This week, we come to the conclusion of episodes in my collection of "The Passing Parade", a program syndicated in the late 40s and early 50s with John Nesbitt's stories of the strange, ironic and unusual.
In program 48, Nesbitt gives us part two of the amazing story of the Mount Palomar Telescope. Part one of the story, from program 47, can be heard in an earlier post on the blog.
I'm sad to see the end of the series. Today, the only means we have to get interesting and unusual stories like this is to browse random articles in Wikipedia. It's just not the same.
The show was transferred from an original vinyl MGM Radio Attractions transcription, matrix number MGM JN 1648.
