' Making an Impression '
Beryl Orde
Compere, Michael Holloway
Although this feature is described as a Radio Magazine, no straight talks are accepted for inclusion unless they deal with some thrilling and hair-raising experience.
A man may claim that he has made the loudest, funniest, and strangest instrument in the world, but he must not only say so : he must prove his contention by playing it, and he proves his case only if listeners agree.
In remote villages, in quiet fishing ports in the West, there are men and women with some strange gift that has a sound-value. Every time. the magazine appears, in fact, listeners may look for novelty from unusual sources.
