The Police Reporter - Pgm 17

September 19th, 2010

Hope you're enjoying our little quarter hour of gruesome true crime in "The Police Reporter".  Program 17 looks at the 1928 New York case of Henry S. Gaw who was murdered by "Texas" Jim Baker in the Guggenheim Brothers Chemical Laboratory.  There's an announcement at the end of the show inviting listeners to write in to their local station if they enjoy the program.

I was able to dig up some vintage material on this particular case - an article from the Rock Hill (South Carolina) Herald from December 28, 1928, an LA Times story from the same date, and another from the NY Times.

The show was digitized from an original shellac Radio Release, Ltd transcription pressed by Allied Recording in Hollywood, matrix number A-1120.  The show is previously uncirculated.
