You’ll be pleased to know that these appear to be an unavailable in any encoded format.
This encoding was done a while ago, but we’ve held onto it until we were ready to make it available to you, just like the museum held onto all these discs.
All of the work here was done by volunteers, who can continue giving these to you only if we can raise enough money to keep our museum building.
Guest Star 343
October 18, 1953
Starring Gordon MacRae, with Carmen Dragon and his Orchestra
First Song If I Loved You
Dragon and MacRae both were performing together, at the time of this broadcast, in the radio series “The Railroad Hour.”
If you like their performances here, you should check out the series, which is mostly half-hour versions of contemporary stage musicals.
Guest Star 344
October 25, 1953
Starring Connee Boswell, with Harry Sosnick and the Savings Bond Orchestra
First Song Concha de Amor (orchestra)
Boswell’s first song is “I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter.” The announcer mentions that her second song is from her “new album.” Does anyone know if the guest vocals here are all from outside recordings, or if some were done especially for these broadcasts? (The “Savings Bond Orchestra” recordings seem to be new, but I’m not sure.)
