Subject: Lucrezia Bori in La Rondine (Ravinia 1930)

And from far out in left field:  The truly historically-minded, at least, may be interested in knowing that there exists a recording of a radio broadcast of 26 minutes of La Rondine Act 2 (to the conclusion of the act), with Lucrezia Bori and Mario Chamlee, conducted by Gennaro Papi, from Ravinia Park (north of Chicago), on a CD, "A Bouquet for Lucrezia Bori," issued in the 1990s by the International Record Collectors' Club (IRCC).  The performance dates not from "October 8, 1934," the date given on the CD (by which date opera performances were no longer being given at Ravinia) but from August 1930.  The sound is "historical" but quite listenable.  Bori, in my opinion, leaves all other subsequent Magdas in the dust.  New and used copies of the CD are available (and affordably priced) on both and ebay.  I regard it as one of the most important and rewarding and therefore valuable CD issues.
