Farm Fresh Audition, May 9, 1949

February 13th, 2009 · Comments

Up next on the blog is an interesting little local program of special interest to our listeners in the Southwest.

"Farm Fresh Audition", likely titled "Ghiz Quiz", is a quiz show recorded in a grocery store in Pheonix, Arizona by radio station KTAR.  In the show, housewives going about their shopping try their hand at winning groceries at the Farm Fresh Market #3 in downtown Phoenix by answering trivia questions about Arizona.

I'm not sure if this program was actually broadcast since it's labeled as an audition.  Anyone know what the phrase "Dubbed FM Wire" might mean on the disc label?

KTAR, according to Wikipedia, was originally licensed as KFAD in 1929 and changed their call sign to KTAR in 1930.  The station was the hub of the Arizona Broadcasting System, which fed programs to various stations around the state, from 1939 to 1975.  The station's been through a number of ownership changes over the years; it's currently a sports-talk station broadcasting programs from ESPN radio and acting as the flagship station for the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Diamondbacks and other area teams.

The show was transferred from an original KTAR lacquer.
