Here is the premier episode as a sample, courtesy of member Tom Elkins. Our set will have 64 of the 65, which seems to be what is available in hobbyist circles.

There is material regarding this program in the TRANSCO collection at Library of Congress. Will research this within the next couple of weeks.

I'm looking for background on a series called The General Store. It is a series of 65 5-minute episodes. It was produced in the mid-30s by Atlas Radio. I've attached the only reference to it that I can find; an Atlas advertisement from a 1936 trade magazine. I know we have some sleuths here. Can anyone dig up a more specific production timeline and maybe some artists associated with the show? We have 64 of the 65 episodes.
