RADIO STARS LET'S GOSSIP ABOUT This lady is Miss Jeanne Dunne. She's a Hollywood gal and a blues singer. You'll find her on station KFWB, Los Angeles. Why not tune in sometime? The Four Southern Singers—Annie Lau- rie, Owen, Robert and James Ward. Annie plays a mean washboard and the others perform on jugs, banjo, guitar, fiddle and ukulele. NBG, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Harriet Hilliard, pertly trousered, just like the boys in the orchestra which plays for her. Whose or- chestra? Why, Ozzie Nelson's, of course, of the Ho- tel New Yorker's Terrace restau- rant. You can hear the boys and Harriet over CBS. MINNEAPOLIS had a big treat last winter that we've just heard about. Placards announcing the arrival of Isham Jones' dance hand at one of the local halls were posted all over the Minnesota city. On the date set, hundreds of happy couples danced to a rather disappointing brand of music. After the bandsmen had collected their fee and left town, it was learned that Jones was playing in the East and had been in New York on the night he was supposed to he in Minneapolis. It's still a big mystery as to who the imitation Isham was. D. ID you know . . . Ramona, NBC singer and pianist made her debut over WDAF in Kansas City in 1926 on a "Night Hawk" program? . . . Edward Reese, the slinky sleuth of the Eno Crime Club, made his stage debut in a one-act play called "The Holdup"? . . . Harry Reser is a descendant of Davey Crockett, the famous hunter? IF you've missed Morton Downey, here's the latest news. He is off the air for the summer, having returned to his old spot, the Cafe de Paris, in London. Singing in Lon- don is an old Downey habit, if you didn't know. This is his seventh summer there. Incidentally, it was just five years ago that Morton sang into his first mike. It was at the studios of the llritish 1'roadcasting Company, and was he scared ! Now a dozen mikes wouldn't frighten him.
