BY MIKE Radio program directors are recognising the fact that the music of a good brass band is appreciated by about as many folks as one program can please. The government service bands. Pryor'a, Goldman's. Sanford's and Schmeman'a, are now on the air regularly, and "Mike" misses few of these concerts. Dell Staigers, noted cornetlst. Is to play a fantasy with the Goldman band tonight, the arrangement by Barnhouse. There isn't a bandsman In the country who Is not familiar with the Barnhouse arrangements, which emanate from Oska-loosa. Iowa, an Inland town of a few thousrjmi people, where Charles Barnhouse established a music house many years ago. More than a quarter of a century ago he made a. sucred medley ealifd "Joy to the World," a selection that has become standard with bandmasters. A few years ago Bnrnhouse told me that after all these years there was never a week that he did not receive an order for it. Just another little llltisl ration of the truth of the tale of the mouse trap. Columbia is strong: for artists from "way down south.'.' Irene. Beasley, Art Gillham, Dale Wlmbrow, the Bnswell sister and Kate Smith all come from Dixie. Now that vacation days are here and the "or swimmln' hole." beckons to the youth of the land, parents are again struggling with the age-old problem of "getting Johnnie to practice his music lessons." Rudy Vbllee has come to the rescue of harassed fathers nnd mothers with a timely suggestion. "Most of the tumble would Tease if parents would sit down with the bov and have a quiet, business-like lalk, pointing out that music offers a menns of attaining influence and leadership throughout his school life," says the maestro. "The boy should be told that beginning ln the grammar grades and continuing on throtigh high school and college his music, may be the means of his taking a leading rather than a passive part In every phase of school life. His classmates will recognize ln him a central figure a person about whom activities revolve. He will always be In demand when his class and fraternity brothers aft together for any occasion. Not many men in college are able to play the piano. He should also be told that mii'lc offers an easy means of earning his way through achool." Rudy believes that taiking man-to-man this way will he much more effective with the boy who has leached the age when he likes to be considered a wise and responsible voung man than trying to drive 'him to his daily practice periods. Dale. Wlmbrow, CBS troubadour, once thought that bis -family name, was easily understandable, when pronounced . over the air, hut he's beginning to chnnge hi mind. During the last few week lie ha received fan letters addressed to Dale Wlntilow. Wimploiigh, Window, Windrow, Wnodrow, Wimpo, Kimbn and downs of other variation. Lucille Black went to Coney Island last'Sundsy. She was walking along by the stands when she saw something that amused her and burst into laughter. The "barker" behind the counter looked at her and yelled: "Well, well, look who's here! Mocha De Polka of the Nit Wit hour. Hear her laugh," The "barker" doesn't know yet that, it actually was the Mocha De Polka of the Nit Wit hour, or that the lauih he heard and that you hear on the Nit Wits' program is Miss Black's natural laugh. Public speakers using the radio soon will be forced by the listening public to forego the use of a manuscript. In the opinion of Representative Ruth Bryan Owen, Democrat, of Florida. Mrs. Owen, a veteran before the microphone, has never used a manuscript and is regarded by many as the most finished radio speaker in Washington's officialdom. Mrs. Owen never fails to impress radio station attaches with her complete mastery of microphone technique. Recently, following the broadcasting of a speech over the Columbia system, she was asked for her opinions on radio public speaking. "The listening public," she said, "is not going to stand very long for the dead quality in a voice reading the written word. It will demand the freshness of extem-peraneous speaking. "Proof of that can be seen any day our congress is in session, a member who rises to spean won a voluminous manuscript before him RADIO'S LATKST "FIND" ON WXYZ FRANK ROSS One of radio's greatest finds.

WXYZ TO OFFER LEWISOHN MUSIC Famous Summer Concert Go On Network Thi Week The Lewisohn Stadium programs will be broadcast over WXYZ-Columbla . network several times weekly far two months, providing a seri. of summer concerts comparable to those of the Ne York Philharmonic Symphony orchestra which were broadcast over this network during the winter season. From the stadium at the College of the City of New York, portions r.t the concerts will be broadcast, whenever the program schedule permits. So far as Is possible, music which already is frequently heard on the air will not be included in the programs, aa it Is desired to present unusual works In the selies. Willem van Hoogstraten, who has been principal conductor alnce 1923. will open the aerirs, and take charge of the concerts for the first three weeks, The first broadcast will be Thursday night. is fated to see the galleries thin out. But let a speaker rise and begin without notes, without manuscript, without anything but his voice and his eye to see the reactions of hia audience. "I didn't find it hard to master extemporaneous speaking before the microphone. As a matter of fact, I found it much easier than I Imagine it would be if I used a manuscript." One of the reasons why Tony Wons, master of ceremonies for the Quarter Hour series dally on WXYZ, did not succeed a a haker wa due to hi generosity, Iemon cookie were hi specialty and those who patron-l.ed hi bakery bought plenty of them. The children of the neighborhood loved lemon cookie, too, and Won would donate entirely too many. Won found that hi "best seller" wa also hi "best loser." The Four Bon Bnns, dusky beauties whose harmonies are now heard over the Columbia system twice weekly, broadcast from the room at WABC known as the "World Studio," and rarely has there been drawn together a quartet whose members have had such cosmopolitan experience. The four reached the studio from the cafes of Russia, from the music halls of London, from the vaudeville stages of America and from Harlem. Georgette Harvey, known in the quartet as the "female bass," has had one of the most colorful careers of any singer. For 16 years she traveled and lived abroad. She appeared in the Cafe Villa Rode in St. Petersburg, Russia, and became a favorite entertainer of the Czar Nicholas. When the revolution broke out, she escaped to Siberia and then to Japan, where she earned her living by teaching Kng-llsh to Russian exiles. Finally earning enough for her passage, she returned to the United States, penniless. She returned to the stage, and subsequent perform-snces In "Runnin' Wild," "Porgy." "Shuffle Along" and other shows. Then there is Revella Hughes soprano voice, arranger and pianist for the Bon Bons. whose, musical accomplishments have won her world-wide acclaim. After years of piano and violin study, ah met Roland Hayes, who discovered her talent and helped her develop it. Her work has been entirely vocal and has brought her concerts ln this country and abroad, a command performance before the king and queen of England, and solo performances with many leading musical organizations. Lois Parker, the second soprano and third member of the quartet ensemble, was born in Columbus, Ohio, and is also the possessor of a bright career. After her graduation from Ohio State university, she came to New York and joined the cast of "Shuffle Along." her first professional engagement. The last of the Bon Bons la Musa Williams, "The Virginia Songbird," who contributes a mellow, golden contralto voice to the musical presentations. Like the others, she started atage work immediately after her graduation from college, appeared on Broadway in "Runnin' Wild" and "Pnrgr." and is now singing on the radio for the first time.

Far out on they almost deserted sands of Long Island, with an aviation field a couple of miles away as the nearest neighbor, stands a tiny building highly Important In International broadcasting. Hemmed In by a forest of poles which hold aloft a multitude of antenna wires it is the receiving station over which come radio programs from Europe. While acutally a unit of the receiving . station for international radio of RCA Communications, it is really a part of the National Broadcasting system, for its product is turned over to that chain for possible redistribution in this country. Music From All The World Almost any day in the year a visitor can step inside the door of this outpost of radio and be greeted by music from England, Germany, Holland or Italy. Racks of receivers fill most of the building, each tuned to a different coun'ry. Two young men run the dials of this sta'lnn. They are Elmer Eond and S. H. Simpson, Jr., who always are proud to demonstrate for the occasional visitor what their equipment will do. Around the station are three groups of aerials, a thousand feet apart, each section of which points toward a particular country. To insure absolute reception at all times, a single program is brought tn over three receivers, each connected to a different antenna group. The three receivers feed a device which automatically selects the signal of the greatest strength. Fading la Eliminated Thus, with the eignal fading on one or even two receivers, the third will be delivering good quali'v.
