What true opera lover can resist our darling Olive Middleton,
a cult figure at New York's (in)famous La Puma Opera in the 60's.( the 1960's).   So what if she sang about three tones flat and had no teeth? She was adored,as you will hear on this brief (Thank GOD) podcast

Dorothy Kirsten Tribute. She was born on July 6, 1910

  When Dorothy Kirsten passed away in 1992, we learned
  she was actually about 9 years older than originally believed.
   This is even more amazing,considering how fresh and clear
   she sounded in 1974 and beyond.

The selections are from:  Thais, Fanciulla, Rondine, Butterfly,
 Louise, Tosca,La Rondine and she also sings Gershwin's
 "Someone To Watch Over  Me." Kirsten had an uncanny
  ability NOT to sound 'operatic' in pop music!
