I was looking for, "A survey of the career of singer Annette Hanshaw by Robert Bamberger," and Google pointed me in your direction. Unfortunately, after getting here, I can find no mention of it. Do you have a copy in your files? I have gathered a collection of programs on Annette, but this recording, which is about 90-minutes long, would seem to be the definitive
treatment of the subject. There is also Bryan Rust's interview of her, but I have not managed to acquire a copy of it, either. I still have my hopes, though.

Google is a trickster. I like Rob Bamberger and appreciate his great show, but I don't have a recording of Rob's Annette Hanshaw broadcast. In fact, I've never heard it.

Years ago I played the CBC program about Annette and you might find that by searching my archives. That program should still be available through a-infos radio.

But I really am starting to think Google is the devil. I keep getting emails from people who think I repair and sell old radios. All it takes is a minute or two looking at this site to dispel that notion.
