Sports Answer Man - Pgm 17

May 14th, 2008

Here's another oddity that I don't have much information on.  It's "The Sports Answer Man" a syndicated program from Sherman Productions and pressed in red vinyl on the Disco label (no relation to the later musical trend of the 1970s, I presume).  Based on the content, the show appears to date from circa 1945-46.

The show is hosted by France Laux, who was the announcer for the Browns and Cardinals over KMOX and who called World Series and All Star Games on CBS in the 1930s.  In this edition, the Sports Answer Man takes questions on the oldest golf tournament in the country, the most outstanding mile runner in the world and the origination of basketball.
