You're very welcome...

I'm missing July 2, 1945, which is a tribute to Ernie Pyle... do hope this isn't the place where our batting average becomes imperfect!

Great Job on this guys! I've picked up a bunch of fills that I somehow missed when they were originally posted at the old ***sniff, sniff*** Cobalt Club

There's one "available" show I'm missing that I can't seem to find anywhere...it is listed on Goldin's site as:

Vox Pop. November 2, 1942. CBS net. Sponsored by: Bromo Seltzer. The program originates from the Army Medical Corps, Carlisle Brarracks, Pennsylvania. A remote interview is scheduled from Europe with Robert Trout, but the circuit does not appear. An interesting recruiting announcement is made for pilots who have failed the army physical. Pilots are needed as instructors, transport flying and other non-combat duties (and presumably require less physical fitness). Parks Johnson, Warren Hull, Ernest Chappell (announcer). 20:37. Audio condition: Good to very good. Incomplete

Anybody here have it?
