Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
Following its radio debut in 1928, The Voice of Firestone aired on television between 1949 and 1963. Some of the world's most promising newcomers and established stars sang classical songs and current hits while Howard Barlow and his 46-piece orchestra accompanied them. Many of these telecasts are now available as part of this In Opera and Song series. This volume features bass-baritone George London singing arias from Le Nozze di Figaro and Boris Godunov, as well as popular tunes by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Jerome Kern, and others. These performances originally aired between 1953 and 1955.
