A 1934 Season Pass for WCAU

This is a WCU Radio Season Pass from 1934. That's one year after they moved into their new facilities at 1622 Chestnut Street in Center City Philadelphia. The pass holder was Murray Arnold who later would be Program Director at WIP and eventually General Manager of WPEN Radio. Murray started in radio in 1931 as one-half of a broadcast comedy team called "The Boneheads" broadcast over WCAU. Note to the left, the pass is countersigned by Broadcast Pioneers member Dr. Leon Levy, co-owner of WCAU.
