EDIT
What's New in the News
AIRED:
This episode was a series of satirical blackouts based around current events. The show was headed by Happy Felton and the Song Spinners Quartet. Original songs were performed, including one about Alaska. In the closing sketch, a cop (Felton) gets a confession out of a criminal by playing a putrid song on the phonograph. The desk sergeant steps down to congratulate the officer and reveals himself to be a dwarf.moreless

      • This telecast was given a poor review by Sam Chase in the 5/7/1949 edition of Billboard magazine. He called the program "abysmal", with "bad camera work", jokes that were "prehistoric", and "indifferent" direction. Chase said the songs had "poorish" music and felt the acting was the worst part of the show though "it's difficult to single out any one feature worse than the others." The closing sketch was "putrid".
