You’re listening to clips from the 100 hour marathon co-hosted by WPRB’s Program Director Paul Dunn ’58 and Head Announcer Dick Morgan ’58 back in 1956.
Dunn says: “We had done many two-man shows and decided that a publicity-creating broadcast was necessary to tell the world that WPRB was back on the air after its then-permitted summer hiatus.”
The broadcast began at noon the Friday, September 14th, and finished, one hundred hours later, on Tuesday at 4.
There are some real gems in here, including some funky Bulgarian jazz and about twenty minutes of ‘echo chamber’ tomfoolery. The piece also features a bunch of clips from Dunn’s ’57 Sunday evening show, “Paul’s Place”.
