The Grantland Rice Story - Pgm GRS-37

June 25th, 2010

Jimmy Powers takes up "The Grantland Rice Story" again this week, giving us more anecdotes and stories from the colorful life of the famous sportswriter in this mid-1950s syndicated Thesaurus series.  We're up to program GRS-37 in the series, "Turkey Hunting", where Rice talks about getting in the great outdoors fishing and hunting.

The show was transferred from original vinyl RCA Thesaurus 12" transcription, matrix number F7-MR-5227-1A.

If you'd like to read more about Granny Rice and some research on stations that carried the show, check out Dee's illustrated in-progress log of "The Grantland Rice Story" at the Digital Deli website.

Thanks for the heads-up on the log, Dee!
