And now, another in our twenty episode run of “Louie’s Hungry Five”, an early 30s radio comedy serial syndicated by WGN-The Tribune Company.
Louie and the group are staying at a hotel, getting ready for their trip to South America. In program 312, intended for broadcast October 13, 1931, they plan on leaving in a few days, but Emil has been invited to a house warming party by his girlfriend and wants the trip postponed. You can see a jpeg of the original local announcer’s cue sheet for the program here.
Our mp3 was transferred from two twelve inch Columbia Sound-On-Disc 78 rpm transcriptions, matrix numbers 233288 and 233289.
