A PERSONAL MEMOIR OF ANNE ZIEGLER AND WEBSTER BOOTH: PODCASTS



From 2014 I am publishing only one podcast per month. I have added some of the earlier podcasts to the Internet Archive and will gradually be removing them from Podomatic when I run out of storage space there. The list of my podcasts at the Internet archive is:

A PERSONAL MEMOIR OF ANNE ZIEGLER AND WEBSTER BOOTH - FINAL PODCAST - 21 JUNE 2014 







This is the last episode in a series which concentrated on the lives and careers of famous British duettists, Anne Ziegler and Webster Booth, and of my association with them. It was based on my book, "Sweethearts of Song: A Personal Memoir of Anne Ziegler and Webster Booth" available with my other books at http://www.lulu.com/duettists

I can hardly believe that it is thirty years since a friend phoned to tell me that she had heard of Webster’s death on “News About Britain” on BBC World Service. I had known that he was ill, but it still came as a shock to hear that my beloved friend had died in Penrhyn Bay, Llandudno at the age of 82. I think this is a fitting day on which to present my final podcast in this series.

These podcasts have largely been created for members of my Webster Booth-Anne Ziegler Yahoo group, the 78rpm Community, and the Anne Ziegler-Webster Booth fan pages on Facebook, but I am very glad that they have reached a wider audience who enjoy their singing and the performance of other artistes of their generation.

In this episode you will hear the voices of Anne and Webster, and some of Webster’s favourites – Dundee pianist, Fred Hartley, Australian bass baritone Peter Dawson, Australian baritone, Harold Williams, soprano Isobel Baillie and his favourite tenor, Jussi Bjorling.
