Jack Berch Show

Jack Berch was a singer and raconteur whose daytime program was an alternative to the often dreary plotlines of soap operas. His goal was to be happy, and did so by whistling a tune and singing at the open of each program. The recordings in the Hehn collection are sponsored by Prudential Insurance. * * * These recordings are part of the Joe Hehn Memorial Collection. Mr. Hehn (1931-2020) was a pioneering collector of radio recordings when the hobby emerged in the 1960s. Digitizing his collection of reel tapes and discs is the effort of a wide range of North American volunteers, and includes assistance of some international collectors. The groups supporting this effort with their funds, time, technology and skills are the Old Time Radio Researchers and a small group of transcription disc preservationists who refer to themselves as the "The Knights of the Turning Table."
