Background

November 7th, 1932, on the Eve of the 1932 Presidential Election, two account executives, Harry Grier and Jerry Belcher, working for Radio Station KTRH, Houston, wandered out onto the street outside their studios in the Rice Hotel and began to interview passers-by. Their first sponsor was Landers, King, and Smith. An almost instant hit, they continued their 'Vox Populi' interviews for the next two and a half years, sponsored by Dallas's Metzger Dairies, until the program was picked up briefly by the Southwest Broadcasting System. Beginning with the wider, regionally produced version of Sidewalk Interviews--in January 1935--the compelling notion of an entire program of man-in-the-street interviews caught on to the point of earning it a national audience within it's first two years.

From the July 7th 1935 edition of the San Diego Union :

Sidewalks of New York To Be Locale for Novel Broadcast Series Today -- Passersby Will Face Microphone in 'Voice Of People' Program

     On the sidewalks of New York . . .
     That's the locale for a new broadcast series to have its inaugural over the NBC network and KFI at 3:30 o'clock this afternoon, when Jerry Belcher and Parks Johnson go on the air with a novel idea in radio entertainment.
     Titled the "Voice of the People," the sidewalk interviews on subjects of timely interest will be broadcast every Sunday during the summer.  Each week Belcher and Johnson will set up their microphone in a busy section of Manhattan and bring passersby to the air to answer a variety of questions.
     The exact point from which the pick-up will be made will never be revealed in advance of the broadcast in order to preserve the atmosphere of informality that characterizes the program.  None of the people to be interviewed will know in advance as they will be selected at random from street crowds.  Even the questions to be propounded each week will be kept secret too, so that the whole broadcast will be entirely spontaneous.  It should provide listeners with an interesting half-hour, but it is obviously borrowed from Columbia's "Man in the Street" broadcasts.

So novel was the idea that, within just five years, Vox Pop was rapidly becoming one of the most parodied, copied new formats in local radio--and to a growing degree, in national radio. Indeed, for the likes of Bob and Ray, Steve Allen, Jack Paar, and Arthur Godfrey, the 'candid' man-in-the-street interview--either genuine or in parody--became a regular go-to source of gags. Bob and Ray elevated the man-in-the-street interview parody to an art form that has never been equalled, even though emulated even today, by Late Night Television Talk Show hosts the world over.

But parodies and spin-offs aside, the genuine Vox Pop interviews--especially those during the World War II years of the program--remain riveting time-capsule snapshots of the views of both stateside and war-bound American citizens during a period of massive domestic and international upheaval.

If this format seems familiar in several ways, it may be instructive to remember Television's The Today Show. Dave Garroway was very impressed with the Vox Pop formula. The transition to Television was, again, revolutionary for the Television Remote paradigm, but proved equally popular and effective for decades to come. The Today Show's frequent visits outside the confines of Rockerfeller Center remain highly popular to this day. Call it voyeurism, narcissism or schadenfreude, but whatever the attraction, the American Public seems to love holding a mirror to itself. In that respect this format remains timeless.

Vox Pop, short for the Latin phrase, Vox Populi, means, literally, The Voice of The People--in retrospect quite an apt title for this long-running, truly historic series.

1. Contrary to the 'DS' citations for this program in the Jay Hickerson Guide--and virtually all other sources but that of the Library of American Broadcasting, the series didn't begin in 1935. It began in 1932, at Houston Station KTRH.

2. The episode dated 42-07-27 was broadcast from Keesler Field, near Biloxi, Mississippi, not Keisler Field.

3. The episode dated 44-06-26 was broadcast from Farragut, Idaho, not Frarragut, Idaho.

At last they've released the answer to that horse problem. Belcher and Johnson, those querulous gents on the Vox Pop program, have been asking folk the following problem in mathematics. If a man buys a horse for $70, sells it for $80, buys it back for $90, and sells it once more for $100, how much profit has he made, if any? Number questions aren't so handily adapted to man-on-the-street exams. The subject is usually flustered by mike-fright and, when the question is a poser even for one equipped with a pencil and paper and a quiet room, you cam imagine the helplessness of a fellow who always got a D in math.

"Horse Financier Makes $20 On Equestrian Equation!" Worried to a frazzle over a problem he heard on the Vox Pop program, Jasper Beeswax (Titus's cousin) went out and bought a horse for $70 the other day. He sold it for $80 on the promise that he'd buy it back for $90, which he did. He sold it yesterday for $100, as in the problem, and finds he is $20 to the good if the hundred dollar bill wasn't counterfeit, which it was.

Jerry Belcher and Parks Johnson, tireless interviewers of Mr. and Mrs. Average American in the weekly Vox Pop broadcasts, will conclude their current series this afternoon with another glance at the amusing side of life. The two ex-newspapermen from Texas began their sidewalk interviews for a national audience last July, and in the short space of three months the sidewalk interviewers have built up a national reputation for informal humor and friendliness. It'll be quite a lonely afternoon when these two fellows leave the air, but we're hoping some sponsor will snatch them up and put their broadcast back on the air. Say you?"

The Vox Pop programs, now called
Our Neighbors, goes on the air at 3 tomorrow, at WTAM. There was a split of some kind rumored in that program but we hope it's patched up or something. That Vox Pop sketch is really too good to tamper with.

William Parks Johnson, was born the son of Rev. Luke Garnett and Carrie Moore (Parks) Johnson, at Sheffield, Alabama. Parks attended both Emory University and the University of Georgia. He trained in Texas for World War I, eventually rising to the rank of Infantry Captain. Upon resigning his commission after the war, he met and married Joyce Louise Johnson of San Marcos in1919. They eventually had two children.

It was in 1932, while working as advertising account executives for Radio Station KTRH, that Jerry Belcher and Harry Grier, acting on both impulse and inspiration, took a microphone to the street to interview passers-by. Belcher and Grier continued the interviews together for Houston's Metzger Dairies. After a few months, Parks Johnson replaced Harry Grier, and Belcher and Johnson continued their broadcasts for just over two years, until the Southwest Broadcasting System picked up their broadcasts in 1935 providing the duo to reach a far wider audience

The initial reception to these novel interviews prompted further man-in-the street programs, and thus was borne Johnson's Vox Pop program. Employing a diverse combination of trick questions, fanciful questions, and financial incentives for 'correct' answers, Vox Pop soon became an audience-participation show, as well.

The concept traveled well, and within two years, Sidewalk Interviews/Vox Pop was being heard as far away as Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma. In 1935, Johnson got the call to take the novel new concept to New York City, and NBC's flagship operation center.

It was Joyce, Johnson's wife, that contributed the idea of offering participation prizes to Johnson's interviewees. By its second year based out of New York, Parks Johnson was on the road for NBC and Vox Pop, traveling to 47 of the lower 48 States with it's fascinating format.

What made the formula so successful? It was all about people. People who'd been beaten down by the Great Depression but somehow found the inspiration to bounce back. People preparing for a looming World War. And most of all, people with little in the way of an agenda, other than finding newer, better ways to serve their country and provide for their families.

By 1940, America was gearing up for an impending World War. Parks Johnson repurposed his program to focus on America's preparations for War concentrating on activities of training camps and the armament industries. From that point forward, Johnson and NBC dedicated the program to the war effort until the last shot was fired in 1945.

Under Johnson's direction "Vox Pop" became a program of firsts:
  • The first program to broadcast from an army training camp
  • The first program to broadcast from both Annapolis and West Point
  • The first program to broadcast from an American aircraft carrier "somewhere in the Pacific"
  • The first program to broadcast from war plants and training centers of every branch of the service.
  • The first program to undertake a good-neighbor radio tour through Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, France, and England.
  • The first program to broadcast at the filming locations of well-known movies.

Through it all, despite interviews with Vice Presidents Nixon and Wallace, Chief Justice Earl Warren, twenty-seven State Governors, dozens of Senators, "bushels of Generals and Admirals," and over one hundred actors and singers, Johnson kept the "Vox Pop" spotlight on the average person. Vox Pop--The Voice of The People

In 1948 the Johnsons retired to Wimberley, Texas, devoting the remainder of their lives to supporting their local community.

The Vox PopGame, c. 1944
Born 1901, in Phladelphia, PA, the son of a well-known concert pianist, Herbert Wallace Butterworth determined early on, to become a singer. Using money he'd earned from an after-school job, he bought a season ticket to Philadelphia's weekly Metropolitan Opera. He undertook singing lessons and, after graduation from Swarthmore High School, he embarked upon two successful singing tours through Canada and the Eastern United States.

While visiting New York during the early 1930s, Wally Butterworth impulsively decided to audition as an announcer for NBC radio. To his surprise and delight, he was accepted and soon transferred to Chicago. Among his favorite early assignments was covering the Chicago Civic Light Opera. In time, he announced for The Chicago Symphony, football games and livestock parades. He also worked as Anchorman for both the 1932 Democratic and Republican conventions for ABC and NBC. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was running against Herbert Hoover.

He served a term in the Navy and upon receiving his discharge, was asked to co-host "Vox Pop." during the ensuing years Butterworth hosted numerous variety and quiz programs, some of his own design. Beginning in the 1930s he'd contacted several movie show proprietors offering to stage quiz shows in the movie houses on slow box office nights.

His popularity continued until the early 1960s when Butterworth lost a lawsuit against General Electric over a contract for a television quiz show he felt was directly modeled after one of his own radio programs.

Having become disillusioned during these David vs. Goliath legal struggles, he became politically active, privately producing records on political subjects under several labels.

He developed and hosted a radio program in Atlanta, openly opposing one of the early NAACP conventions and attacking blacks, non-Christians, and Catholics. The Radio station cancelled his program after only two weeks. He sued the station and lost--yet again.

Now fully disillusioned, Butterworth turned elsewhere in an attempt to find political satisfaction. Butterworth organized the
Defensive Legion of Registered Americans in 1962. A subgroup of this organization was called the Christian Voters and Buyers League, whose main purpose was to boycott all Kosher food manufacturers and Jewish owned businesses.

Butterworth devoted the remainder of his life to various private crusades: opposing Gun Control, Sex Education, Parades, and The City of New York. He reviewed textbooks, incorporated The Constitution Party, and compiled statistics on the voting records of United States Senators.

He'd been nicknamed "the voice with the smile," but an embittered Wally Butterworth died frustrated and ultimately unfulfilled in Pennsylvania on February 24, 1974.
