Letter to the Editor of Radio News by Julius Klein


The writer has just finished reading Mr. Adams' most interesting article in the September issue, entitled "Radio and Our Spoken Language."[1]

He is certainly to be complimented on this article; but, at the same time, I feel it is my duty to let you know that in the paragraph entitled : "No Foreign Language Programs," I believe he has been misinformed, or his search failed to disclose the correct information.

I wish to advise you that the "Chicagoer Herold," with the American admirers of German art in the city of Chicago, broadcasts regularly over Station WIBO, every Sunday between 2:30 and 3:30 P.M. This hour is known as the German Radio Hour and affords real German entertainment by German artists. In the city of Chicago we have a German population of 500,000 and upwards.

I am very pleased to state that, from the volume of letters, telegrams and phone calls of appreciation we have received, we are convinced all nations are appreciative of a broadcast station in their mother tongue, and I venture to say that within a short period of time all nations will be represented by a broadcast station.

Managing Editor "Chicagoer Herold,"
20 E. Jackson Blvd., Chicago, Ill.
