A newspaper article published by The Sun newspaper in Sydney, Australia, on August, 3rd, 1926. The article is interesting in that it credits Gypsy Smith's evangelical campaign in Australia with expanding the radio network in the country. According to the article, radio sets were installed in over 100 churches in the country to enable worshippers to listen to Gypsy's addresses. Careful reading also suggests that the writer of the article was perhaps not quite as taken by Gypsy's evangelical campaign as many of his countrymen and women.

The Sun newspaper closed in 1988.
