C. P. MacGregor

 By 1935 there were four major transcription services supplying 350 radio stations: World Transcription Service, Standard Radio Library, RCA/NBC Thesaurus, and the C.P. MacGregor service. Each of these companies provided a basic library of radio shows complete in themselves except for local commercial tie-ins, a library of musical selections, a license to play them on the air, and periodic issues of new discs and replacements. These libraries did not "belong" to a radio station; they were leased for as long as station paid the necessary fees.

There's Honey On the Moon Tonight
C.P. "Chick" MacGregor was a prolific producer of music transcriptions and syndicated programming for radio. Among the discs his company distributed to subscribers for a period in the late 1930s was this series of 10-inch 78rpm discs with label credit to MacGregor as the primary artist
