Louie’s Hungry Five - Pgm 308, October 8, 1931

March 18th, 2017

Here’s another visit with the “little German band”, “Louie’s Hungry Five”, a series of twenty episodes of this early radio serial I’ll be posting on the blog.  There’s more background information on this obscure program in my first post about the series.

We’re almost half-way through the run of shows that I have from the series.  In program 308, broadcast October 8, 1931, the group continues preparing for their trip to South America.  Emil has ripped the telephone out of their room and taken it back to the telephone company.  You can download a jpeg of the original local announcer’s cue sheet for the episode here.

Our show was transferred directly from two twelve-inch shellac 78 rpm transcriptions, pressed by Columbia’s Sound-on-Disc division, matrix numbers 233269 and 233270.

Listen to more “Louie’s Hungry Five” in the blog next week.
