…which is ‘The Great Voice From Michalovce’ in Slovak.
In the occasional series, ‘Na koncert s Reginou’ (‘In Concert On Regina’) on Rádio Regina Západ (Radio Regina West) there have been broadcast two hour-long specials on Valinka entitled as the title to this ‘Bananas For Breakfast’ Blog post, Parts One and Two – once on the evening of the 5th March and once again on the evening of the 12th March.
These have now evidently been uploaded to YouTube, according to the latest news from the ‘VALÉRIE ČIŽMÁROVÁ’ Facebook Group and can be watched as below.
It’s strange how the two parts appeared to reflect my respective moods on those two evenings, there being an overwhelming sense of melancholy about Part Two in comparison with Part One, which was more concentrated on the ‘Glory Years’ of Valinka’s recording career.
Maybe that’s also reflected in the thumbnail picture for Part One showing Valinka actually in action in a recording studio, specifically the Mozarteum.
I hope ‘Bananas For Breakfast’ Blog readers probably ‘enjoy’ Part One and ‘appreciate’ Part Two.
