World Program Service - Disc 191

December 10th, 2009

If you've been listening to the World Program Service Christmas dramas the past couple of weeks on the blog, you might wonder what other kinds of material are contained on these station library discs.

transcription label

Listener Micheal Utz donated a fun one to my collection.  World Program Service Disc 191, "World Commercial Jingles", is a fun series of generic vocal jingles that might have been used as part of commercials at a local station in the 40s, and 50s.  The cuts, repeated in pairs on the disc, are for a beverage, ice cream, and drive-in movie theaters.

The cuts were transferred from original World Program Service red vinyl vertical cut transcription, matrix number BB-50213-A1.

Thanks again, Michael!
