M-G-M Air View – The Stratton Story

We covered the story of this 12-inch, 78 RPM disc (M-G-M 27597/27598) in our book, but no photos or audio could be included. We add those here.


The date, March 29, 1949, is stamped into the run-off area of the record. This is presumed to be either the date of the interview or the date on which the records were pressed. The film itself would not be released until early June.

We’re going to include the complete interview here, with questions being asked by Dick Simmons.
