I'm at a genealogy conference in Sacramento, today and tomorrow. After listening to one of the presentations, I upped my presence on My Heritage, and started searching some of the people in our family. Here's something interesting I found -- I'm sure this is EDC's dad, Bill Ortman. Unfortunately, the file came as a .pdf, so I can't reproduce it (it's not a .jpg). but here's what it says:
"Among the tid-bits we have picked up about some Saturday NBC programs is that Colonel Goodbody and Judge Gordon will dedicate the 9:30 AM food program to Georgia and will embarrass the Atlantans by revealing that they chew 50 carloads of sugar cane annually and that a boy soprano, Billy Ortman, will be heard on the Keys to Happiness program at 10:45 a.m."
This is from April 22, 1932. Dad would have just turned seven.
I'm surprised, because I thought Dad was exclusively on CBS, but here he is on NBC. Oh, by the way, this is from a San Antonio, Texas, newspaper! More to come --
