American Radio Newsreel - Pgm 7

June 10th, 2017

We continue our look at the obscure pre-War syndicated series “American Radio Newsreel” with a previously lost episode.

Program 7 probably dates to January or February 1940.  Delores Laurell recounts her harrowing escape from Poland as it fell to the Nazis.  Jack Dempsy discusses fighters, past and present.  Edith Rogers Dahl fights for her release of her husband from a Spanish prison.  Then we go to Hollywood for short interviews with actors and actresses, including Claire Trevor, Adrian Aimes, Eddie Lowe, and Beverly Roberts.  Finally, the editor of the Pathe News is interviewed about how he gets his war pictures.

Our program was transferred from an original sixteen inch Ayers-Prescott shellac transcription.
