Gable on NPR

  • Fire Contaminates Radio Recordings
    All Things Considered, May 13, 2005. Historical network and local radio broadcasts were contaminated with PCB's in a recent fire at a Los Angeles radio museum. The museum can't afford to decontaminate recordings.

    Note: a NPR segment that features Clark Gable singing Happy Birthday to Carole Lombard. It only lasts a couple of seconds. It is 3:06 minutes into the NPR segment you will hear Gable's singing... Very cool! Thanks to Anne for notifying me!
