Hymns and Their Romance - January 21, 1950

March 25th, 2017

And here’s another lost local show from WHBC in Canton, Ohio.

“Hymns and Their Romance” features Major Charles McCray of the Salvation Army telling the story behind famous hymns with organist Martin Alexander playing the songs.  The program of January 21, 1950 tells the story of “Savior, Thy Dying Love”.

Oddly, the transcription starts out with a bit of a recorded or broadcast opera before the start of the program.  Since the show was pre-recorded, the engineer would have just kept this part off the air.

Our mp3 was transferred from an original 16” Audiodisc lacquer.
