Known as the Queen of Radio and the Baroness of Broadcasting, Australia’s audacious first woman talkback presenter preferred to be known simply as Andrea. Born in 1891, the daughter of William A. Gordon, a station manager from western New South Wales, Dorothy attended the exclusive Ascham School in Edgecliff before setting up a dressmaking business in Sydney and then trying her luck in Hollywood. She worked as a stuntwoman, an extra and then as a stock actress with Paramount Studios, where she obtained a role in The Sheik opposite Rudolph Valentino. By 1925 Dorothy had added two failed marriages. In the years before World War II Jenner moved between the United States, England and Australia, working on Victor Longford’s Hills of Hate and the landmark production of For the Term of His Natural Life, and writing a weekly column for the Sydney Sun. She adopted the nom de plume Andrea. She was interned in the Stanley prisoner of war camp. For three-and-a-half years she kept a diary on toilet paper, recording the rigours of her confinement. After her release in 1945, Jenner returned to journalism and was the subject of an Archibald Prize entry by Judy Cassab. In the late 1950s, she moved to 2UE to host a morning show with Tom Jacobs. Along with her stable-mates, Gordon Chater and Ormsby Wilkins, They occupied a middle ground between the disc jockeys who emerged in the 1950s and the ‘dial-in’ talkback hosts who emerged in the 1960s. Her abrasive, sometimes ribald conversational manner unnerved 2UE’s management and in 1963 she was lured to the Macquarie Network’s 2GB. Needing a foil, Jenner broadcast alongside John Pearce between 9 and 10am, increasing the session’s ratings. ‘Hello, Mums and Dads,’ delivered in a throaty contralto, was her trademark. Jenner would rise at 6.30am and study newspapers and magazines before recording the next day’s show, featuring sophisticated patter and interviews with celebrities. ‘Entertaining, highly provocative, shrewd and penetrating and terribly self-centred,’ declared the market research in 1964. She died on 24 March 1985, aged 94. Fine.    Price: $35.00
