WJAR Kiddie Radio Review - Children's Hour -
 Celia Moreau - Helen Epstein - Others...

David Stackhouse in his short bio told us about "Celia Moreau, who teaches piano  and singing, to youngsters, was long a featured personality  on WJAR with a Kiddie's Revue every Saturday morning that caused all dials to be turned to 920. They sang, danced, played; and many have gone on to musical futures, others in the musical or teaching business. Celia started playing Piano in Woolworth's, demonstrating the latest popular songs, and built her own career from that early experience."

Debra L. Chernick, daughter of Helen Chernick, age 88, contacted us at SMECC while researching her mother's part in Providence, Rhode Island's early broadcasting history. Debra came across an article we published by David Stackhouse where he described WJAR's Kiddie Radio Revue. Helen Chernick, then Helen Epstein, participated as a young singer in the 1930's. After reading the article, Debra emailed us and upon our request, interviewed her mom on video and provided these materials that are scanned here.

"I truly believe in the power of the internet to connect things up... and here  was an excellent example of it! Now,  let us see who this  page will draw into our story.  Enjoy..." Ed Sharpe - Archivist  for SMECC 11-21-2010
