In this programme, we hear from American opera diva Beverly Sills (1929-2007), one of the greatest sopranos of her day and remembered forever for her performance of such roles as Lucia di Lammermoor and Queen Elizabeth.
Before joining us at Radio Netherlands in 1976, Pete Myers hosted BBC programmes like “Late Night Extra” and “PM” and spoke with some of the greatest artists in musical and theatre entertainment passing through London in the early 1970’s. This recording is from his personal collection.
