PRODUCED BY ATWATER KENT AND PRESSED BY COLUMBIA RECORD COMPANY, THE RECORD IS A DEMONSTRATION RECORDING FOR ATWATER KENT DEALERS TO PLAY FOR CUSTOMERS TO SHOW THEM THE "GOLDEN TONE" OF THEIR NEW RADIOS. THE MUSIC, A MARCH CALLED "THE GOLDEN VOICE", WAS COMMISSIONED BY ATWATER KENT AND WRITTEN BY ARTHUR PRYOR WITH MUSICAL DIRECTION BY JOSEF PASTERNAK. SIDE 1 IS A SALES PITCH WITH SHORT DEMONSTRATIONS OF HOW EACH INSTRUMENT WOULD SOUND ON THE NEW LINE OF RADIOS. SIDE 2 IS A FULL VERSION OF THE "THE GOLDEN VOICE" ALONG WITH ANOTHER SALES PITCH.
