June 29, 1932: The Premier of Vic and Sade on NBC

June 29, 1932: NBC Blue network had its premier airing of Vic and Sade.

Vic and Sade was written by Paul Rhymer. It was an American daily radio program that broadcast from 1932 to 1944, then intermittently until 1946, and was briefly adopted to television in 1949 and again in 1957.

Vic and Sade became one of the most popular series of its kind along its 14 years broadcast on radio. The program has got many critics and complement for its success. 

Vic and Sade  usually aired for 15 minutes as with un-continually stories.  The main role was known as ""radio's home folks,"" were featured Art Van Harvey as Victor Rodney Gook, Bernadine Flynn as his wife Sade and Bill Idelson as the adopted son.

The family lived on Virginia Avenue. The story was plotted naturally and ease, and Rhymer also put some humorous dialog that was delivered with a subtleness.  The program described most outrageous events seem commonplace and normal.

1946 Great Crepitation Fart Contest

Not for the faint of heart, here is the remarkable 1946 Crepitation (Fart) Contest (part of the 1946 News Broadcasts Collection ). You'll enjoy the fart-off between champion Englishman Lord Windsmear, and  challenger, Australian Paul Boomer who had stowed aboard a cabbage freighter. The hilarious comedy recording was apparently created a spoof by two Canadian radio sportscasters in 1946, but this 15 minute recording definitely has some gems in it.  Apparently they made several copies, but it was not for distribution. The recording was copied again and again on disc and reel to reel tape. It was distributed underground and played in dark rooms and back alleys around the world.
