The Andre Kostelanetz Show featuring Eleanor Steber and Percy FaithMany years ago, I purchased this compact disc of The Andre Kostelanetz Show with Eleanor Steber and guest conductor Percy Faith. The programs were broadcast on May 21, 1944 and August 13, 1944 for the Armed Forces Radio Service (AFRS). The CD was released by Nostalgia Company (CD-2041).

These programs (and many others) are available for free download at Old Time Radio Researchers Group. Here are direct links to the shows featuring Percy (click to play; right click to save the files):
