Southland Echoes, Pgm 49-6

June 12th, 2008

Note: Listeners may find this program offensive due to racial stereotyping themes.

Another circa 1949 episode of "Southland Echoes", sponsored by Black Draught Laxative and syndicated by the Nelson Chesman Company of Chatanooga, Tennessee.

Episode 49-6 features the Homeland Harmony Quartet singing "He Bore It All" and "When the Saints Go Marching In".  The Jones Sisters perform some yodeling in "Liza Jane" and the ballad "They Took the Stars Out of Heaven".  Blackface comedians Jam-Up and Honey talk about farms.

This program was transferred from an original vinyl transcription disc.  Unfortunately, there's a bad scratch that runs through the first five minutes or so of the program.  Also, this show has an unusual technical problem seen in some of the programs from the series - there's a strange "drop out" in the sound near the end of the number "They Took the Stars Out of Heaven", so this isn't a problem with your MP3 player or the MP3 file.

I'll be posting a couple of shows from this series about once a month.
