Description
Description
As part of a fundraising effort for the March of Dimes, Eleanor Roosevelt reveals her "hidden talent" as a disc jockey. Several New York City teenagers suffering from polio attend the session and make requests for Mrs. Roosevelt to play. Roosevelt discusses the children's conditions and plays popular music, including Elvis Presley, Harry Belafonte and others. After the requests, Eleanor Roosevelt talks to the listening audience. She says her sponsor is the warm-hearted American public. The March of Dimes theme this January is "Let's Finish the Job." There are not enough people who have had their complete series of three shots. Means vaccination for everyone under 40 and reducing new cases to a minimum. "I hope this inspires everyone who has been listening to give and give generously to the 1957 March of Dimes." There is a 2:58 excerpt on a 7" reel with Dolby SR.
