I checked two sites.
JJ's Radio logs has original radio schedules from different newspapers
of the period. On those two dates, I didn't see these pieces or the
NY Phil mentioned specifically, but you might double-check all the
papers there for the dates since I might have missed something.
Goldin's site - http://www.radiogoldindex.com/ - is a listing of radio
programs in circulation among collectors and some not in circulation.
Neither date there turned up an existing broadcast by Toscanini, but
that doesn't mean there wasn't one on either of those dates.
