RARE 1929 WNAX radio station book published by Gurney Seed and Nursery Compay, Yankton South Dakota.

This book is a treasure trove of information about the early history of this famous station and includes around 50 photos, most of which are of musicians and radio personalities who performed there regularly, live and on the air. In addition to a very early photo of the Lawrence Welk Novelty Orchestra, there are photos of numerous obscure artists and bands. I was not able to picture all of them, there are over 50 photos in this 112 page book.

The cover measures 8.75'' x 5.75''. The glue holding the cover onto the pages has dried out, so the cover is detached although the pages remain securely bound. Aside from the detached cover the book is in excellent clean condition with very minimal handling wear. There are no torn, soiled or damaged pages.
