Komedy Kingdom - Pgm 2

November 17th, 2008

Here's another episode of the charming 1937 Transco syndicated series, "Komedy Kingdom", which evolved from a local show on KRFC, San Francisco.

In program 2, titled "Marriage", vaudeville veteran Al K. Hall talks about his marriage and Morey Amsterdam (later of "Dick Van Dyke Show" fame) compares a typical marriage to a prize fight.  Music includes "The Girl in the Garden (and the Boy at the Gate) from the chorus and Mabel Todd singing "You're Not the Kind of a Boy (For a Girl Like Me)".

The show was transferred from an original shellac Transco transcription disc.  The First Generation Radio Archives has released a cd set comprising the entire series transferred from unplayed file copies of the shows.
