s I Folks Behind
r The Microphone
i y TITLE is heard of those’ valiant
I souls who assail the microphones
of the numerous broadcasting
t I—4 studios in the daytime hours.
They work outside the spotlight
i of publicity, their praises go unknown
and unsung, mainly, perhaps, because
the people who write about radio per
. formers never get up early enough to
hear them.
, There is Larry Briers. A pioneer in
radio, a radio orchestra leader for the
last four years, few people would
1 recognize him if they saw him, yet
Vaughn de Leath, Graham McNamee
or Hugo Marianl, stars of evening radio
programs, can hardly venture Into the 1
street without being recognized.
Not that the name Briers Isn't known
to the radio audience, not that his I
music doesn’t find as great an audience'
as that of the night time stars, it is
just the fact that no photographer is
expected to get up at the time he is
working in the National Broadcasting
Co. studios to take his picture.
Briers is one of the pioneers in
radio. He first worked for WEAF and
then came to the National Broadcast
ing Co. when it was first organized.
