This week's entries are going up a bit early - things are getting busy with the start of the new school year.
Our run of Jimmy Powers narrating the mid-fifties syndicated series, "The Grantland Rice Story" continues. There are 52 episodes in the whole series, so we have just a few weeks of programs left.
Program GRS-44 in the series is "Irwin S. Cobb-A Man of Heart", where Rice reflects on his old friend who was a reporter and author famous for his stories about colorful Kentucky characters. Cobb's work was the basis for the Will Rogers film, "Judge Priest".
Our show was digitized from an original RCA Thesaurus 12" transcription, matrix number G7-MR-1730-1B.
