In the Corner with Dan Hughes


Aug 20, 2012

This week, another show that had a tremendous audience in its day (it lasted for 17 years), but is pretty much forgotten now.

It was called Vox Pop, which means "Voice of the People." 

Each week, the hosts would have bizarre conversations with people chosen at random, asking strange questions and awarding them small amount of cash if they could properly answer a quiz question. 

This episode, from September 9, 1939, was recorded live at the 1939 New York World's Fair.
