Music Hall - Pgm 155

August 20th, 2009

Note:  The following program contains racial stereotyping themes that may be offensive to some listeners.

Last week we heard a previously lost episode of the "Kraft Music Hall" featuring Lum N' Abner.  In this post, another episode in the series that appears to be not in circulation.

Broadcast as "Music Hall" on the Armed Forces Radio Network as program 155 in the series and originally heard as "Kraft Music Hall" on November 22, 1945 on NBC, the program features host Frank Morgan.  The first song on the show is "Tampico" and Frank Morgan appears in a comedy sketch about pirates.  The show features John Scott Trotter and His Orchestra, the Charioteers, Lina Romay, Vera Vague,  Carmen Cavallaro and announcer Ken Carpenter.

The show was transferred from an original AFRS vinyl transcription.  There's some heavy grove damage and scratches on the disc; the file has been run through some noise reduction software to clean up the sound a bit.

    Thanks again for this one, Rand… was out of town for a couple days and didn’t see this one go up right away.
