer Will-Be Guest Conductor on Program. Two outstanding A m e r i c a n composers.

In their singing is a quality distinctively American and which cannot be found in any music. They have appeared on the air with the late Will Rogers; on the -ity Service concert and with many other currently popular air shows. Frank Banta is their accompanist today. This group of artists will appear with Mary Lewis and Rosario Bourdon's symphonic group in the Concert Hall of the Air over KGLO.

AMERICAN LIFE IS REFLECTED IN AL JOLSON'S SONGS Popular Star of Airwaves First Popularized Songs During 1911. History's headlines of American nalional life for more than three decades ave reflected in the life and songs of Al Jolson. He literally sings the songs of the changing spirit and sentiment of the new world. Jolson cannot step to 1he microphone or to the sound cameras these days without awaken^ ing in millions of listeners stirring memories of glamorous pre-war days, war-time emotions, a n d the post-war-ups and- downs o£ a people w h i c h have smiled and wept with him It has always been so on stage and screen and, today, on h i s Tuesday evening programs.

Then he introduced the song, "My Sumurun irl," and the Jerome Kern number, "Paris Is a Paradise," the irst o£ his record for bringing ong£ into nation-wide promin- nce, as almost no other man has. Popularized "Southern Era." It was during the period from 911 until the beginning of the Vor!d war that Jolson popularized the "southern era" o£ songs and introduced such melodies as "Waiting for the Robert E. Lee" which he sang in the 1913 Winter Garden production of "The Whirl of Society," "Yes Sir, I'm Going South" and "My Mysterious Rag,", written 'by -Irving Berliii. Other songs he introduced during this period were "That Haunting Melody" written by George Cohan, "You Made Me Love You" and "Fullman Porters on Parade." Jolson says there were feu' songs he enjoyed introducing more than the latter number, for every time he sang it he thought o£ the countless porters he had met--genial, jolly-faced Negroes whom he usually had been too poor to tip. The fact is that when this song was first submitted to him in the early days of his popularity, he believed that at last he had found a way o£ glorifying those he had learned to know when he was a down and out vaudeville trouper. In 1918 Jolson starred in one of his greatest musicals, "Sinbad " and brought into national prominence the third milestone ot American song--an era of melody xyhich reflected the spirit of wartime. During this and the year which followed the war, he introduced such songs as "Rose o£ No-Mans Land," "Hello Central, Give Me No-Man's Land" and How Are You Going to Keep Ihem Down on the Farm After They've Seen'Paree'" Sangr "My Buddy," "Mammy." and "Keep Smiling at "Mammy" Trouble."
