Carlo Mastelli, the young radio presenter of "New Voices" has run short of ideas and his program is likely to be suspended from the radio schedule if he does not find any new ones. He is saved by chance in the person of Marina, a charming young school teacher, who takes advantage of the presence of a radio crew in her village for the recording of a singing contest to broadcast an appeal in favor of Tonino, the most underprivileged of her pupils. She asks the listeners to send postcards from any place in the world to cheer up little Tonino. The response is enthusiastic and tons of mail land in the radio studios, at the same time boosting the audience of Calo's moribund program. Eventually, despite some trouble with a rare stamp, all ends well and Carlo marries Marina. Written by Guy Bellinger

A radio broadcast is trashed by the audience;the Young host (Philippe Lemaire) is asked to find new talents or else he will sign at the national employment agency.

He stops in the small town of Monte Carlone -the action takes place in Italy - where he looks for new talents under a big top:but the new talents are abysmal,each one lousier than the one before ;at the end of the competition ,a young schoolteacher talks about one of her pupils, a poor orphan who lives with his grandmother :she suggest people be generous and send him postcards ,because he is the only one in her classroom who has never received one;There's another plot concerning an invaluable stamp which is lost and the final is a chase in the streets .

The plot is rather flimsy,and it's a pretext to show music hall artists of the era:Luis Mariano,Line Renaud,Georges Guétary and more .A sketch parodying the American film noir provoked an angry response from the Office Catholique Du Cinema (too many murders!)
