    Re: do you believe in magic

    WTG, that is a different find. I saw one on e-bay selling for $4.99. Anyway, here is some addirional information.

    I would like brief, basic information about the c. 1936 radio show
    "Thank You, Stusia": premise/story line(s), major characters & cast,
    etc. A promotional token indicates that the series was sponsored by
    Alka-Seltzer and may have been based in 15th century Spain ("Gracias
    Stusia 1477"). There was also a song titled "Thank You, Stusia,"
    possibly the program theme, written by Jack Frost in 1936.

    Re: do you believe in magic

    Thank you for finding that, and the answers responding to what it is. I dug one years ago, and at the time I tried half-heartedly, (or half-assly) for what exactly it was for. Knew it was alka seltzer, but that's it. Could not place a year on it. Kudos to a great find!
