We continue with our weekly look at "American Family Robinson", a serial syndicated by the National Association of Manufacturers as a propaganda effort against FDR's New Deal policies in the mid-1930s.

In program 62, Betty and Dick are leaving to meet Mr. Markham to see if he'll give their father a loan to save the paper when Windy Bill shows up and tags along with them.  Will Mr. Markham help save the newspaper?

The show was transferred from an original acetate World Broadcasting Inc transcription, matrix number 9356-3.

We've got seven shows left in my collection from this series we'll be hearing in the next few weeks; then we'll start a run of an updated "Family Robinson" serial that NAM produced just before our entry into World War II that critiques policies towards business as the country prepared for the conflict.
