The Monticello Party Line - Pgm 716

November 19th, 2010

Now another previously uncirculated episode of "The Monticello Party Line", program 716, originally broadcast November 21, 1938.   Susan, Clem and Curly take stock of their situation after the automobile accident and we hear once again about the offer for the Sara and Aggie recipe book and sample of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin.

transcription label

The show was dubbed direct from an original vinyl Flexite transcription pressed by Columbia, matrix number 012.

    Years ago, when I first saw one of these transcription labels on the Internet, I’d wondered if I’d ever get to hear an episode — and you have a whole bunch of them. They’re much cornier than I’d expected, but at least one of them will be modifed into an ESL listening exercise with some trivia about American life during that year. (With the 1949 Farm Fresh Market transcription, the class nearly fell over when I told them that the minimum wage had just been raised in 1949 to 75 cents from 40 cents.)

    BTW, is this the last of them? I’m storing the episodes on my computer. If there aren’t any more, then I can transfer them to a disc.
