Background

From the February 2nd 1947 edition of the Pulaski Southwest Times:

Family Doctor theme head

     The story of your family physician; who administers to most ills and is counselor in time of need, fellow citizen and a friend to all in his community, will be heard in a new series of programs titled "Dr. Graham and Family," beginning Monday (10:30 to 11 p. m.) over Mutual and WPUV.
     The programs, presented in cooperation with the American medical association, are designed to bring home to the public the trials and tribulations of the general practictioner, and will reveal the various phases of general medical practices so familiarly associated with the American scene.  For, in the large family that is the community of River City, Stephen Graham and his household stand for the heart and humanity of every American doctor.
     Bob Griffin, veteran radio actor, has been chosen to portray Dr. Stephen Graham, of River City, built along the banks of Valley river, a doctor whose practicing territory comprises approximately 100,000 inhabitants.  Bryna Raeburn and Peggy Stanley will play Mrs. Graham, and daughter, respectively, while Mark Twamloy enacts the role of the doctor's 10-year-old son, Johnny; and Michael Fitzmaurice acts Dr. Peabody, Graham's young medical assistant.

What you see here, is what you get. Complete transparency. We have no 'credentials' whatsoever--in any way, shape, or form--in the 'otr community'--none. But here's how we did it--for better or worse. Here's how you can build on it yourselves--hopefully for the better. Here are the breadcrumbs--just follow the trail a bit further if you wish. No hobbled downloads. No misdirection. No posturing about our 'credentials.' No misrepresentations. No strings attached. We point you in the right direction and you're free to expand on it, extend it, use it however it best advances your efforts.

We ask one thing and one thing only--if you employ what we publish, attribute it, before we cite you on it.

We continue to provide honest research into these wonderful Golden Age Radio programs simply because we love to do it. If you feel that we've provided you with useful information or saved you some valuable time regarding this log--and you'd like to help us even further--you can help us keep going. Please consider a small donation here:

We don't pronounce our Golden Age Radio research as 'certified' anything. By the very definition, research is imperfect. We simply tell the truth. As is our continuing practice, we provide our fully provenanced research results--to the extent possible--right here on the page, for any of our peers to review--or refute--as the case may be. If you take issue with any of our findings, you're welcome to cite any better verifiable source(s) and we'll immediately review them and update our findings accordingly. As more verifiable provenances surface, we'll continue to update the following series log, as appropriate.
