Join her as she takes a delightful trip down Memory Lane, growing up
with an American mother and a North Indian father, her life and her work
and everything in between that goes to make Goolbai Gunasekara the
much-loved and multi-faceted person she is . And the chat is of course
not complete without reference to her mother, the legendary Clara
REPEAT : Tuesday April 19 at 8.00 AM.
Briget Halpe waxes
eloquent on "Celeb Chat"She spent more than four hours on the road
coming all the way from home in Anniewatte off Kandy ... direct into
make-up room ... a quick touch up ... mix and match lipsticks et al ...
and Briget Halpe was ready to fire even before the lights were switched
An indefatiguable explosion of energy, Briget Halpe hits a neat 75 in
October but hardly looks it. Listen to her talk about her abiding
passion for music ... her life with her husband (and incidentally, her
former lecturer at the University of Peradeniya) the legendary Prof.
Ashley Halpe ... the pride she takes in her offspring Guy, Hasinee and
Aparna ... the Kandy Music Society ... the Peradeniya Singers ... and in
fact everything that goes to make the multi-dimensional Briget Halpe.
Join host Kumar de Silva for all this and more at 9.30 pm on Monday
April 11 on CSN.
REPEAT : Tuesday April 12 at 8.00 AM.
You can catch "Celeb Chat" on CSN on UHF 22, Channel 75 on Dialog TV
