Tuesday, July 10th, 2012

Well, I must have a short attention span today.  Up next on the blog, an episode of that great little syndicated dramatic filler program, "Five Minute Mysteries".

Now another edition of "Short Attention Span Theater", otr-style.  It's the popular RCA Syndicated Program series, "Five Minute Mysteries".

Program 27 is "A Bit of Logic" and was transferred from an original RCA vinyl transcription, matrix number ND5-MM-3329-8B.  The disc is dated December 22, 1947 and the disc is probably a repressing.

Five Minute Mysteries - Pgm 26

Let's pause for a brief mystery.  A five-minute mystery, in fact.

transcription label

From the RCA syndicated series, here's program 26, "A Rose By Any Other Name".

The show was transferred from original RCA Syndicated Program vinyl transcription, matrix number ND5-MM-3229-8B.  The disc is dated December 22, 1947 in the matrix, probably indicated a repressing - the "ND5" in the matrix number would put the original mastering of the show in 1945 so this is probably a repressing.

Five Minute Mysteries - Pgm 25

Monday, April 12th, 2010

"Five Minute Mysteries" was a wonderful little show syndicated by NBC in the 1940s, used by stations as "filler" after sports broadcasts or to fill a short slot on their schedule.  There are several episodes of the program floating around but I'm not sure the entire series has been found.

transcription label

Program 25 is titled "Signal Block" and was transferred from original RCA Syndicated Program vinyl transcription, matrix number ND5-MM-3229-8B.  The disc is dated December 22, 1947 in the matrix.

I'll drop in more of these in the coming months on the blog - I have two discs from the series.
