Here are a couple of examples of very different syndicated series of 5 minute fillers

First a series of weird tales commercials and announcements were added at the studio

Now here is something unique, an episode from a 1938 series syndicated by the Phoenix Sunrise Club, which was half pretty good country-western music and half dramatized stories of Arizona history, supposedly written by a noted historian. This week we discuss happenings at the O.K. corral.

With this show, I'm reminded how we need to get on our chaps and head on over to the L-7 Ranch. Since Scout Binkie and I unearthed it in its original incarnation, I'll hitch it on up to the stars this weekend.

Now here is a real rarity, the Gracie Fields Show. Ms Fields did a summer series covering Bergen McCarthy in 1944. I have other episodes of this show if anyone needs them, although not in quite this pristine condition.

Thank you Theo - I also love 'our Gracie'. Since crossing the pond I have found she was called that by all of the allied forces.

I have the 44-07-09, 44-07-23 and 44-07-30 shows. If you are missing any of these let me know. If you have any other than these will you please post them.

I believe that the dates of 44-07-09, 44-07-23 and 44-07-30 are spurious for the shows that are circulating as #5, #7 and #9.. The syndicated shows #5, #7 and #9 are in circulation but those are different from the shows with known dates. Looking at radiogoldindex we see there is a show #5

The Gracie Fields Show. July 9, 1944. Program #5. NBC net origination, AFRS rebroadcast. The first tune is, "Bless 'Em All." Guest Jack Carson casts Gracie in a gangster movie. An American boy calls on a British girl for a date. Next week's guest is William Bendix. Gracie Fields, Jack Carson, Lou Bring and His Orchestra, Bill Goodwin. 30:11. Audio condition: Excellent. Complete.

and a syndicated show #5

The Gracie Fields Show. Program #5. MGM syndication. Commercials added locally. The first tune is a Maori song. A great performer doing everything from English folk tunes to, "Annie Get Your Gun." Gracie Fields, Phil Green and His Orchestra. 27:03. Audio condition: Very good. Otherwise complete.

If you check your show #5 it likely is the one with a Maori song and has nothing in it about a gangster movie.

Likewise RGI shows The Gracie Fields Show. Program #7. MGM syndication. Commercials added locally. The first tune is, "Feudin', Fightin' Fussin'." Gracie Fields, Bernard Braden (announcer), The Keynotes, Billy Trenet and His Orchestra, Phil Green and His Orchestra. 27:55. Audio condition: Very good to excellent. Otherwise complete.

7209. The Gracie Fields Show. Program #8. MGM syndication. Commercials added locally. The first tune is, "Play A Simple Melody." Gracie Fields, Bernard Braden (announcer), The Keynotes, Billy Trenet and His Orchestra, Phil Green and His Orchestra. 27:59. Audio condition: Very good to excellent. Otherwise complete.

Again with no dates. I believe that someone incorrectly extrapolated dates for the syndicated shows based on the broadcast show numbers and added those to Otter.

Actually the 44-07-09 show I have is the Jack Carson AFRS rebraodcast of that date, with 'Bless 'em All' as the opening number.

The other two are with Bernard Braden so I'll change the dates on those to unknown dates per RGI.

Now that we have sorted out which Gracie Fields shows are which and who has what, here's one that apparently you do not have:

The Gracie Fields Show. August 6, 1944. NBC net. Sponsored by: Chase and Sanborn (commercials deleted). 8:00 P.M. The first tune is, "I Never Cried So Much In All My Life." Guest Roy Rogers plays a skit as a soldier visiting England, with Gracie. He calls a rapid square dance. Gracie Fields, Bill Goodwin (announcer), Roy Rogers, Marlin Hurt (as "Beulah"), Lou Bring and His Orchestra.

Another rarity. This program aired from 1933-38, sponsored by Princess Pat cosmetics. Only about 10 of these are known to exist and this is the only one I have ever seen.

I don't mean to be a suck-up, but the Hoover shows really pick up the dirt of the time. Thanks, Bobby.
