Louie’s Hungry Five - Pgm 305, October 5, 1931

February 22nd, 2017

Once again we drop in on the continuing story of the “little German Band” with “Louie’s Hungry Five”.  You can read background information on the program in my first post in this series.

In episode 305, originally broadcast October 5, 1931, the boys work to wrap up the auction of their household goods to fund their trip to South America, selling their stove.  Anyone recognize the popular tune they play a couple of minutes into the show?

You can download a jpeg of the original local announcer’s cue sheet for the program here.

Our mp3 was transferred directly from two twelve-inch shellac 78 rpm transcriptions, pressed by Columbia’s Sound-on-Disc division, matrix numbers 233263 and 233264.
