Lauritz MelchiorDanish-American opera tenor, Lauritz Melchior best known for his performances of Wagner's works, but he also had a great sense of humor and made guest appearances on radio with Fred Allen

Lauritz Melchior began his opera career as a boy soprano in his home of Denmark.  At the age of 18, he began training as a tenor at Copenhagen's premier Royal Opera school.  After colleague Ms. Charles Cahier heard him perform some soprano notes in a performance, she encouraged him to retrain his voice to become a tenor.  Studying under tenor Vilhelm Herold, Melchior spent a year retraining his voice and made his debut as a tenor in 1918. 

Interested in radio as early as 1920, when he participated in an experimental radio broadcast in a European Marconi station.
