Pick and Pat - May 23, 1938

October 2nd, 2009

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

In this excerpt from the program of May 23, 1938, Pick and Pat present a routine about golfing and we hear a commercial for Model tobacco and a number by the orchestra with a solo by Benny Krueger.  This episode is particularly interesting since the team briefly mentions television during their routine.  This is part 2 of the program only; the show was originally recorded in three parts and parts 1 and 3, unfortunately, are lost.

This previously lost/uncirculated program was transferred from an original WABC aircheck laquer recorded by Advertiser's Recording Service, New York.  The reverse of the disc is blank.

We have three more excerpts of "Pick and Pat" in the coming weeks.
