And now the last episode I have in my collection of an obscure early 30s syndicated radio show featuring Curtis H. Springer, the “King of the Quacks”, with his advice on “the facts about life”. You can read more about Springer in my first post on the series.
In program 5, Springer starts off his commentary talking about old family photographs, leading into his pitch for how fashions can be damaging to health. The sponsor is Acidine and your announcer is Hal Dean.
Our mp3 was transferred direct from a translucent blue one-sided 16” celluloid Brunswick transcription, matrix number 9153. The disc was pressed by Flexo, a manufacturer of promotional and radio-related discs made with experimental plastics in the early 1930s. The series was recorded in Chicago.
