Destination Freedom Log

Brian Kavanaugh
 

Here's a draft of an initial version of the Destination Freedom log. I shamelessly stole the format from Dr. Joe Webb. :) Please note the ones in yellow. These are ones that are known to exist, but I don't yet have. If you have any of these - or know of a source who would be okay with including them in an OTRR maintained set, please let me know.
 
Some notes:
1. I'm considering the episodes often referred to as the "patriotic format" as a separate series. Therefore, the two series are labeled "Destination Freedom (1948)" and "Destination Freedom (1950)". This is how series with the same name are commonly labeled in the TV world (e.g., by thetvdb.com, etc.).
2. I'm counting the episode from 1/8/1950 as an audition episode for the second series. That said, I have my doubts as to whether it is legitimate. I haven't found any evidence supporting the existence of this episode. It also seems rather coincidental that it is exactly a year earlier than the actual Nathan Hale episode (1/8/1950 versus 1/7/1951, anyway). Also, it doesn't make a lot of sense that this was broadcast in the middle of the run of the existing series. As I understand it, Richard Durham was surprised when a new series appeared using the same name, since he had copyrighted it. If this episode had happened, he would have known about it.
3. The preemption information is from the Chicago Daily Tribune. There are other newspapers that would contain these listings, but this is what I have access to at the moment.
4. The first 13 weeks were partially sponsored by The Chicago Defender, and some episodes from 1950 (of the original series) were partially sponsored by the Urban League of Chicago. I don't know if that's enough to change it from being listed as "sustaining", and I don't know which episodes in 1950 were partially sponsored, anyway.

Brian,
I have been working on the Destination Freedom series off and on for several weeks now and finally completed a full listing of the show including the pre-empted dates and notes for them...Here is the list as I have it so far....I would not list the Patriotic part as different since they are the same show just under a different form.   The ones that are an mp3 I have and the txt files I am lacking.

Richard,

Is there something specific you are pointing to? Do you have any of the episodes that are known to be available that I don't have? I'm not seeing anything different in your list from what I listed.

Richard Durham owned the copyright to the name "Destination Freedom". He did not authorize - nor was in any way involved with - the series revival and new format that was started in late 1950, and in fact sued the station and NBC because of their copyright infringement. In my opinion that strongly indicates they should be considered two distinct series that happen to share the same name. Intentionally, almost certainly yes, but that doesn't mean the second format is a continuation of the original series - any more than Battlestar Galactica (2003) is a continuation of the original TV series Battlestar Galactica (1978). Both reimagined the original and should be considered distinct.

Here's a draft of an initial version of the Destination Freedom log. I shamelessly stole the format from Dr. Joe Webb. :) Please note the ones in yellow. These are ones that are known to exist, but I don't yet have. If you have any of these - or know of a source who would be okay with including them in an OTRR maintained set, please let me know.
 
Some notes:
1. I'm considering the episodes often referred to as the "patriotic format" as a separate series. Therefore, the two series are labeled "Destination Freedom (1948)" and "Destination Freedom (1950)". This is how series with the same name are commonly labeled in the TV world (e.g., by thetvdb.com, etc.).
2. I'm counting the episode from 1/8/1950 as an audition episode for the second series. That said, I have my doubts as to whether it is legitimate. I haven't found any evidence supporting the existence of this episode. It also seems rather coincidental that it is exactly a year earlier than the actual Nathan Hale episode (1/8/1950 versus 1/7/1951, anyway). Also, it doesn't make a lot of sense that this was broadcast in the middle of the run of the existing series. As I understand it, Richard Durham was surprised when a new series appeared using the same name, since he had copyrighted it. If this episode had happened, he would have known about it.
3. The preemption information is from the Chicago Daily Tribune. There are other newspapers that would contain these listings, but this is what I have access to at the moment.
4. The first 13 weeks were partially sponsored by The Chicago Defender, and some episodes from 1950 (of the original series) were partially sponsored by the Urban League of Chicago. I don't know if that's enough to change it from being listed as "sustaining", and I don't know which episodes in 1950 were partially sponsored, anyway.

Look down in my list under the names for the freedom series.  My list will fill in several of your blank title spots

Richard,

Is there something specific you are pointing to? Do you have any of the episodes that are known to be available that I don't have? I'm not seeing anything different in your list from what I listed.

Richard Durham owned the copyright to the name "Destination Freedom". He did not authorize - nor was in any way involved with - the series revival and new format that was started in late 1950, and in fact sued the station and NBC because of their copyright infringement. In my opinion that strongly indicates they should be considered two distinct series that happen to share the same name. Intentionally, almost certainly yes, but that doesn't mean the second format is a continuation of the original series - any more than Battlestar Galactica (2003) is a continuation of the original TV series Battlestar Galactica (1978). Both reimagined the original and should be considered distinct.

Brian,
I have been working on the Destination Freedom series off and on for several weeks now and finally completed a full listing of the show including the pre-empted dates and notes for them...Here is the list as I have it so far....I would not list the Patriotic part as different since they are the same show just under a different form.   The ones that are an mp3 I have and the txt files I am lacking.

Here's a draft of an initial version of the Destination Freedom log. I shamelessly stole the format from Dr. Joe Webb. :) Please note the ones in yellow. These are ones that are known to exist, but I don't yet have. If you have any of these - or know of a source who would be okay with including them in an OTRR maintained set, please let me know.
 
Some notes:
1. I'm considering the episodes often referred to as the "patriotic format" as a separate series. Therefore, the two series are labeled "Destination Freedom (1948)" and "Destination Freedom (1950)". This is how series with the same name are commonly labeled in the TV world (e.g., by thetvdb.com, etc.).
2. I'm counting the episode from 1/8/1950 as an audition episode for the second series. That said, I have my doubts as to whether it is legitimate. I haven't found any evidence supporting the existence of this episode. It also seems rather coincidental that it is exactly a year earlier than the actual Nathan Hale episode (1/8/1950 versus 1/7/1951, anyway). Also, it doesn't make a lot of sense that this was broadcast in the middle of the run of the existing series. As I understand it, Richard Durham was surprised when a new series appeared using the same name, since he had copyrighted it. If this episode had happened, he would have known about it.
3. The preemption information is from the Chicago Daily Tribune. There are other newspapers that would contain these listings, but this is what I have access to at the moment.
4. The first 13 weeks were partially sponsored by The Chicago Defender, and some episodes from 1950 (of the original series) were partially sponsored by the Urban League of Chicago. I don't know if that's enough to change it from being listed as "sustaining", and I don't know which episodes in 1950 were partially sponsored, anyway.

Is your information from Digital Deli? Have you been able to independently confirm it from the Wisconsin State Journal and/or other sources where a title and/or subject might be listed? I'm not saying he is correct or incorrect here, but his information hasn't always been reliable in the past (in fairness, there are entries in OTTER with issues, which is why we try to verify the information), and he is quick to bash anyone who disagrees with him. It is better to independently confirm these things (all information, really) - with multiple sources, if possible.

Richard,

Is there something specific you are pointing to? Do you have any of the episodes that are known to be available that I don't have? I'm not seeing anything different in your list from what I listed.

Richard Durham owned the copyright to the name "Destination Freedom". He did not authorize - nor was in any way involved with - the series revival and new format that was started in late 1950, and in fact sued the station and NBC because of their copyright infringement. In my opinion that strongly indicates they should be considered two distinct series that happen to share the same name. Intentionally, almost certainly yes, but that doesn't mean the second format is a continuation of the original series - any more than Battlestar Galactica (2003) is a continuation of the original TV series Battlestar Galactica (1978). Both reimagined the original and should be considered distinct.

Brian,
I have been working on the Destination Freedom series off and on for several weeks now and finally completed a full listing of the show including the pre-empted dates and notes for them...Here is the list as I have it so far....I would not list the Patriotic part as different since they are the same show just under a different form.   The ones that are an mp3 I have and the txt files I am lacking.

I compromised with the numbering system after I noted to conflicts of some site as to how to number them.  Please note where it starts at 0104 or the 1st in the new Patriotic episodes.  I tried to get both the title and the person highlighted for that particular show.  This is indeed a work in progress and it looks like I might have 1 or 2 shows you do not.  Feel free to scan thru and if you want I can send you any shows you desire.

Is your information from Digital Deli? Have you been able to independently confirm it from the Wisconsin State Journal and/or other sources where a title and/or subject might be listed? I'm not saying he is correct or incorrect here, but his information hasn't always been reliable in the past (in fairness, there are entries in OTTER with issues, which is why we try to verify the information), and he is quick to bash anyone who disagrees with him. It is better to independently confirm these things (all information, really) - with multiple sources, if possible.

Richard,

Is there something specific you are pointing to? Do you have any of the episodes that are known to be available that I don't have? I'm not seeing anything different in your list from what I listed.

Richard Durham owned the copyright to the name "Destination Freedom". He did not authorize - nor was in any way involved with - the series revival and new format that was started in late 1950, and in fact sued the station and NBC because of their copyright infringement. In my opinion that strongly indicates they should be considered two distinct series that happen to share the same name. Intentionally, almost certainly yes, but that doesn't mean the second format is a continuation of the original series - any more than Battlestar Galactica (2003) is a continuation of the original TV series Battlestar Galactica (1978). Both reimagined the original and should be considered distinct.

Brian,
I have been working on the Destination Freedom series off and on for several weeks now and finally completed a full listing of the show including the pre-empted dates and notes for them...Here is the list as I have it so far....I would not list the Patriotic part as different since they are the same show just under a different form.   The ones that are an mp3 I have and the txt files I am lacking.

Here's a draft of an initial version of the Destination Freedom log. I shamelessly stole the format from Dr. Joe Webb. :) Please note the ones in yellow. These are ones that are known to exist, but I don't yet have. If you have any of these - or know of a source who would be okay with including them in an OTRR maintained set, please let me know.
 
Some notes:
1. I'm considering the episodes often referred to as the "patriotic format" as a separate series. Therefore, the two series are labeled "Destination Freedom (1948)" and "Destination Freedom (1950)". This is how series with the same name are commonly labeled in the TV world (e.g., by thetvdb.com, etc.).
2. I'm counting the episode from 1/8/1950 as an audition episode for the second series. That said, I have my doubts as to whether it is legitimate. I haven't found any evidence supporting the existence of this episode. It also seems rather coincidental that it is exactly a year earlier than the actual Nathan Hale episode (1/8/1950 versus 1/7/1951, anyway). Also, it doesn't make a lot of sense that this was broadcast in the middle of the run of the existing series. As I understand it, Richard Durham was surprised when a new series appeared using the same name, since he had copyrighted it. If this episode had happened, he would have known about it.
3. The preemption information is from the Chicago Daily Tribune. There are other newspapers that would contain these listings, but this is what I have access to at the moment.
4. The first 13 weeks were partially sponsored by The Chicago Defender, and some episodes from 1950 (of the original series) were partially sponsored by the Urban League of Chicago. I don't know if that's enough to change it from being listed as "sustaining", and I don't know which episodes in 1950 were partially sponsored, anyway.

Richard,
 
I went through your list fairly carefully last night and this morning. Here are my notes:
 
  • I have 49-04-10 which you are missing. I got it here: https://jheroes.com/real-life-reporters/destination-freedom/
  • You're missing a pre-empted placeholder for 49-05-08
  • You indicate you have 50-04-02. I am missing that one. Jerry, Goldin and Digital Deli all list that as unavailable, so I would love to get a copy of that.
  • 50-04-30/50-05-07. I don't think that's a two-part episode. I show 4/30 as pre-empted. Neither http://www.jfredmacdonald.com/rddf/radiolog.htm or https://www.chipublib.org/fa-richard-durham-papers/ list an episode for that date, nor indicate the 5/7 episode was a two-parter. I think Digital Deli is in error here, though he doesn't exactly say it was a two-parter, either.
  • 50-04-22, I have that one, from OTRR Library (I haven't listened to it to verify it is correct, though). That isn't currently working, so I can send it to you if you would like.
  • There are a number of date disagreements in the 1950 series between Jerry and Digital Deli. I think it will take some time to work out who is correct here:
  •     50-12-03 through 50-12-24
  •     I am nearly positive that Digital Deli is wrong about the episode on 12/10. That, and 12/17, are the same thing. I listened to that episode this morning, and it says both "a strengthened United Nations" (a few different times in the episode) and "Weapons for Peace" at about 27 minutes. The Wisconsin State Journal lists "Weapons for Peace" on 12/17, so I think that's the correct date for the United Nations episode. Note: that script is available in the Chicago Public Library collection (not online, though); I think it was an exhibit in his lawsuit. 
  •     51-02-04 through 51-02-11
  •     50-04-01
  •     50-05-06 through 50-06-16
  •     Digital Deli doesn't think there are any episodes after 50-06-30. I think that is correct, as I haven't found any newspaper listings for it after 6/30 either.
 
Are there any others you have that I do not that I missed?

  • 50-04-22, I have that one, from OTRR Library (I haven't listened to it to verify it is correct, though). That isn't currently working, so I can send it to you if you would like.
  • There are a number of date disagreements in the 1950 series between Jerry and Digital Deli. I think it will take some time to work out who is correct here:
  •     50-12-03 through 50-12-24
  •     I am nearly positive that Digital Deli is wrong about the episode on 12/10. That, and 12/17, are the same thing. I listened to that episode this morning, and it says both "a strengthened United Nations" (a few different times in the episode) and "Weapons for Peace" at about 27 minutes. The Wisconsin State Journal lists "Weapons for Peace" on 12/17, so I think that's the correct date for the United Nations episode. Note: that script is available in the Chicago Public Library collection (not online, though); I think it was an exhibit in his lawsuit. 
  •     51-02-04 through 51-02-11
  •     50-04-01
  •     50-05-06 through 50-06-16
  •     Digital Deli doesn't think there are any episodes after 50-06-30. I think that is correct, as I haven't found any newspaper listings for it after 6/30 either.
 
Are there any others you have that I do not that I missed?

On this day 158 years ago, Ida Bell Wells was born into slavery in Holly Springs, Mississippi. She would go on to help found the NAACP, fight for women's right to vote despite the racism endemic to the suffrage movement, and, in 2020, be awarded a Pulitzer Prize special citation for her fearless documentation of lynchings in the late 1800s.

Thanks for the effort that went into the Destination Freedom spreadsheet, incorporating much more than the sometimes cryptic episode titles. I'd gleaned most of that information from fans' Internet Archive comments and elsewhere, but it's still nice to see it pulled together. 

I haven't listened to the entire series, since my main interests are biographies of journalists ... with a sideline interest in jazz and blues musicians. I still listen to episodes from time to time and update my online essay when I discover a lurking journalism anecdote -- most recently in the story of Ralph Bunche.   

https://jheroes.com/2020/07/27/a-brief-journalism-career-preceded-his-nobel-peace-prize/

https://jheroes.com/real-life-reporters/destination-freedom/

Speaking of diverse research interests, I wonder if anyone has a similar spreadsheet with cells listing additional information, including content-related information, such as the decade in which an episode's story takes place, and the profession of the person profiled, or an episode theme, such as "musician bio," "journalist bio," "civil rights leader bio," etc.?

It gets complicated, since many of these amazing individuals are hard to contain under one label... In fact, I would love to make an addition to my series profile page for an episode about one man who was a writer, editor, poet and scholar, and also (to quote an NAACP bio) a "civil rights activist, leader, Pan-Africanist, sociologist, educator, historian..." Alas, the W.E.B. Dubois story is one of the missing episodes. If anyone has it, please send up a flare! 

Best wishes,

The list I sent in has the person profiled when known.  It is as accurate as possible.  I am in contact with the alleged current copyright holder.  Hopefully he and I can arrange to get copies of the shows not readily available.

As my article at Jheroes.com says, Jerry Haendiges was kind enough to put the Ida B. Wells episode on a public page where I could link to it, part of his shared list here...

 http://www.vintageradioprograms.com

At first he gave it an mp3 filename address on his own server, but later moved the hosting to pcloud, where I now link to it in the episode names on my Destination Freedom and Ida B Wells pages.

Thanks for pointing out that the WordPress embedded MP3 player no longer works, since it apparently is incompatible with pcloud addresses.

Again, give Jerry a vote of thanks for putting this rare episode out where it can be heard!

Bob,
I already had that episode.  I hope that does not mean my copy is no good.  I will have to check now and verify. 

Here is my work in progress Destination Freedom episode list. 

I include the missing shows by name by using a basic txt file so I at least know the title information.

As my article at Jheroes.com says, Jerry Haendiges was kind enough to put the Ida B. Wells episode on a public page where I could link to it, part of his shared list here...

 http://www.vintageradioprograms.com

At first he gave it an mp3 filename address on his own server, but later moved the hosting to pcloud, where I now link to it in the episode names on my Destination Freedom and Ida B Wells pages.

Thanks for pointing out that the WordPress embedded MP3 player no longer works, since it apparently is incompatible with pcloud addresses.

Again, give Jerry a vote of thanks for putting this rare episode out where it can be heard!
