Helen Matthews Inducted to WA Music Hall of Fame

Wednesday 4th November / presented by Caitlin Nienaber

She is Western Australia’s first lady of jazz with a career spanning more than half a century.

You may remember hearing Helen Matthews‘ voice on RTRFM on weekends during the ten years she spent as a much-loved presenter of Saturday Jazz.

We had been hearing her voice for decades before that, as a jazz singer and frontwoman for several bands and even out the front of her own ABC variety show.

On Thursday 5th November, WAM will officially induct her into the WA Music Hall of Fame.

Caitlin Nienaber congratulated her on breakfast and looked back on Helen’s fascinating career.
