China 1943

Here's an early 1943 production "Know Your Allies" about China.  At the time we even had stations there.  Those would be stories I'd love to hear.

Know Your Allies - China


Times sure have changed.  No credits on the production but it sounds a lot like a young Marvin Miller

Welcome

This whole thing happens because we have a story.  If you saved any tapes or disks, please share.  There's a lot of people who'd like to hear them and I could certainly make a high quality cd transfer for your collection.

What was your AFRTS/AFN story?  What did it mean to you?  Why?

Thanks for visiting, if you enjoy it tell a friend!

Best

Jingles, the Voice of Home.


I loved this jingle package.  I was playing it before gold at SCN in the 1980s.  I've been looking for it for years and it turned up on the end of a production reel from AFKN in the 1960s.
