Those are NOT the real "Wunschkonzert" recordings.
Please read the posts covering the so-called "Wunschkonzert" CDs http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 5#p1059657

Cheers,

You can find only a couple of real Wunschkonzert recordings scattered on the 3 CDs by UraCant, unfortunately mixed together with a load of studio tracks (see this topic).

There are no genuine "Wunschkonzert" recordings available online, except for a short footage of Herms Niel conducting "Flieger empor"



Full recordings of "Wunschkonzerte" were never made, only a few fragments of broadcasts were saved and they were recorded mostly privately. And if someone tries to offer you a full "Wunschkonzert" CD - be aware that the person is a liar and a crook, or simply has no idea what he's talking about.

Cheers,
Ivan

And what about this 3:38 bit here?
What song is that and who performed it?
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

It is a real "Wunschkonzert" Sunday recording from May 4th, 1941; Goedecke announces Melitta Klefer who has just returned from a troop entertainment trip to Norway. It's nice that the DRA decided to upload it online (I didn't know about that webpage, it's new).

Thanks Ivan. Couldn't quite understand Goedecke's introduction there...

You're welcome; he says: "After her return from a Troop Entertainment trip in [...], Norway, Melitta Klefer sings in the Request Concert for soldiers at all fronts the Song of the Moon; accompanied by Paul von Béky with his orchestra".
