Passion of The Christ

The Bible

I also read mystery, suspense, and Stephan King!

Crocheting, reading, and walking.

No favorites

Sigh.....I'll never be able to fulfill. A trip to the Holy Land.

I'm very happily married, I have 3 children, 4 Special Children (No Step in my vocabulary)Grandmother and Great Grandmother

Too many to list here.

Sin of any and all kinds. What's not a sin to you, may be a sin to me, but....That's how life is.

I just LOVE, your comments to me!

I thought you might like this!


Love always, Annette, "That's All!"

This week’s Snapshot in Prose captures Cladrite Radio Sweetheart Annette
Hanshaw at the height of her fame. The year is 1935, and she’s already
sold more than 4,000,000 records, has declined stage and screen offers,
and claims to be mulling over the marketing of her personal method for
reading music without any training. Alas, just two or three years later,
she’ll give up recording and performing altogether, opting instead for a
sedate married life with her husband, Pathé Records executive Herman
“Wally” Rose.

And just FYI, Hanshaw’s nephew, one Frank W. Hanshaw III, says that
her birth certificate says she was entered the world not in 1910, as the
story below claims, but in 1901. Oh Annette, you deceitful minx!

It's an Art

DO YOU KNOW that the best known and highest paid artists on the air
never studied music in their lives and wouldn’t know a cadenza from a
condenser? ‘S a fact! If you studied the lives of Bing Crosby, Kate
Smith and Annette Hanshaw with a microscope, you’d find that their music
educations have been sadly neglected.

Do you think they worry over the fact that their technical knowledge
of music is so limited? No, and you wouldn’t either if you had their
incomes. Their stories only go to prove that you don’t have to have
special privileges to get places in radio, singing, music. And the same
thing is probably true in every other field of endeavor.

Let’s take the career of Annette Hanshaw, for instance. She was born
in New York City in 1910. Her father instilled in her a natural love of
music and she believes she could sing before she could speak. Anyhow,
she was able to sing the choruses of 16 popular ditties of the day
before she was 16 months old, and she’s added at least a song a month to
her repertoire ever since.

Annette liked to sing always. Most of us are the same way. She
surely had a natural flair for singing but since it was so effortless
for her she never dreamed that some day it would pay substantial

She thought a career necessarily meant hard work, so she ploughed
through school and took various courses, specializing in portrait
painting. She aspired to be a commercial artist. She entered the
National Academy of Design in New York and showed remarkable promise.

She went to parties often during the days when she was a popular
young debutante and it was at one of these gatherings that an executive
for a record company heard her warbling in her own, carefree way. He
listened while she sang song after song to rounds of applause and many
encores. At the end of the evening he handed her his card and suggested
that she call at his office.

More as a lark than anything else she made a voice test at the
recording executive’s request. She was having loads of fun and enjoyed
it immensely when they put her in front of an orchestra while the wax
disc whirled. She had had such a good time that she was almost ashamed
to accept the check they handed her.

All of this took place less than seven years ago and since then her
phonograph recordings have sold more than 4,000,000 copies, and she has
managed to lose all hesitancy about accepting checks.

Throughout this entire procedure—and even today—she never read a
note of music. She couldn’t. What she could and did do, though, was
thoroughly memorize and cue every song she sang.

Although she has had many stage and screen offers, Annette has
consistently refused to accept any of them because she wants to
concentrate on her radio broadcasting and phonograph recording. She once
even refused an offer from the great Florenz Ziegfeld, himself.

She rehearses in the evening, drinks lots of water before and during
broadcasts, dictates all replies to her fan mail herself and
scrupulously autographs all pictures herself.

Someday she may patent her method of reading music. Annette says it
is really very simple and anyone ought to be able to learn the system in
ten easy lessons.
