I take the liberty of writing this e-mail in the hopes that you could help me find the ex-announcer of Far East Network Sendai in the name of Lynne Lowan who was presiding a very popular local program called “Ladies Are Present” edited locally by Camp Kawauchi Station staff-members. I was a sophomore/junior student of Tohoku Gakuin University majoring in English Literature and I used to listen to this cozy program in order to getting used to living English since I was learning mostly bookish English in my classes. In this morning program serval ladies are invited as the quests from several neighboring camp communities and talked about their daily life problems.
Once I sent her an essay with a title of “Cherry blossoms in Japan” with a few comments about several famous viewing spots, estimated best time schedules, our spiritual attachment to them, in connection with the samurai spirit, sine historical episodes, and so on, I received a letter from MS Lynne Lowan advising me of the date and time of the broadcasting thereof. An unforgettable memory of AFRS together with unforgettable favorite programs such as “The greatest stories ever told”, “Gun Smoke”, “Suspense”. Gracho Marc”s Comics, Hawaii Calls, Music by the candle lights, and a lot more!
I should be much obliged if you could look into the old employee lists and data of AFRS,/Far East Network Sendai and Kawauchi Station of 1954 to 1956 and let me know her current address and e-mail address.
We don’t have any more information in our records here at the Radio Heritage Foundation, but if you can help leave a comment here, or reply directly by email.
