Added lines 11-14:
%note%A recording exists of a probable audition Premiere Episode of Cavalcade of America. The major differences between the audition show and the actual Premiere are significant. The most obvious is that the audition show is a one hour episode. Next, it is sponsored by AT&T. Finally, the scripts for the audition and the Premiere are the same only the Premiere script was edited to fit in the 30 minute time available.

%note%First show of the series. Broadcast on CBS.
Changed lines 924-925 from:
to:
%note%36/06/10 -- Pre-empted by the Republican National Convention.
Changed lines 1028-1029 from:
to:
%note%Episodes 40 through 45 are actually titled "Development of Band Music in America" Part 1, Part 2... The titles listed here are the subtitles of each episode.

(:title Cavalcade of America: Episodes 001 - 100:)
!!From October 9, 1935 through September 15, 1937:

(:comment COLORS: Using the "style='color: XXXXX'" instruction instead of the %xxxxx% color instruction, so that the numbers as part of the numbered lists displayed inside a table (normally used in the "Notes:" field) display in the desired color :)

(:comment COMMENTS: Using the "comment" directive directly underneath the episode anchors as tooltips. It appears that this version of pmwiki does not appear to support tooltips embedded in the anchors themselves -- it just displays whatever is directly underneath the anchor itself. To avoid the ugly "table cellpadding..." statement from appearing as a tooltip, use a comment instead. :)

The story of Luther Burbank, heard this evening, brings to a close the series of dramatic type broadcasts `DuPont has been presenting on its Cavalcade of America program. For the summer months, we have prepared a series of musical broadcasts. Each Wednesday, Don Voorhees and the `DuPont Cavalcade Orchestra will present songs of such outstanding contributors to our light music as George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Vincent Youmans and Jerome Kern, with anecdotes describing how some of their songs came to be written. For the first four broadcasts, we will have as our guest, Conrad Tebow, distinguished radio baritone. All of us, who take part in these programs and those who write and produce them, appreciate the many letters we've had from you. For it is only when you take the trouble to write, that we get the stimulation and lift which comes from direct applause in the theater. Such encouragement inclines us to feel that you'd like more Cavalcade of America dramatizations in the fall. Tune in at the same time next Wednesday evening for a program of Irving Berlin's melodies. Don Voorhees conducting the Cavalcade Orchestra, Conrad Tebow the guest soloist, the first broadcast in `DuPont's summer Cavalcade of Music Series. This is the Columbia Broadcasting System.
