Typed Letter signed: "Malcolm Claire", 1 page, 6x7. Chicago, 1936 August 12. On his NBC letterhead to "Dear Radio Friend", in full: "Your nice card was greatly enjoyed and I was very glad to receive it. Letters and cards from our listeners are most important to us and also a tremendous factor in the survival of a radio program. My standing in the finals of the Radio Guide contest was far beyond my fondest hopes. Thank you, all of you who made it possible. Is your station carrying the program again? I hope so. May I hope to hear from you again? Sincerely yours". Radio storyteller Malcolm Claire was featured on WLS National Barn Dance, and then nationally on NBC. He was best known for his children's stories, which were also released on records ("Mother Goose Stories") and books (Tune In Again). Claire often performed in blackface under the name "Spareribs the Redcap." Multiple mailing folds. Lightly toned at edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
