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.

Subject: [OldTimeRadioResearchers] The General Store
 
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.
