Transcription Mystery Disc # 174


This is a 10-inch Soundcraft transcription disc. It spins at 78 RPM and has an outer edge start. It is clearly labeled and dated and for once in clearly printed letters "RICH & MARILYN STORIES & SONG 12-30-46.  The recorded Side A on New years even and Side B on New Years day.

Rich & Marilyn
 
The recording is peculiar though. The father, mother and children act out rehearsed and scripted comedies. The level of dedication is unusual, leaving me to wonder if one of them might have been active in at least local theater, if not radio theater. Dad has a bit of an odd sense of humor to say the least.
