Sugar Report - 1945

More from your Sugar Report.  A few more have been found.  Most of the time WWII shows in AFRS are fairly common.  A few hundred were pressed, several were saved.
The Sugar Report was different.  The show was apparently recorded to acetate for broadcast from the government's shortwave station in California.  So each disk that is found is unique.
The show isn't documented.  The last time I found some of these, Jinx Falkenburg was the host.  I had assumed it was her show. Today Joan Edwards from Your Hit Parade plays excerpts from radio back in the states

This was a project at it's best.  I was contacted and asked "If I pay for those, can you transfer them?" I explained I'm still trying to replace my 16" table.  "I can wait."  Done.  I asked around and found someone to do the transfer.  In the same time frame, we received a donation that covered the postage (click the PayPal box).  It took a lot of people.   John, Doug and Robert, thanks for making this happen.
