+ The earliest airings of Favorite Story originated from the KFI, Hollywood station at which the entire series was recorded. The first sponsor, Bullock's Department Stores, was the early beneficiary of what had to have been a sweetheart deal for both Bullock's and Frederick Ziv. Ziv gained a high profile local sponsor for those first crucial thirteen episodes, and Bullock's launched what would eventually become one of the most successful independent syndications in broadcasting history. Called variously, My Favorite Story, Your Favorite Story or simply Favorite Story, those earliest broadcasts aired from as early as the Spring and late Summer of 1946. By the time that Ziv realized he had another winner on his hands, and the first fifty-two installments were pressed, Ziv fanned out his vaunted 100-man sales force throughout the U.S. and Canada. Those first sales of fifty-two installment packages resulted in another re-launch of the series throughout the U.S. and Canada during the Fall of 1947.
