Mary Gonçalves becomes Queen of Radio 1952

Against all odds, the unthinkable became reality. Mary Gonçalves, an almost unknown singer who had been signed by Radio Clube do Brasil just a few months before was elected 1952 Queen of Radio beating powerhouses like Carmelia Alves, Adelaide Chiozzo and Olivinha Carvalho. Mary was crowned by Dalva de Oliveira and she looked just like a kid out of high school... just look at the pictures and you'll see a girl too happy to hide her joy... she barely contained her happiness. On the other hand it looked like Mary Gonçalves had been cut out for that role. She was a queen in her own right and she was a sovereign bound to please her subjects with her regal deportment.
