We continue entries this week with another lost local radio show from WHBC, Canton, Ohio. I got these a couple of years back from a collector in the midwest; they appear to be “throwaway” working discs from the station.
“Hymns and Their Romance” is a program featuring Major Charles McCray of the Salvation Army telling the story behind famous hymns. The organist is Martin Alexander. The first hymn performed on the show of July 24, 1949 is “Love Lifted Me”. McCray tells the story behind the hymn “Love Divine, All Love Excelling”.
Our mp3 was transferred from an original 16” Audiodisc lacquer. I have another episode in the series I’ll post in coming weeks.
