Stateside With Rosalea: Shopping With Doreen

Stateside With Rosalea Barker

Shopping With Doreen

When I was growing up in a small country town in the ’50s and ’60s, one of the special treats of staying home sick on a school day was that I’d get to listen to the Shopping Report with Doreen on 2ZB. Wellington seemed like such a magical place and the stores Doreen visited were filled with exotic goods I’d never see in my hometown stores. It is in that spirit that I give you my own Shopping with Doreen.
