COMMUNITY SERVICES DEPARTMENT City off Veteran broadcaster tops field MONTREAL (CP) Thomas E. Darling whose in- novations in 45 years of Cana- dian broadcasting include open line programs in 1953 and helicopter traffic reports in 1957 was named here 1974 Broadcaster of the Year by Central Canada Broadcasters' Association Mr. Darling, president and general manager of Radio ML Ltd. Ont, received his award at the 24th annual dinner of the association, which represents English language radio and television stations in Ontario and Quebec. The CCBA award cited Mr. Darling's discovery and en- couragement of rookie broad- casters "who now constitute a veritable Who's Who in Cana- dian broadcasting" as well as his innovations in the medium. Mr. Darling's interviews at the birth of the Dionne quin- tuplets in 1934 were broadcast coast to coast. His radio campaigns raised for Winnipeg flood relief in 1952, launched the first Easter Seal broadcast from the Maple Leaf Gardens m 1947, and initiated Hamilton city council broadcasts in 1944. He opened the first radar weather unit in Canada at CHML in 1961. The Ruth Hancock Memorial "Friend of the In- dustry" award went to Richard G. Lewis of Toronto, former editor and publisher of the Canadian trade publica- tion Broadcaster. The award cited special ef- forts in promoting and defending private broad- casting made by Mr. Lewis who still contributes to the Toronto Sun and the city's radio station CKEY, By PAUL GESSELL MONTREAL (CP) Dust off those top hats and canes Vaudeville has been resur- rected in Montreal and is about to blast off into the space age. The rebirth is happening at a 600-seat cabaret called the Lorelei, where sultry blondes wearing calf-length floral skirts and dashing gentlemen with wide-brimmed, white fe- doras sip Singapore Slings and eye an almost topless tap dancer or an ageless comedy act on the huge ballroom dance floor. The Lorelei is a curious combination of old and new. While the live entertainment is often the old-time variety acts grandpa or grandma used to attend, a few modern kinks are thrown revealing bare breasts, female impersonators or a David Bowie disciple swing- ing from the rafters and screeching a ballad And although Andre Laf- lamme, club manager, hopes to renovate the cabaret to re- create a 1940s atmosphere, the 1970s music he labels "non-stop dance-power mu- sound" will continue to attract the cus- tomers to the dance floor be- tween acts. Typical of the acts Laf- lamme hopes to book on a regular basis is the Shango Dance Circus, a 16-member troupe whose style, although tempered with the modern, would have been at home in the old-fashioned vaudeville hall. "We will be including jazz, modern dance, mine, tap dance and Montreal's first male belly dancer and Pepper, the circus said Constantme Darling, cho- reographer. "We're trying to bring live entertainment to the people. We want to give people a breath of air." Laflamme said the "breath of air" includes reasonable prices. He charges admis- sion on weekdays and on weekends. Darling said most people cannot afford to see the big- name shows at the luxury au- ditoriums or hotels but that audiences crave live enter- tainment after two decades of television. "What we want is a revival of Broadway, Hollywood and Paris to mix with Quebec's own style of jazz, ballet and said Jesse Kruse, a member of the dance group. Darling said vaudeville cur- rently is the rage in New York City and he wants to-give Montrealers a taste of it. "To do a live cabaret show is every artist's said Darling, who has appeared on television but prefers the in- timacy of live cabaret. "We have been looking for a place like this to perform for two years now." j He said the-success of such films as Cabaret, The Boy- friend and That's Entertain- ment, all bouncy, flashy musi- cals, demonstrates that a market exists for entertain- ment "that just makes people feel good."
