98065. Brunswick Brevities. 1929. Syndicated. Sponsored by: Brunswick-Balke-Collander Company of Chicago. The second tune is, "On The Woodpile." The music might be Brunswick records or might be live musicians. The Billy Murray tune makes humorous reference to the Wall Street crash, putting the show past October, 1929. If Norman Brokenshire can't convince you to buy a Brunswick radio, you're just not listening. Harry Breuer (xylophone), Billy Murray, Norman Brokenshire (announcer), Walter Scanlan, The Colonial Club Orchestra. 17:20. Audio condition: Excellent. Apparently complete.
