Front Page Drama - Pgm 144

August 13th, 2008

Here's another episode of the long-running weekly dramatic series, "Front Page Drama", sponsored by Hearst Newspapers and featuring adaptations of stories appearing in the "American Weekly" magazine.

This episode, number 144 in the series, was broadcast January 25, 1936 and is titled "Repayment".  The story concerns international intrigue about a small European country and a US treaty.

The show was transferred from an original RCA Victrolac pressing, matrix 98715.  The disc, by the way, came from an antiques dealer with the original railroad shipping container and special needle originally used to play the disc at the station.  Amazing that the whole package survived over 70 years in this state.

    Thanks again, Rand, for posting this show. I love anything from the 30s–so little is available and it is always interesting historically to see the difference between 30s and 40s programming. I’m especially looking forward to listening to the WPA project transcriptions you have posted.
