Bryan Find Sponsor for Their 'Itty-Bitty-Kiddy Hour on WHN Other Events By Jo Ranson YOU may recall that Old bromide about everything comfs to him who waits. Well, Perry Charles, the mighty atom of the airwaves and creator of that fantastic radio production "The Itty-Bitty-Kiddy Hour" on WHN, has been sold (thank heavens) down the sponsored river after waiting patiently for 16 long months. Usually a sustaining program on air few such a long period is jinxed but the "Itty-Bitty-Kiddy Hour" apparently was born under a lucky , musicians are.' giPerry at WHN, who furnished the name for the sketch on the day the idea for this clambake was conceived. "I don't know what to say about it,"' declared Lampooner Charles when asked how ne felt about capturing a sponsor for his program. "Our sponsor is a cheese firm; that sort of gives us away. Some people say we're funny, only I can't believe them. The only time I think we're doing all right is when the musi- cians laugh. And you know how star. The program got its sponsor-man finally and there is great jubilation In the station, yeah man! Perry Charles, the diminutive eprite, whose cheery countenance has served to brighten Radio Row for many years, says he will be beard thrice weekly, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, at 7 p.m. on the 1010 frequency, aided and abetted by Joe Jordan and his orchestra. Perry's partner in crime will be another of the ether's veterans, the rotund and jovial Arthur Q. Bryan. And between these two esquires tnuch ado about nothing should emanate from the Itty-Bittyites. This column has been a great booster of the "Itty-Bitty-Kiddy Hour" because it is such a mad program. Known as radio's chief burlesque of radio, it has lampooned and mocked every bigwig and top-notch program on the air. From Uncle Con to the Voice of Inexperience, no one has been spared the Perry rod. We wouldn't be a bit surprised if ne of these days the program will kid itself. What a name! As nonsensical as the program itself, and who do you suppose is responsible for the title? None other than that gay blade and sports announcer from Columbia, the eminent Ted (adorable) Busing. Yes, sir, It was the silver-tongued Husing, Idling an hour with The 7 p.m. spot is a tough one in view of the heavy competition on the networks such as Amos and Andy, Myrt and Marge and the Easy Aces. But if any one can buck such competition it is Perry Charles and his "Itty-Bitty-Kiddy Hour." The musicians will help, too. Views, reviews, etc. . . . Congrats to Frederick J. H. Kracke, Commissioner of Plant and Structures, for modernizing the municipal station's equipment. The micro-ray beam will be of great help in times of stress and the construction of studios in downtown Brooklyn will enhance the value of WNYC considerably. It goes without saying that the new Greenpoint transmitter will provide a much better signal than in the past . . . The Britishers will try their hand at amateur programs. They will pattern the simon-pure shows after the American idea except in one important detail. The gong will be missing and each act will be permitted to finish no matter what happens. Listeners on this side of the Atlantic will hear 15 minutes of the British amateur program on May 1. WJZ will rebroad-cast the program in this vicinity . . .
