Show Stoppers - Pgm 19

Monday, April 19th, 2010

"Show Stoppers" is one of those obscure little programs that seems to have slipped through the cracks over the years.  Sponsored by Koret of California, the series features guests who talk about their show-biz careers and the turning points in their lives that led to their success.  Goldin lists several programs in the series with some interesting guest stars.

Program 19 in the series features band leader and radio host Kay Kyser talking with host Knox Manning.  Kay Kyser is best known to old time radio fans as the host of the "Kollege of Musical Knowledge" on NBC.  But, here in North Carolina, he's remembered as a loyal alumnus of the University of North Carolina and one of the key figures that helped establish UNC's public television station.  You can find an authorized biographical website at http://www.kaykyser.net/.

Our mp3 originated from an NBC Orthacoustic transcription pressed for Textile Broadcasts, Inc, 846 S. Broadway, Los Angeles 14, California.  The matrix number is HD6-MM-7306-1, which I think would put this disc being mastered in 1946.
