A Fels Naptha Sponsored Podcast

from home town sketches
Today, we present the flip side of a disc heard last week on the blog featuring the series “Home Town Sketches”. This rare program was syndicated circa 1936 and sponsored by Fels-Naptha laundry soap.
“Home Town Sketches” was heard four times each week and took a light-hearted look at life in the small town of Centerville. The plots centered around the owner of the radio station, his family and friends. Program 50 in the series takes the form of a “broadcast” from Lem Weatherby’s station FELS, where he gives us news about Captain Alberry and Anna Watts wedding, a commercial for a local furniture dealer and mortician, and a poem for a sick shut-in.
