About this Old Time Radio Show

Dan SeymourWe The People is a human interest collection of not so simple stories from simple people and not so simple people.  The show featured real people telling an unusual and extraordinary true story in their own words, later the stories were dramatized.  Time Magazine called We The People "anybody's and everybody's soap box." 

Some We The People stories including in this collection:

  • Dunninger the Mentalist tells the true ghost story of a dead man's guitar that mysteriously strummed every night.
  • A heartwarming story of a small time crook doing time in prison who finds a pen-pal on the outside.  When he's released he travels to her home to surprise her only to be surprised himself by what he found.
  • A poor newsboy who always wanted a dog, finds one he named Rusty who helps him run his route.  He tells the story on how he lost he's dog to a reckless automobile drive.

Sanka CoffeeWe The People was sponsored by Sanka coffee and later Post Grape Nuts, and Gulf Oil. The show began as a skit on the Rudy Vallee Show and soon became it's own show so popular it rivaled Ripley's Believe it or Not for extraordinary stories. 

At times guests who were mostly amateurs had trouble reading their stories due to stage fright.  To prevent fraudulent stories from broadcasting, the production came up with an extensive test system to prove stories to be true. 

We The People is an entertaining old time radio show featuring human interest stories from the 1930s and 1940s.
