The Pond's Dance Program

Sponsored by Pond's

ER was a guest on the Pond's Dance Program every week between 9 December 1932 and 3 March 1933-- or from shortly after FDR's election until the day before his inauguration. The program aired Friday evenings between 9:30 and 10:00 pm on the NBC Red network. The ERPP has been unable to find audio recordings of this program, but has recovered scripts of ER's contributions and hopes to make these available soon. The program existed before ER's appearances and continued after, so the episode numbers provided here do not apply to the program as a whole.
