Hessberger Interview

Original tape of interview

William L Klein and George Hessberger get together on the Germania Broadcast in 1952 to discuss their long relationship.  The conversation touches on everything from the early days of the Germania Broadcast in 1927 to Hessberger's widely acclaimed performance at the "Century of Progress" World's Fair in 1933.  Franz Gerstenberg, director of the Germania Broadcast introduces the two old friends and asks a question or two as well.

The interview finishes with the playing of Hessberger's "Dorfmusik" which as Gerstenberg explains was first brought to the United States by William L. Klein and later became the theme-song of Hessberger's own radio program.
