This is a radio program that aired on WTF radio featuring the whimsical characters from the favorite children's story 'Brer Rabbit'. The sponsor, "The Prescott Group" used the program to promote the many industries in which it had vested interests.
Even though it was a radio program, all the performers were in black-face.
