    This program is found on LP as program number 75-121, which possibly meant that it was to air on the 21st week of 1975. It was issued to radio stations by the U.S. Department of the Treasury for U.S. Savings bonds to run as public service programming.

    This edition features a track by Carpenters ("Only Yesterday" - shortened for time), and an interview between Mike Douglas and Herb Alpert. The track played is "Carmine" from CONEY ISLAND. The program's announcer is Durward Kirby. You may remember him from the fifties/sixties TV series, THE GARRY MOORE SHOW that introduced Carol Burnett. He also hosted the sixties version of CANDID CAMERA.



    Listen carefully to both parts of Herb's interview - you can hear a train whistle in the distance.

    Does the US Treasury come knocking on the front door if they find out that a person owns this record? :D

    I remember Durward Kirby. He was one of those guys who would turn up as a "guest star" on game shows all the time.

    Wasn't Durwood Kirby also the co-host on "Candid Camera" with Allen Funt?

    Excellent interview and very well edited. I remember the old Mike Douglas show from those days. Ah the childhood memories really are being refreshed here

    It's kind of cool to hear something that really exhibits "American pride." You don't hear that nearly as much these days.

    That's exactly how I built my collection going way back to the late 70s and now as far as my Herb CD collection it's finally complete
