For more than thirty years, The Voice of Firestone brought the world’s greatest artists into the homes of music lovers. Now, through a special arrangement with New England Conservatory in Boston, Kultur is proud to make these rare telecasts available to today’s audience. Jussi Bjoerling (1911-1960) continues to be one of the most beloved singers that the 20th century ever produced. His appearances on the Voice of Firestone provide an exciting supplement to his well-known commercial recordings.

I can't review this--please see below.November 20, 2012By S. Phillips (Minneapolis, MN)See All My Reviews"Dear Arkiv Music, 1. This is to be a Christmas gift for a friend, so I won't be opening it. 2. This has never happened in all my years of happy shopping with ArkivMusic. I placed the order on 10/22, expecting within a week-10 days the usual prompt shipping. When nothing arrived, I left a phone message. Then I received an e-mail on 11/4 from Steve, assuring me that it had been shipped and was on its way. To date nothing has arrived, and I'm getting a little concerned as to the DVD's whereabouts! I checked my order history--no info there either, as to location, dates, etc. Please send me a new one. If the first one shows up, I promise to return it promptly! I look forward to having this straightened out so that my friend receives his Christmas gift! Many thanks for your help, Sydney Phillips"Report Abuse
