Tommy Bartlett's "Welcome Travelers" Radio Show

Hello,

I am an independent researcher in the process of gathering resources for a book project I am working on. My research has lead me to search for a recording of a radio show broadcast of Tommy Bartlett's "Welcome Travelers".

The person I am researching is named "Chauncey ‘the bear hunter’ Bottum", and I have a source that documents that he did in fact appear on an episode of that show as well as on NBCs News of the World, and The Standard Oil Hour. Unfortunately, I have no idea of the broadcast dates. I know it’s “a shot in the dark”, but I thought I would write and at least give the group a try.

Anybody have any recordings of “Welcome Travelers” or the others in your extensive collections? If not, might you know of other sources/collectors that may have recordings of those shows? Might there be documentation somewhere that would tell me who appeared on what broadcast? I realize it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack, and that the needle may not even exist, but at least I can say I tried. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Finding a copy of this source(s) is very important to me and my project.

Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you.


Sincerely yours,

Kurt M. Kuhlman

I'm looking for the audio or footage file from October 18th, 1954 "Welcome Travelers" show. The name specific I need would be "Dinninger".

Anyone's help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!
