RADIO SHOW DEBUTED ON THIS DAY IN 1937

hobbylobby
Rare 1930’s advertising charm from Fels- Naptha Soap made for the Hobby
Lobby radio show.

Hobby Lobby allowed listeners everywhere to write in about their unusual hobbies
so they could come on the radio and "lobby for their hobby."  Many of the hobbies
were actually people’s professions like a female gorilla trainer, a scientist that makes robots, and a beekeeper (whose bees escaped during the show). The show was on
the air till 1948. The host of the series was Dave Elman who was billed as "the dean
of American hobbyist."
