Louie’s Hungry Five - Pgm 302 - October 1, 1931

January 26th, 2017

Now the next installment in the early 1930s serial comedy about the “little German band”, “Louie’s Hungry Five”.  Read more about the series in my original post kicking off the series on the blog.

In our last episode, the Louie and the band were preparing to auction their household items to use the money for a trip to South America and trying to hide the auction from their girlfriends.  Julia called Louis on the phone and Emil tells her he has broken his leg.  In program 302, they’re figuring out how to keep Julia away from the auction and dealing with her checking with all the hospitals about Louie.  You can download the original cue sheet that was used by the local announcer here.

Our mp3 was transferred from two 12” Columbia Sound-On-Disc shellac transcriptions, matrix numbers 233257 and 233258.  I have a total of about twenty consecutive episodes of the series I’ll be posting over the coming weeks.
