Canary Pet Show - Pgm 10D
Back again on the blog this week are the charming singing birds in the “Canary Pet Show”, sponsored by Hartz Mountain pet foods.
The first song on episode 10D is “Shine On, Harvest Moon.” The organ accompaniment is by Porter Heath and David Baum on violin. We hear short dramatic commercials for the Hartz Mountain Balanced Diet for Birds and Doggie Yummies treats. Your announcer is Harry Birch.
Our show was transferred from an original sixteen inch red vinyl United Broadcasting Company, Chicago, transcription. The program appears to be previously lost.
I want to again give my deepest thanks to Jerry Heandiges and David Lennick for their gift of these previously lost discs to my collection. I’ve been looking for original transcriptions of the “Canary Pet Show” ever since I started collecting.
Next week, we’ll hear two very special episodes of the series. Stay tuned!
