An update on Ma Perkins

January 17th, 2011

After a discussion on the OTR mailing list about my post of "Ma Perkins", episode 423 from an original uncoated aluminum disc and speculation that it might be the first episode, researcher Mike Biel dug up some original articles.  The series was syndicated to some stations in April 1935.  So, he speculates that this and the other show from the disc are dubs of the syndicated show, rehearsals or a "demo" to sell the program.  The 1935 syndication discs were produced at RCA and probably pressed on Victrolac, so the disc in my collection was made for some reference purpose.
