Dear Mr. Edwards,

Local University of California professor Kenneth Hough has written a scholarly document detailing the February 23, 1942 Japanese submarine I-17 shelling of the Ellwood Oil Field. (There's a video documentary clip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEew8seCX0Q .) I have attended two of professor Hough's very detailed lectures before the Goleta Historical Society in which he mentioned that entertainer Bob Hope staged a show at the Goleta Marine airfield about February 1943. He has been searching for a recording, or indeed any information, of this event.

It is in regard to this radio show that I am contacting you. I have searched very thoroughly for any information at all, but to date, have found nothing but these which are incorrect:

430209 - Broadcast from the Santa Anita Ordinance Center
430307 - Rehearsal for the Upcoming Pepsodent Show [Gardner field]

Marine Corps Supply Depot [Barstow] With - Bob Hope - The Bob Hope Show(3 - 29:28

Are you able to provide any information about Hope's show at the Goleta Marine base?

Thank you for any information you may be able to provide.

Best regards,
Larry Dighera
