Pick and Pat - circa 1938

November 18th, 2009

We come to the end of a series of excerpts from the CBS series "Pick and Pat", featuring Blackface comedians Pick Padgett and Pat Malone.  The shows were recorded for the producer of the series and turned up from an estate sale a few months ago.

This excerpt, part of 2 of a program originally recorded in three sections, has Pick and Pat doing a routine about poetry.  "I Married an Angel" is played by saxophonist Benny Kruegar and the orchestra and tenor Edward Roecker sings "The Girl in the Bonnet of Blue".  The excerpt would appear to be from sometime in 1938, based on other discs in the series from this collection.

The show was transferred from original WABC aircheck lacquer recorded by Advertiser's Recording Service, New York and was previously lost.
