Sally in Hollywoodland - Audition

March 24th, 2013

Here's an unusual bit of radio and Hollywood history, an audition for a children's radio series based on popular animated cartoons.

Sally in Hollywoodland - Audition label

"Sally in Hollywoodland" was recorded June 3, 1947, and is a half-hour kid's show based on the Walter Lantz cartoons, featuring Woody Woodpecker, Andy Panda and the gang.  The audition includes announcements on how the show could be sold to potential sponsors.

I've done quite a bit of searching on this one, but haven't turned up anything on the origins of the audition or information on the company that produced it.  The show didn't appear to actually go into production and syndication.

The program was transferred from an original 6000 Sunset Radio Center (Hollywood) vinyl transcription disc, matrix numbers SUN-535A and SUN-536B.

If anyone has some more info on this one, I'd appreciated hearing from you!
