Louie’s Hungry five - Pgm 309 - October 9, 1931

March 25th, 2017

Now another in our continuous run of twenty episodes of “Louie’s Hungry Five”, an early radio serial syndicated by the WGN-Tribune Company of Chicago.  You can find out more about the series in my original post about the program.  If you’re just joining us, you can catch up on all the episodes here.

In program 309, heard October 9, 1931, the group checks into a hotel for a couple of days before they leave for their trip to South America.  You can download a jpeg scan of the original local announcer’s cue sheet for the show here.

The mp3 of this episode was transferred direct from a set of two 12” shellac 78 rpm transcriptions recorded and pressed by Columbia’s Sound-On-Disc Division, matrix numbers 23371 and 23372.

These original discs look unplayed and were an absolute joy to dub, by the way.
