The Big Blow

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

In the mid and late 1930’s WNYC began to benefit from the various work relief projects in the field of dramatic arts. The Federal Theatre Project made possible the first continuous series of radio dramas, and this is an excerpt from an adaptation of Theodore Pratt’s stage play "The Big Blow: A Drama of the Hurricane Country."

The recording is unfortunately incomplete.
