Your Movietown Radio Theatre - Pgm 109

April 22nd, 2010

And now a fun little episode of the ZIV syndicated series, "Your Movietown Radio Theatre".

Program 109 in the series is "The Luck of Adam", a story about an advertising man who makes a bet with a newspaper woman about how gullible people can be.  The show features Cesar Romero, Barbara Woodell, Herb Butterfield, and Daws Butler.  There's no opening announcement in the transcription - that would have been provided by your local announcer.

The show was digitized from original an ZIV vinyl transcription set, matrix numbers UR 166275 AU1 and UR 166276 AU1.  Goldin dates the show to 1948.

Sorry, but no label scan on this one - the disc was water damaged and the label is obscured.

    Here it is in Chicago’s radio listings:

    April 23, 1948: 9:30-W-G-N-Hollywood Theater: Caesar Romero in “The Luck of Adam”.

    It was opposite Slapsy Maxie guesting on Bill Stern’s Sports show on WMAQ.

    Aaah. Another mild and unobjectionable drama (just like all the others) to add to my stash of YMRT.

    lol … “unobjectable drama” … that pretty much describes many of these Ziv anthology shows…
