Here's December 7, 1942;

Vox Pop. December 7, 1942. CBS net. Sponsored by: Bromo Seltzer. The program originates from the Alameda Naval Air Station, California. A program to "Remember Pearl Harbor." Sailors tell what they were doing when the Japs attacked and how they felt. From KGMB in Honolulu, Webley Edwards (who described the attack as it was happening) with Alexa Davidson, the station's "program traffic manager" remember what it was like. She's given a hat, purse and a pair of shoes. Near the end of the program, the audience chants, "Avenge Pearl Harbor, Avenge Pearl Harbor, Avenge Pearl Harbor!" Fascinating listening. Parks Johnson, Warren Hull, Webley Edwards, Alexa Davidson, Ernest Chappell (announcer). 29:39.
