Summary

Summer Madness Hits World's Fair
Airdate: Tuesday - June 23, 1964

WOR Show

Shep checks his voluminous files to see what he talked about on the show from a year ago. He spoke of Summer Madness. World of communication - never knowing what's next in the news. The Worlds Fair - The Bell Telephone exhibit where none of the phones worked. And there was no one to complain to. The GE exhibit - Carousel of Progress - breaks down. Labor disputes at the Fair. Excessive charges for small repairs.
Notes
The show is interrupted in the first few minutes by a news bulletin regarding the exploding of the Macy's barge during the annual fireworks display.
