Curtis Springer for Acidine - Pgm 3
Now we continue our run of the first five episodes of “Curtis Springer”, a daily fifteen minute show featuring commentary by the “King of Quacks” with his advice on the “facts about life”. You can read more about Springer in my first post on the series.
In this episode talks about two “dizzy blondes” he overheard at a restaurant talking about doping up kids they were supposed to be babysitting when they went out for a hot night of dancing. He didn’t intervene or report the conversation because he would be wasting his time trying to give advice to someone who doesn’t want it. This syndicated series was sponsored by Acidine.
The mp3 you’re listening to was transferred direct from a translucent blue one-sided 16” celluloid Brunswick transcription, matrix number 9151, pressed by Flexo, a manufacturer of promotional and radio-related discs made with experimental plastics in the early 1930s.
Again, I think these may be the only surviving radio programs by Springer from the 1930s.
