Jack Berch - August 29, 1947

June 26th, 2009

Here's another disc of a fun little morning program I ran into, featuring the "Whistle Man", Jack Berch in what they bill as "The Shortest Fifteen Minutes in Radio!".  Sponsored by Prudential Insurance, the show ran on NBC daily and is a mix of songs and banter and includes a trio made up of Charles Magnante, Tony Mottola, and George Schackle and announcer Eddie Dunne.

The show of August 29, 1947 starts out with a great crack-up by the announcer.  Songs include "It's a Good Day", "Apple Blossom Wedding", and the trio's version of Raymond Scott's tune "Power House".

Our mp3 was digitized directly from an original lacquer line check from an unknown NBC local station.  This appears to be a previously lost episode of the series.
