Radio program broadcast by NBC Red network. Recorded by a Western Electric system through a direct wire from the Bourse Building, Philadelphia. Victor ledgers note, "Two AT&T men present."
The New York Times of Sept. 19, 1930, notes that the event broadcast "will serve as a climax to a holiday declared [in Camden] in celebration of the concentration of the research, manufacturing and engineering activities of the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company at that point, which is expected to help the unemployment situation."
Personnel noted derive from a New York Times listing announcing the broadcast. They are not confirmed and it is not known on which part each individual was recorded.
Victor ledgers indicate that the master recording was "personal"; it was made on commission or not intended for release.
