Front Page Drama - A Perfect Pair

April 12th, 2008

"Front Page Drama" was a program syndicated to local stations for many years during the OTR era by Hearst newspapers. Each 15 minute show was based on a story in an upcoming edition of "The American Weekly", a magazine distributed with Hearst newspapers. This episode, number 69, dates from circa June or July 1934 and is based on a "true story" about a small town newspaper reporter who complains that there's no interesting news in the town. Transferred from an original shellac Brunswick pressing of the program; note that the sound improves as the episode progresses.
