LIFE


Recording engineer for Columbia

Early in 1926 Reg. (Reginald) Southey (later Director of EMI (Australia) Ltd.) installed the electrical recording system in the newly acquired Milan Studio. In October 1926 Columbia engineers James Clenshaw and Walter S. Barrell made a series of recordings there. In all, they stayed six weeks and recorded among others Eva Turner and Mariano Stabile.
They were staying at the Diana Hotel, where three HMV engineers were also staying (HMV was recording at the Scala Theatre in Milan).
