Here’s another episode of “This Is Your FBI”, taken from a group of tape syndication masters I obtained a few months ago. For more information on the series and this set of tapes, see my original post that started off this series of posts.
Our program this week is “The Harvest”, originally broadcast September 28, 1951 on ABC and sponsored by the Equitable Life Assurance Society. Two drifters hold up a bank messenger and hide to among a group of migrant farm workers. Your narrator is William Woodson and the cast features Stacy Harris, Alice Backes, Tony Barrett, Ted de Corsia, Sam Edwards, Wally Maher, Victor Rodman, and Harry Rosenthal, according to Goldin. In this syndication version, the commercials are omitted.
Our mp3 was transferred from a 10” reel to reel tape dubbing master running at 15 inches per second. The sound, as other shows in this group of tapes, is quite remarkable, dubbed from the original 50s tape masters of the series for this 1970s syndication run of the show.
