The original photo is four and a half inches by six and a half inches. Note the microphone says WPEN. Just to the left of the mike is Broadcast Pioneers founding member Jack Steck who served as Master of Ceremonies for the program. Jack was also our 4th President.

The basis for Jack Steck's bio which is on our website says that the name of this show was "The Laughing Roundup," a country western show). However, the picture identifies the program as "The Laugh Roundup." As of this moment, we're not sure which is the correct title. Anyone with additional information, please e-mail us.
