French New Resume Stocks Resume Virginia Fair Stock FRIDAY EVENING living Chase and Sanborn! Hcmr this Sunday is a landmark ta the history cf radio because any crans cf policy in a program of ruch calibre is bound to set a trend which others will fallow. The chie! reason for the change r-ld feem to be that the producers of the Hmir believe that they can just as well give the public what it -a-ants in thirty minutes as they can in sixty. According to this, the public wants to hear Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, a TveeklT JCueSt and a song or two from Donald Dickson with Robert Armbruster's orchestra in support.

Ciueflv. it is suspected, it wants to hear CharLe McCarthy. The Chase Sanborn Hour in its present form is the result of no mere haphazard grouping of talent. As long ago as 1931. the producers were -searching for a which would win the public ear.

It took them a long time and nar.v experi.Tier.ts before they evolved shows with which no other retwork seems so far to have been to compete at the same hour. The beeinninss of the Hour date Hack to 1923. This was when Ruay Vallee was setting the pattern for rad: entertainment with his Val-lee Varieties. The Vallee show was r-rre or less a Major Bowes professional hour and. significantly enough, it was from two of Vallee's discoveries that the Chase and Sar.bem Hour was to derive its createst stars.

Edgar Bergen end Cantor were both radio graduates from Rudy Vallees trial turns. The Chase and Sanborn Hour ac-t-iillv began its career on Sunday, September 8. 1929 as a 30-minute rrcgrarr on the NBC-Red Network. It was little mnre than a variety with Gustave Haenschen rd Dr Frank Black (now NBC Music Director) as the At the beginning of 1S31. Rubinoff i he of the magic violin) took over ml the head of an orchestra, and.

on March 8. the time was extended to 6-3 minutes, a period kept until the present change. A big step was taken on February 8. 1331. when the producers engaged Maurice Chevalier for four rronths.

Here was the beginning of variety, the program headed by a tar entertainer. Seven months later, on September 13. Eddie Cantor joined the program and the Chase and Sanborn Hour became one cf the leading shows on the air. Cantor was associated with the Hur. cff and on.

for over three rears. Bergen has yet to beat this "record although actually he has any more broadcasts than Cantor to hi credit, broadcasting was all done in York the days and Canter was often called away on tour or to Hollywood to make pictures. Illustrious "names were engaged as substitutes, including George Jes-seL Harry Richman, Georgie Price Bert" Lahr. Cantor only seri Chamberlain Speech the first half of Dr. Walter Dam-rosch's Music Appreciation Hour today at .2 p.m., over NBC and CFCF.

Examples of the subject will be taken from the Prelude to Bizet's "L'Arlesienne" Suite No, 1 and Tchaikovsky's Suite No. 3. The latter half of the hour will be devoted to the works of Mozart including his Overture to "The Marriage of Figaro," the First Movement from his Serenade for Four Orchestras and the Second and Fourth Movements from the Symphony No. 40 in Minor. Lily Pons, noted coloratura soprano, will sing the lead role in Delibes' "Lakme." during the broadcast from the stage of the Metropolitan Opera House tomorrow at 1.55 p.m., over NBC, CFCF and CBF.

Bernardino Molinari, for 28 years director of the Augrjsteo concerts in Rome, and well-known on this continent through frequent guest appearances with American orchestras, will be heard tomorrow at 10 p.m., over NBC and CBF. in the first of five concerts which he will conduct with the NBC Symphony Orchestra. Molinari completed his 35th Atlantic crossing on December 23, when he arrived in New York aboard the Italian liner Conte di Savoia. Since his last appearance with the NBC Symphony, in June, 1938. he has conducted concerts at the Augusteo.

and in addition has appeared in Berlin, Dresden, Bucharest, Budapest, Munich and Mannheim. The program includes Dvoraks Symphony No. 5 in minor, Richard Strauss's "Death and Transfiguration" and the Overture to Rossini's "Semiramide." MUSIC THIS WEEK-END. A musical discussion of the Theme and Variations form will occupy decided that the public had had enough. Besides there was a big show waiting to take over.

Not "Tne Big Show" but Major Bowes' Amateur Hour, one of the most successful programs ever to strike the air. The Major and his bell dominated the Hour and the public from March 24. 1935, to September 13. 1936. The amateur hour beat even Cantor in popularity.

It became a weekly appointment for the family to keep beside the receiver. When Bowes shifted his time, it took eight months to find a real successor. In the interim the producers secured the Good Will Court. It seemed to have all the makings of a surefire success. But, for reasons which need not be quoted here, the producers dropped it in less than three months.

"So You Want to be an Actor" followed, dangling movie contracts before the eyes of aspiring amateurs. This show in retrospect is chiefly remarkable for being the cause of a move to Hollywood where the Hour has been staged ever since. The biggest date until now in the entire history of the Chase and Sanborn Hour is May 9. 1937. The producers had decided to return to the variety formula.

W. C. Fields was engaged as the star comedian in succession to Eddy Cantor. Dor Ameche was made M.C. There were to be famous guests.

For comedy contrast the producers engaged Edgar Bergen, a ventriloquist who had made some successful appearances in Rudy Vallee's Varieties. Nelson Eddy was added during the summer. The result, of course, is well known. It soon became evident that the odd comedy act was stealing the show. W.

C. Fields retired and the Hour soon became primarily associated with Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy. Bergen's capture and retention of first place on the most popular radio hour of the day was a radio coup d'etat. He has dominated it for two and a half years. Now it is being made to measure for him.

Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, who recently made, an inspection tour of the western front, reports to the British Empire on "The War, Its Progress and Prospects." His statement will be heard over CFCF. CBM and CBF on Tuesday at 9.45 a.m. The broadcast originates in Mansion House, official residence of the Lord Mayor of London. Walter O'Hearn will comment on General Freyberg, who commands the armed forces of New Zealand, during his broadcast tonight at 7.55 p.m. over CFCF.
