Contents of disc #JB235:

You can listen to this disc on Youtube.

In late May 1961, WRC changed the schedule and the Joy Boys were only on Friday nights instead of five nights a week. The 7:05 - 7:30 PM slot was referrred to as The Showcase and featured a different program each night: Al Ross, Holly Wright, the Joy Boys, etc. If anyone is interested, we have one of Holly Wright's shows from this time period as well.

These Joy Boys shows ran on three Friday nights after the change. Listen to the first cut (below) as Willard and Ed describe the "reason" why their show was cut back to one night.
