205-140421 In the Old-Time Radio Corner - The Quiz Kids

Some of you may know that in another life, I am a treasure hunter.  And sometimes my hobbies collide. 

I once found a 1935 Radio Orphan Annie decoder wheel while I was searching for old coins with a metal detector.  And this past weekend, I found another OTR treasure while perusing an old bookstore.

I picked up a first-edition copy of The Quiz Kids, a 1947 book written by the chief researcher for the show.  And the book was signed by the author, the host of the radio show, and three of the quiz kids themselves.  Hog Heaven!

And since I haven't run a Quiz Kids episode yet, now seems to be the perfect time. 

In fact, this episode  was aired on March 9, 1947 - the day after my book was signed at the autograph party in Chicago.
