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.
