Bette Midler On Pop Music: “You know what makes me the craziest? It’s the homogenization in the record industry today. There are no surprises. They’re giving us a flat presentation and calling that entertainment.” (Boca Raton, March 13, 1983) – Bette Midler

JACOB OLLER
NOVEMBER 1, 2017

Olive Higgins Prouty’s 1922 novel Stella Dallas became one of the first radio soap operas, creating the melodramatic form that would continue on through TV and film.
