Resolution of the YTJD "The Ellen Dear Matter" Audition

Post by otrwashh on 4/13/2013, 9:43 pm

Resolution of the Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar
"The Ellen Dear Matter" Audition - 01/29/1957

While on my March OTR Research Trip, I uncovered the following:

My research of CBS network documentation has uncovered that
"The Ellen Dear Matter" Audition of 01/29/1957 was not a talent audition,
but rather a "Commercial Audition" of commercials for potential
advertisers.

The products included food, cleaning agents, and cigarettes.

In all probability this audition show was not broadcast, but
made available to the potential advertisers.

I reposted the above information here, because I placed the initial post
on Cobalt Club just a day or two before the site crashed.


The research trip was very successful.

I found lots of new information on several series.
Two new series broadcast logs
Jeff Regan, Investigator
and
Rogers of the Gazette
will be posted in late April or early May
on:

I have already submitted the following articles to the
Metro Washington OTR Club newsletter,
the Radio Recall. These articles are:
"Debunking The Myths About Jeff Regan, Investigator:
An Exercise in Old-time Radio Research."
(Will be published in June)
and
"The 1955 Auditions For the Role of Johnny Dollar"
(Will be published in August)


Signing off for now,

Thanks again otrwash! I'm looking forward to your info about the Jeff R series.

John Abbott was very happy to hear about your Ellen Dear information. He's posted many of the details on his "errata" sheet, which details many of the issues for those who have not been following the topic.

I can't post a link because the forum is new, but go to John's Hume Alumni page humealumni dot org and follow the links to his YTJD book

I'm also pleased to report that two "missing" Bailey YTJD have surfaced!
1957-06-02 The Loss of Memory Matter
1957-06-23 The Parley Barron Matter

I so very much hope that the database from The Cobalt Club can be recovered. There was a huge amount of OTR info in there. And a ton of memories as well.

I thought about adding an area for OTR logs. But there are several very in depth sites which already cover that ground. But then again, it's not out of the realm of possibility.

Thanks Guys for all the hard work you do. And Greybelt, is there any indication if those two newly discovered Johnny Dollars are going to become generally available?

Hi Greybelt:

I imagine that by a missing episode, you mean a network version of
1957-06-02 The Loss of Memory Matter.

We do have a AFRTS version now. The other episode would be a welcome addition.

Best regards

They're AFRS versions -- I'll get them posted some how some way soon when I finish a bunch of business travel things that have been grabbing my time.

Yours truly,
Johnny Greybelt
