Safe at Home - Pgm 5

April 2nd, 2017

And now, another entry in the forgotten public service series “Safe at Home”, syndicated by the Bureau of Health Education of the American Medical Association.  Although the discs have handwritten dates in the late 50s from a local station, the program might have been recorded some years before that.

Program 5 in the series is titled “Safety in Toys”.  Fred V. Hein, PhD, educational consultant of the Bureau, and announcer Sterling discuss how toys that are chosen or given to children as “hand me downs” be age appropriate and safe for their stage of development.  The music is by the Riger Steele Trio.  The show was directed by Martin Magner and written by Harriet H. Hester.

The show was transferred from a beat up 16” vinyl transcription from WOR-Mutual’s Recording Division.  The matrix number is 97718-5.
