Starting off our posts this week on the blog is another previously lost episode of the controversial mid-thirties syndicated propaganda radio serial, “American Family Robinson”, sponsored by the National Association of Manufacturers. Read more about the series in my first blog post on the broadcasts.
Previously, Gus Olsen bought the Centerville “Herald” and made Luke the managing editor. Gus also rented out the ground floor of the building to a pet shop. In program 141, Luke comes up with a plan to get rid of a goat and other animals from the shop cause havoc in the newspaper offices and Gus presents Luke with a new secretary. This is one of the more humorous episodes of the series.
