Howard Wolfin as an accomplished pianist, Magic Circle entertainer, amateur actor and humorous songwriter, leads a busy life, both privately and communally. His wife and four children (and grandchildren) a constant priority, he is a Natural Fabrics specialist by day, indulging his many talents outside of the 100-year-old family business. Having caught the bug recording jingles for factory-radio and being dubbed ‘one-take Howie’ recently by a studio producer, he plans to follow up this latest work for Naxos Audiobooks by further storytelling, narration and voice-overs. The competition was for amateurs. However, among the (nearly) 1000 entries was a cassette recording which demanded particular attention. In the accompanying letter, Elizabeth Rickards explained that when she made the cassette she hadn’t realized that the rules excluded trained actors—until she was actually addressing the package. So she sent it anyway, explaining that she went to RADA in 1946, and hadn’t been in the profession for half a century. Technically, she was not eligible, but I felt that this was one case when it was worth bending the rules a bit. And, as a professional actress had slipped through the net into the final rounds, Elizabeth Rickards could take her place on this CD. We are delighted to have this enchanting recording.
