GERMAN RADIO HOUR
Editor, RADIO NEWS:
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.

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