GINO BORDIN .... RADIO STAR
Way back in the 1930s Gino was a major star of radio stations in Paris , with his own show....and his "guitare hawaïenne" recordings were played on stations across France and other other countries in Europe. Our friend John Marsden remembers hearing him on Radio Luxembourg in the 1950s, long after his heyday .
Now , following the release of the cd "Virtuose de la guitare hawaïenne" Gino is back on the airwaves . Several stations in the USA are regularly playing tracks from the cd , the late Charlie Gillett played a track on his BBC World Service programme "Sound of the World" and fRoots magazine had a track on its January playlist .
Furthermore Cyril LeFebvre recorded a radio show with Hélène Hazera which was broadcast on Radio France on January 3rd, 2010 . The show, based on Gino, also features Cyril playing several songs.
