Ports of Call - Pgm 33, New Zealand

June 7th, 2008

Another entry in the series "Ports of Call" from 1935-36, where we visit the dramatized history and culture of exotic countries in a half-hour. The program was produced by Philip J. Meany Advertising of Los Angeles and mastered at Radio Recorders in Hollywood.

Episode 33 looks at New Zealand where we learn about the origin of the main island of New Zealand, which appeared during a fishing expedition by a local god; colonization of the islands by the British; and a protected whale. I'm not sure what native New Zealander's will think of Hawaiian music being associated with the country, by the way.

This episode is not in circulation and has been transferred directly from a set of blue Columbia Flexite transcription discs.
