Hobo County Classics
Dec 6 @ 7:00 pm – 7:30 pm

These tracks comprise the original collection of Homesteader Radio, salvaged from platters and cylinders issued very early in the 20th century.

Jubilee
Dec 6 @ 8:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Jubilee was produced from 1942 to 1953 as a morale-building service for African-American troops and filled an important gap in the musical history of radio by presenting performers given short shrift by the networks. It was transcribed for distribution to military service personnel and was not heard on domestic radio. The show’s War Department status exempted the performing artists from the union-mandated recording bans of 1942-43 and 1947-48, and many episodes feature unique performances from guests like Jimmie Lunceford, Earl Hines, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Jordan, Lionel Hampton, Andy Kirk, and many others. Most of the shows were recorded before live audiences in Los Angeles with host Ernie “Bubbles” Whitman.

The Damon Runyon Theater
Dec 7 @ 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm

Alfred Damon Runyon (October 4, 1880 – December 10, 1946) was an American newspaperman and short-story writer. He spun humorous and sentimental tales of gamblers, hustlers, actors, and gangsters. His distinctive vernacular style is known as “Runyonese”: a mixture of formal speech and colorful slang, almost always in present tense, and always devoid of contractions. The Damon Runyon Theatre dramatized 52 of Runyon’s works in 1949, and for these the protagonist was given the name “Broadway”.
