Radio Broadcast Log Of:
Hopalong Cassidy
 
     This series came out of the novels written by Clarence E. Mulford.  The character was successful in not only books, but comics, motion pictures, television and radio.  The first broadcast with the Hopalong Cassidy character was heard over CBSs Forecast series, where many experimental broadcasts were tried out on the listening public.  It failed to capture the go ahead for production at the time.  The radio series was produced by Commodore Productions several years before the program actually made it to the radio air waves.
     In the following broadcast log, after each script title, you will see in paraphrases the actual recording dates of each show.  The order in which these programs were recorded does not match the order they were broadcast in.
