October 23rd, 2009

Hildegarde returns to the blog this week with another previously lost episode of her series "The Raleigh Room" originally broadcast on NBC.

In this post, we hear the episode of September 25, 1945 heard on the Armed Forces Radio Service as program 23 in the series, "Hildegarde".  Hildegarde starts off the show with her chipper version of "It's a Hap-Hap-Happy Day".  Guests are comedian Willie Howard, Paulette Goddard and Harry Conover and one of his models, Marsha.

The show was transferred from an original AFRS vinyl transcription, matrix numbers HD5-MM-12784-1 and HD5-MM12785-1, probably pressed by RCA.  Date is from the transcription matrix.  The original disc has groove damage and has been sent through some click reduction software to improve the sound.
