1943 calendar of Gene Carrol and Glen Rowell and Jake and Lena

My Full name is Eugene (Gene) Patrick Carroll. Over the years I have always been kidded about the prospect of being related to Gene of Jake and Lena fame.
I am currently a retired musician and teacher born and raised on the west side of Cleveland and suburbs, and taught at Cleveland State University in the 1990’s.
I am working on a “Cleveland Memory” project with Joy Parrish, a music therapist at “The Normandy” elderley care center in Rocky River, OH. The focus for May will be about The Gene Carroll show, and I am interested in finding any old scripts from the radio era of his show, featuring, of course, Jake and Lena. Can anyone help?

You might check the Cleveland Public Library. During their heyday they published a souvenier book that contained broadcast scripts, photos and even music that they used in their act. I had one but gave it to Gene Carroll in the earlyi 1950’s when I met him at WEWS. Libraries often have some unexpected treasures. Also perhaps some of our visitors here can help you. Good luck.

Please read the earlier post, requesting old scripts from the Jake and Lena Series on Radio.
