Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar

Post by greybelt on 4/24/2013, 3:11 pm

This is a question for otrwash, mainly, but others may know the answer.... is the YTJD 1953-05-05 "The Blackmail Matter" recording that's circulating a rehearsal or one of those "unedited drama recordings" to the best of your knowledge? It seems to be a rehearsal, but I have not heard any flubs in my listening that might indicate it is even that.

The script cover page provides what additional production information is available.
Note: that TWO shows were Taped on the Same Day.

1953-05-05 The Blackmail Matter, according to the TIF file of the script, was taped on
March 16, 1953.

It was edited on April 28, 1953, and broadcast on May 5, 1953. On the front page of
the script, it states that it was written for Wrigley's Spearmint Chewing Gum.

If you listen to the beginning of the show, that opening has always bugged me the way
that the word enjoyment is used for both the gum & the program, but it is like the all
of the other openings around that time frame.

My best guess would be that the original taping occurred in March and any changes were
made in April, which could account for the change in studio times, and the fact that it states
2nd show at the top left hand corner, and then broadcast completely on May 5th.

I have listened to the show in it's entirety, and I can find nothing missing and with a time of
29:53, it doesn't leave much room for error.

Best regards

I don't think so.

"The Blackmail Matter" was the Second Show taped on 03/16/1953.
"The Costain Matter" was the First Show taped on 03/16/1953.

The Cast and Music time adjustments on the script cover page
of "The Blackmail Matter" were to attempt to reflect that it would be taped
AFTER "The Costain Matter" on 03/16/1953.

Thanks otrwashh. I wasn't aware about the other episode being taped on the same day.

I believe that this episode is the final product that aired on May 5th.

Greetings folks -- we seem to have survived Hurricane Matthew, but in important road near us didn't. It seems like a nefarious occurrence to me... perhaps we should call our favorite expense account padder to investigate...

A few days of upgrades ahead!

I'll be away for the next few days, and it turns out that our favorite expense account fictionalist will be, too! He'll be a lot busier than I will be...

AFRTS re-issued many of its recordings. This is a different version of the one that was in the OTRR set -- same story, better sound

Your continued support for the improvement of this series has made a huge difference. Years ago I would collect a hundred shows before finding one I would want to even play. An AM quality show was a rare find and it would play that night. Now, OTR is a smorgasbord of excellent sounding series shared by you and so many of the collectors here at the club. Thank you for all your effort spent collecting and especially for sharing it with us.

I second otrhead's reflections on what the Cobalt Club has done to improve the quality of the OTR episodes, and especially greybelt. I don't know where he finds the time.

Great job cheers
