Things are heating up in "American Family Robinson - New Series", our syndicated propaganda serial from the National Manufacturers Association (aka the National Industrial Council).
The Emporium's competitor, Gus Popelmeier, trying to expose the truth behind Luke and Myra's "Perfect Couple" publicity stunt, has found out that Luke has run away from home and is perfectly giddy about Luke and Myra's problems, planning his latest move. Meanwhile, Aunt Agatha and Windy Bill try to figure out what to do next.
Of course, "American Family Robinson" wouldn't be complete without a dig a liberal policies. In this show, Aunt Agatha and Windy Bill's conversation turn to a thirty hour workweek, with Agatha noting that the French were taken over by the Nazis because of their shortened workweek.
Strange that this series, designed to promote Conservative political views for business and manufacturing, depicts business people as some of the most sad, deceiving and crass folks on the planet. It makes for more fun and drama, but gives a very different picture of business owners than the original mid-30s effort heard a few months ago on the blog.
Program 79 in the series, recorded for release the week of October 20, 1940, was transferred from an original Orthacoustic vinyl transcription pressed by RCA, matrix number MS 056441-1A.
