Throughout his life Don Wall has loved music and entertaining. In the days before television in Hornsby Shire audiences were entertained by singers and instrumentalists and at the top of every local bill was a young man with a rich bass-baritone voice named Don Wall. Don served with the RAAF during the war and then joined the Public Service. As an officer with the Australian Tax Office he travelled throughout NSW and had many interesting and challenging experiences. At the same time he continued with his music: from the 1950s he was involved in classical programmes and in the Gladys Moncrieff Show on the radio, he entertained at Clubs and recorded albums with Festival Records. Later he worked in television, was an entertainer with P&O Shipping, and house compere at Oatlands House. In later years Don has been active in local radio and lawn bowls. Belonging to the pioneer Wall family, he has memories of Berowra, Asquith and Hornsby that stretch back to the days before the Pacific Highway was built. This book will appeal to family and local historians and to everyone with an interest in popular music. Soft cover, B5, vi +58 pages, illustrations, index.
