American Family Robinson - New Series - Pgm 82

August 1st, 2010

Only a few more shows left in our look at "American Family Robinson-New Series", syndicated by the National Association of Manufacturers to promote conservative political policies just before World War II.  In program 82 released the week of November 3, 1940, Myra waits for a letter from Luke, hoping he has heard her appeal on the air as Agatha and Windy Bill shop for new items to sell in the store.

The show was transferred from an original vinyl Orthacoustic transcription pressed by RCA, matrix number MS 056829-1.

    Thanks for toning the rhetoric down to something a bit more neutral in describing this series. “Propaganda” is such a wince word, laden with meanings and connotations that certain readers — those who find themselves in agreement with the ideas portrayed — will always take offense to, often with good cause. (Just as fans of Oboler or Corwin would be angered if the word were thrown in =their= direction. Even though their works were far more… subtle. Sometimes. :)
