Looking for daughters of hairdresser Walter Somers & wife Win who moved from Townsville to Coorparoo, Brisbane in 1950s. Daughters were Beverley and Cheryl. One of them worked for radio station 4KQ.

Hi Pat, Beverley's 2nd name was Alvina, she was telephonist while still living with parents at Coorparoo. I don't know married names, nor birthdates.
Parents married 1932 in Townsville, moved to Coorparoo in 50s.
4KQ has no records from 50s, 60s or 70s.
