December 20, 1937 - Walt Disney on Lux Radio
At the conclusion of the radio performance, DeMille welcomed a very young-sounding Walt Disney to the mic. The two chatted about opening night jitters, the making of the animated film, and the obligatory sponsor plug for Lux Flakes.
Listen to the entire Song of Songs Lux Radio Theater performance via the Internet Archive. Original airdate December 20, 1937. (Marlene Dietrich really gives an excellent performance.)
The following year, Walt was back on the air when Lux presented the first radio broadcast of Snow White (see earlier post).
