Kollege of Musical Knowledge - Pgm 129
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill alumnus Kay Kyser joins us on the blog now with his popular musical quiz program, “The Kollege of Musical Knowledge”.
The program originates from Camp Anza in California and was originally broadcast on NBC on April 11, 1945. The first song is “Talk, Talk, Talk” by Dolly Mitchell, which uses a speeded up speech recording as a novelty effect.
The mp3 was dubbed direct from an original Armed Forces Radio Service 16” vinyl transcription; the date is from the disc matrix. Our thanks to blog listener William Harris for his donation of the disc to the collection!
