Guest Star - Pgm 107

July 24th, 2009

We've offered a few episodes of the long running public service series "Guest Star" from the Treasury Department.  This one's interesting since it's a dramatic sketch, rather than the usual music programs one finds in this series.

transcription label

Program 107 in the series, intended for broadcast the week of April 10, 1949, features guest Alan Hale in a drama called "The Squirrel Cage".  The plot doesn't concerns small furry animals that gather nuts, but rather the "cage" or secure area that Hale's character works in where bank customers can access their safe deposit boxes.  The show features Win Elliot and Harry Sosnik and the Savings Bond Orchestra.

The show was transferred from an original Allied Record vinyl transcription.  Many thanks to listener Michael Utz for his generous donation of the disc to my collection.

    Good sound on this one. In fact, the sound quality of the programs I’ve listened to has been very high. I’m surprised that they’re 32kbps.
