Looking for Maude Adams programs

Postby bunnychan » Tue Oct 09, 2007 7:46 pm

Maude Adams, the American actress of the late 1800's, early 1900's, did a series of radio shows as part of something called NBC Pond's Program. They started on January 12th, either of 1933 or 1934. They included a program about the play The Little Minister; three on Peter Pan; one on Rosemary, and two other pieces.

I have searched lots of places on line and cannot find the actual programs. Does anyone have any leads at all where I could find this series; I'd love to hear what Maude Adams sounds like.

Assuming you are not talking about Maude Adams, one of the most beautiful women in cinema and recognized Bond girl, I know of only recording that has the Maude Adams you are referring to. And it does exist and is in circulation. I do not have a copy (can't help you out there) but you can subscribe to Charlie's OTR Digest and ask and someone will probably be able to help you.

December 24, 1938. NBC net. A Christmas eve program of seasonal music and verse. Maude Adams is described as the director of the dramatic department of Stevens College. Joseph Hauntie conducted the music. 30 minute show.
