American Radio Newsreel - Pgm 5

June 2nd, 2017

Now, let’s hear another episode of the unusual series, “American Radio Newsreel”.  The program was recorded on location each week and quickly edited and pressed up for syndication to local stations by Ayer-Prescott.

Program 5 in the series is dated to December 1939 by Goldin.  Stories include an interview with the captain and radio operator of a US vessel sailing for Norway to test neutrality law and another with the “only white rani in the world”, Viner Brooke.  Then we hear Otis Skinner and Martha Raye.  The announcers are James Cleminger and Alan Barnes.

The show was transferred from a sixteen inch one-sided shellac transcription.  There is no matrix number.
