RADIO STARS MICROPHONE A break for Pat! But Peggy finds that she must fight her career battles alone. And there's, that ''other girl'' to worry about . .. THEY came to New York together—these two nice youngsters, Pat and Peg—to win radio fame. They had had two years' experience in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This fact, together with their winning personalities, se- cured them an appointment for an audition at NBC. And Budd Hulick—of Stoopnagle and Budd—who had met them once, back in Tulsa, saw the two in a restaurant and remembered them. They told him their story. Budd suggested that they visit the Greenwich Village Nut Club one evening—a great rendezvous for radio stars. They (lid—and Budd Hulick introduced Pat to a man from one of the big advertising agencies. And also to a lovely brunette—whose father was President of Wyandotte Gingerale! Peg, realizing intuitively that the advertising mail's interest—and the brunette's—was in Pat alone, didn't interfere. And she didn't mind too much when Pat was asked to go up to Harlem with the gay party. Budd Hulick kindly oiTered to see Peg home. It was almost three in the morning when Peggy re- turned to her little hotel room. Driving up from the Nut Club, Budd Hulick had been very thoughtful. Radio was a peculiar business, he had said. Personal contact meant so much. "When an advertiser puts on a radio program and decides to use a singer," he explained, "he has his choice of dozens of them, all of them equally talented. It is' only natural that he is going to show some preference to the singer he knows personally. It's really a great break for Pat, and for you, too," he added quickly, "that he made such a hit with Mr. Watson and Miss Holmes. Watson has the say-so on the Wyandotte program, but his selections will have to be approved by Miss Holmes' father who is president of the Wyandotte company." Tired though she was, Peggy didn't go to sleep im Peg flung herself face down on the narrow liHle hotel bed and sobbed. Oh, it was too hunniliat- ingl There was a knock at the door—but Peg's pride wouldn't let her answer it. 36 /
