PLANS ANNOUNCED
FOR RADIO WEDDING
'Wendall Hall-Marian Jt. Martin
Ceremonies Will Be Heard
by Millions.
Standing In the phyrical presence
of only three other people, a clergy
man and their attendants, Miss Ma
rian M. Martin, young newspaper
■woman of Chicago, and Wendall Hall,
known throughout the country after
his recent broadcasting tour as the
“Red-he ded Music Master,” techni
cally will have at lerst four million
guests at their wedding June 4.
Their Responses to the officiating
clergyman's solemn queries will
carry through the microphones of at
least four broadcasting stations, the
actual ceremony taking place in the
sumptuous studio of station WEAR in
New York City.
The principals in this unprece
dented wedding are insistent that the
ceremony be as quiet and as devoid
of sensation byway of reporters,
photographers and a naturally curi
ous public as if it were being con
ducted in the bride's home,
“Our wedding will not be broad
cast because either of us is especially
prominent,” Hall states modestly.
“That is not the idea. No. sir. There
are hundreds of thousands of folks
■whom 1 feel almost are personal
friends, folks to whom I’ve been
singing along a route that stretched
for nearly 4,000 miles. They all heard
me singing directly to Miss Martin
back in Chicago from whatever sec
tion of the country I happened to be
In. Our courtship in away has been
broadcast for the last four months.
People seemed to realize it somehow,
for they wrote to me by the thou
sands —wrote intimately. Just like
long-time friends. Lots of them sent
foolish little things to me. X like
them all. And, because we feel them
to be our friends, it seems natural to
want to have them all at our wed
ding.”
Miss Martin will be attended by
Miss Dorothy Fullerton, daughter of
Hugh Fullerton, feature writer and
sports authority. "Tom" Campbell,
former Yale track team captain and
crack 600-yard sprinter, will be Mr.
Hall's best man.
Mr. Hall is resting at his home in
Chicago after the strain of a four
month tour of stations. It is likely
that he will be heard from a Chicago
station in the interim before bis wed
ding.
RADIO NEWS
(Continued From Page 36.)
They told the committee that the
publicity given by radio broadcast
ing was harmful, in that it killed
the popularity of the song* before
the public had the inclination to pur
chase the music.
■ Six More Stations.
Six new class A broadcasting sta
tions were licensed last week by the
Department of Commerce, as follows:
AVDBE, Gilham-Schoen Electric
Company, Atlanta, Ga.» 252 meters. 10

tour, will resume their semi-weekly

New Distance Record.
American Vice Consul Quincy F.
Roberts, at Apia, Samoa, 7,300 mile*
from New York, reports the reception
of WEAF"s program from 7:18 p.m. to
■ 7:50 p.m. on Friday evening, March
14. which was from 1:48 to 2:20 a.rn.
New York time. The special program
of Paul Whiteman was being broad
cast on this occasion. This Is the
first time that an uninterrupted pro
gram has been received from such
distance over land and water. The
equipment used by Vice Consul in
Charge Roberts consisted of a single
circuit regenerative receiver with
two stages of audio frequency ampli
fication. oiis antenna is a single in
verted I* 80 feet high and 150 feet
long.
Consul Roberts reports that E. E.
Dunwoodie. radio officer of West Sa
moa and superintendent of Apia ra
dio. also heard the program, using
one stage of audio frequency ampli
fication.
There is six and a half hours* time
difference in the metropolitan broad
• casting station and the receiving
point in the far Pacific. The previous
long-distance report at this point was
the reception of a Chicago station. 745
miles nearer.
The details of the program sent to
WEAR by Mr. Roberts Indicate that
not only was the orchestra heard, but
solo numbers rfcognlzed, as well a*
the closing announcement. Including
a summary of the program for the
day following.
Station WEAP does not attempt
long-distance records, but it has ro
oolsed reports consisting of complete
logs of its program* for more than
twenty minutes, including identifica
tion of announcements and musical
numbers from such point* as Cape
Town. South Africa, Bueno* Aire*
Argentina, as well as Samoa. All
these record* were sufficiently com
plete to admit of substantiation
without doubt that WEAP was the
station which was received.
