Some of the lists and descriptions of songs from the Old Gold broadcasts shown on this web page were obtained from the book, "Bix, Man and Legend, by Richard M. Sudhalter and Philip R. Evans, with William Dean-Myatt, published in 1974 by Arlington House. In Appendix A of the book, in making a list of events in Bix's life, this information, transcribed at the time by Warren W. Scholl, covered Old Gold broadcasts from March 5, 1929 to September 10, 1929 (during the time that Bix was spotted on the broadcasts). Corrections to this information were found in the book, "Bix : The Leon Bix Beiderbecke Story, by Philip R. Evans and Linda K. Evans, published in 1998 by Prelike Press. The other lists were transcribed from radio listings found in the Columbus Dispatch newspaper in 1929 and 1930 which were provided by L. Scott Whelan and from the Whiteman Collection at Williams College. If you have any further information on this program, please let me know.
    The Old Gold - Paul Whiteman Hour broadcasts began on February 5, 1929. These Tuesday night shows were in competition with the Saturday night NBC radio program of B. A. Rolfe & his Lucky Strike Dance Orchestra (hence, references to Rolfe in the information). The announcer for these weekly broadcasts was Ted Husing, and later Harry Von Zell. During the course of this radio program, the Paul Whiteman Orchestra went to Hollywood twice (once on a train sponsored by Old Gold) to make the movie "The King of Jazz". The Old Gold broadcasts continued until May 6, 1930.

Line recordings and transcriptions have been sought, but have not been found for these shows. Links shown on this page are for studio recordings of songs by the Paul Whiteman Orchestra.

To find out more information about the Old Gold programs (and the radio programs of Bing Crosby in general), go to the Bing Crosby - The Radio Years site.
