Good Morning, It’s Knight - Sales brochure

February 5th, 2010

I have a few pieces of old time radio memorabilia in my collection, so here's another non-audio bit of otr for you to enjoy.

This is a sales brochure for "Good Morning, It's Knight", a program originating at WJZ in New York.  It tells an unusual story about a contest promotion on the show that has to do with Paul Whiteman, a rooster, and picketing women from the Hollywood Model School.

WJZ was the flagship station for the Blue Network of the National Broadcasting Company until the formation of ABC in the mid-1940s.  WJZ changed its call sign to WABC in 1953.  (WJZ is currently the name of a Baltimore radio station.)

The brochure is undated, but is likely from around 1947 - the dates mentioned for the contest match up to a 1946 calendar.
