Vass Family - Pgm 57

April 16th, 2008 · Comments

Today we have a fun little five minute musical program featuring the Vass Family on the air for Alka Seltzer. This show and one in the next entry are taken from an original vinyl NBC syndication disc pressed by RCA, matrix number MS 03444. (The other side of the disc contains two five minute Alka Seltzer shows by the Hoosier Hot Shots that I'll post later.)

The Vass Family appeared on the National Barn Dance and a few other NBC programs in the late 1930s. According to the announcer, the group hails from South Carolina. In this show, the group sings "Romance Runs in the Family" and "When the White Azealeas Start Blooming" and help out with the Alka Seltzer ads.
