The Sandlotters - January 21, 1948

February 5th, 2010

Periodically over the next few months, I'll be posting some curious local shows that came to me in a single group of laquers.  These all date from December, 1947 and January, 1948 from different stations around the country, so I think they may have been entries in some type of competition for an award or connected with some other event.  The first disc in this set, "Mystery Castle", a local kid's show from Ohio was posted last month on the blog.

In this post, we hear a curious little sports program from WXYZ, Detroit, "The Sandlotters".  This episode was broadcast January 21, 1948; the show includes local scores and a short drama about a sportsman's unusual war experience.  The show includes commercials for a Detroit-area lumber company.

The show was transferred from an original American Broadcasting Company/WXYZ lacquer dub transcription.  It appears to be a previously lost/uncircualted show.
