Hello Roger,
  Had to change the reply address!!!!  PLEASE try to get that problem fixed.

  Yes, folk music.  ROBIN ROBERTS recorded 4 selections for SNADER, 3 were issued by CAMAY.  I am very eager to SEE
the visual part, and of course the 4th selection.

  Is there anyone on the list who WORKED for SNADER?
  Does anyone know where copies of the films (audio AND video) can be obtained for a reasonable price - The sources I mentioned
charge prices starting at $500 - which is way beyond affordable just to see these performances.  I am not interested
in exploiting them.

  Thanks!  Thomas.

Does anyone know much about the SNADER TELESCRIPTIONS, their operation, acquisition of talent, and their studios/venues ???

  I interviewed a performer who recorded 4 songs for SNADER about 1952.  Her recollection does NOT include the SNADER
company, but remembers the recordings and believes that they were filmed in a studio somewhere in the mid-west, possibly IOWA, log
cabin, some Amish connection.  All very vague.

  Based on web sources, the films are offered by a number of companies - negatives owned by The PATHE collection,
distributed through HISTORIC FILMS.  Copies also from MacDonald & Associates.  Prices are high for commercial use.

  Does anyone know an inexpensive source for these films???

  The sound portion of some were issued by CAMAY Records (one of the "99 cent" labels) in the 1960/70s??

Any information or further contacts much appreciated!  Thanks!

Best wishes, Thomas.
