Special Assignment - Pgm 25

May 13th, 2017

“Special Assignment” was an unusual syndicated series from the late 30s and early 40s from the Associated Press that dramatizes reporters pursuing big stories.  Less than a dozen episodes in the series appear to be circulating among collectors.

Program 25 in the series looks at the story of William Miller and his reporting work on the famous Floyd Collins incident.  The host of the series is Oliver Gramling. Goldin dates the episode to 1941.

The program was produced by AP Radio Productions, 50 Rockefeller Plaza, New York.  Our mp3 was transferred direct from an original sixteen inch AP red vinyl transcription disc, matrix number 10-0106.
