The Make Believe Ballroom was originally created by Martin Block in 1935 and hosted by Block until 1954 when he left the show.  The series continued on for decades.  Despite its longevity there are not many examples of the series available for listening.  Here are three Voice of America broadcasts of The Make Believe Ballroom which are generally available and a scarce 1940 broadcast celebrating the show's fifth anniversary.  I've uploaded those four programs and scripts for the commercial continuity used on the show during 1942 and 1943.

Also, here are a couple of interesting youtube items.  First is a 1988 CBS Sunday segment tracing the history of The Make Believe Ballroom and the second is a movie short, part of a series, hosted by Block, titled Martin Block's Musical Merry-Go-Round.

I may have three more shows, one from 1947, one from 1949 and one from 1950. I hope they're not duplicates of what you've posted.
