Please don’t miss the special message at the end of the post. I need your help identifying a show.
This program, Guest Star Time (not to be confused with Guest Star), was sponsored by The Sister Elizabeth Kenney Foundation. This discs for this program are unique in that someone’s face (Sister Kenney herself, I’m betting) is printed on the label, something I’ve not seen anywhere else in our collection.
No specific dates are printed on the labels of these shows, except, as you see above, that this is their “1952 appeal.” (Not even Goldin has a specific date.)
Starring Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians, with vocals by Kenny Gardner, Kenny Martin; Fred Kreitzer, Buddy Brennan, pianos
First Song Noodlin’ Rag
Well, the announcer says it’s “Noodlin’ Rag” and Kenny Gardner seems to be singing “Doodlin’ Rag”. I ended up searching for the sheet music and found that the announcer is correct, because here it is in “red and white”. And there’s really no question since Guy Lombardo’s picture is there!
Starring Lawrence Welk and his Orchestra, with vocals by Roberta Lynn, Larry Hooper and the Sparklers
First Song Josephine
Don’t miss this one if you remember or like the Welk style. It’s sure there, no question.
I think you’ll be pleased with the nice sound on these shows.
So here is the puzzle, folks. I’m hoping you can help.
We have an AFRS episode of the series “The Saint,” but I am unable to give it a date or a title. Here is a sample.
It is not Vincent Price in the title role, nor is it Tom Conway or Barry Sullivan (going by the sound of the voice). I’m otherwise unable to identify the lead actor. So this might be a lost episode, considering that no other transcriptions of others as The Saint have made it to digital format.
So this is a point where I turn to our downloaders. Can any of you offer help in identifying it? Please leave a reply in our comments below.
By the way, this disc was only in fair shape, so I am putting in work getting rid of noise, by hand. (Some sections that are very quiet are only quiet now because of that work.)
You’ll hear 5 seconds of dialogue (and hear that the lead performer is definitely not any of the actors I named above), then you’ll hear the same 5 seconds after cleanup. This 5 seconds took me about 10 minutes, so you can imagine how long it might take me to clean the entire episode.
Please leave a comment below if you have access to information that will help identify this episode.
Thanks, and please enjoy the free downloads.
