Your Movietown Radio Theatre - Pgm 19

October 28th, 2009

Here's another lost/uncirculated episode in the Ziv syndicated drama series, "Your Movietown Radio Theatre", dated by Goldin to circa 1947-48.

Program 19 is something of a mystery play, "Goodbye My Love" and stars Lurene Tuttle.  Her character tells the story of her husband, an up and coming novelist, who receives a strange telegram from another writer, inviting him to collaborate on a new book.  As usual, the opening announcements and commercials aren't included, since these would be read by your local announcer.

The show was transferred from original ZIV vinyl transcription set, matrix numbers UR 174878 and UR 174879 AU1.  The disc suffered water damage, obscuring the label, so there's no photo and I've run the file through click reduction software to improve the sound of this rather scratched disc set.

updated 10.29.2009 - corrected spelling of "Lurene Tuttle"

    I don’t have a reference book in front of me right now, but I’m quite sure her first name is spelled “Lurene”. I recall one episode of Sam Spade where there’s a mention of a ship named Lurene; Sam spells it out for Effie (played by Ms. Tuttle, natch), and she pauses and says “That’s very pretty.”

    You’re correct, Sir - give that man a silver dollar!

    For those like me, checking against their existing holdings, OTRR gives this program the number fourteen (14).
