CRITIC REVIEW:

“Announcer for Metropolitan Opera radio broadcasts for 43 years, Milton Cross co-authored several books on music, MILTON CROSS' STORIES OF THE GREAT OPERAS and MILTON CROSS' MORE STORIES OF THE GREAT OPERAS, both with Karl Kohrs, and THE MILTON CROSS ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE GREAT COMPOSERS AND THEIR MUSIC with David Ewen. Both books were perennially popular, going through several editions over the years, but are out of print today. In the just over 43 years that Milton Cross served as announcer for the Metropolitan Opera Broadcasts, he only missed a broadcast twice, this right after his beloved wife Lillian's death in March of 1973.”
