Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
After "The Voice of Firestone" debuted on radio in 1928, it aired on television. 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 series. This volume features soprano Helen Traubel singing popular songs and arias from Die Walkure. Traubel began her distinguished career in 1924 by singing with the St. Louis Symphony. She later moved to New York City and sang with the Metropolitan Opera and frequently toured Europe.
