Vox Pop

Post by BobbyP on 8/12/2018, 5:42 pm

From the Latin vox populi, "voice of the people."

December 14, 1939. The program originates from the Telephone Company Building in New York City; the largest telephone building in the world. Question of the week: What is the average number of telephone calls in the United States per day? Mention is made that the program is being heard on 50 stations. Wally interviews "Pedro," a voice synthesizer, appearing at the World's Fair. He "talks" when an operator presses his keys. Pedro says that he'd like a Julep cigarette! Julep "frosted" cigarettes have been on sale for 3 weeks.

I haven't been around much of late but unless I'm stepping on toes I'll help out here when I can (and when I remember!).

Most of what I have to provide was obtained at Cobalt during a more robust era... if I recall correctly, St. Jack (Doug Hopkinson) and Theo (the late Gary Hart) turned out quite a production. A tip of the hat to those two good friends of OTR, then:

Vox Pop. February 15, 1940. CBS net. Sponsored by: Kentucky Club Tobacco, Julep (mint) Cigarettes). The program originates from Sound Stage #14 at the Paramount Studios in Hollywood. Parks Johnson, Wally Butterworth, Jackie Cooper. 29:21. Audio condition: Very good to excellent. Complete.

Yeah, I was feeling a little bland with no avatar after all this time.  But maybe I was a little too in touch with my feminine side at the time.  I'll work on something more rugged.  (Unless you were referring to the 1938 Zenith, of which I have a similar model in my living room that I broadcast to with a flac-capable Walkman and a low-power transmitter!)  Very Happy

Here's a few more.  Don't have Goldin's 8/1/1940.

Vox Pop. August 8, 1940. CBS net. Sponsored by: Kentucky Club Tobacco, Julep Cigarettes. The program originates on a movie set in Charlottesville, Virginia. Wally Butterworth, Parks Johnson, Fred MacMurray, Sterling Hayden, Marie Wilson. 29:34.
