Louie’s Hungry Five - Pgm 303, October 2, 1931

February 2nd, 2017

We continue our look at the early 30’s comedy serial, “Louie’s Hungry Five”, distributed by WGN.  You can read more about the series in my original post that kicked off the series.

Program 303, heard Friday, October 2, 1931, has the guys in the “little German band” still trying to hide the fact from their girlfriends the fact that they’re selling all their household items to go to South America.  After some music, they start the auction, with Louie giving them instructions on how to increase the bids.  You can see the original cue sheet for the local announcer by downloading this jpeg image.

Our show was transferred from two twelve-inch 78 rpm shellac transcriptions pressed by Columbia’s Sound-on-Disc division, matrix numbers 233259 and 233260.
