Can two young people trying to break into show business find love with each other? Will people think they're nutty because they burst into song at the drop of a hat?
That's the central concept behind a five minute serial, "Dick and Jeannie", syndicated by Harry Jacobs Productions in Hollywood and New York. Ben Kibler, a helpful member of the otr mailing list, found references in newspapers showing the series broadcast as early as January 19, 1947 and as late as November 6, 1947.
In program 1 of the series, Dick and Jeannie introduce themselves and meet for the first time. Each show has a featured song and this one has them spooning and belting out "My Ideal".
The show was transferred from an original WOR-Harry Jacobs Productions transcription, matrix number WOR 6-9431. I think this might be a previously lost or at least a rare series among otr collectors.
I've got the first six shows in the series and we'll be hearing one each week over the next month and a half. So, stay tuned!
