Re: [ARSCLIST] Looking for Roxy's Gang/Roxy Radio Hour sources

First and foremost, I would like to say hello to the list-- I just joined and going through the archive, I see that there's a lot of interesting discussion on this list with a lot of like-minded people.Many years ago in Edison's attic I found in Theodore Edison's wooden
crates the Roxy's Gang broadcast from the 1928 Radio World's Fair that
included statements by Ford, Firestone, and Edison, and singing by
Gladys Rice and possibly Douglas Stanbury. For my project of the LP
Edison Speaks I didn't need the whole show, so I forget if I have a tape
of the whole show, but you should check with Jerry Fabris at the Edison
Site to see if the whole program is on line or otherwise available.
I'm currently looking for more-than-general information and even holdings on existing "Roxy's Gang" and "The Roxy Hour" radio shows that were broadcast from the various "Roxy" Rothapfel theaters in the late '20s and early '30s. I'm working on a number of projects where transcriptions of the shows would be most helpful. Unfortunately, the collector channels have turned up nothing: in fact, no one seems to even remember this nationally broadcasted show!
Thanks in advance, and I look forward to further informative discussions on this list.
