Linda’s First Love - Pgm 3385 - January 20, 1950

May 13th, 2017

Finally on the blog this week, an almost forgotten syndicated daytime soap opera, “Linda’s First Love”.

Despite being a program syndicated on disc during the prime years of old time radio, on the air from 1939 to 1950, only less than ten episodes of the series circulate among collectors.

What happened to all those discs?

Program 3385 was originally heard January 20, 1950.  Linda and Danny rush to the train depot to find out why Elaine is suddenly leaving.  Is she really in love with Danny?  The show is sponsored by Kroger’s Spotlight Coffee.  This appears to be a previously lost episode of the series.

The show was produced by the Ralph H. Jones Company.  Our mp3 was transferred from an original sixteen inch red vinyl Muzak transcription disc.

Next week, another previously lost episode of the series from the other side of the disc.
