GUEST,Songster Bob Carter family -Magic Water crystals? (9) RE: Carter family -Magic Water crystals? 22 Oct 02

Actually, the "Crazy Water Crystals" weren't that bad, and I don't think they were the Carter's sponsors for those WXRA broadcasts. The prime mover for that station, if I recall, was a quack doctor and his monkey-gland treatments, though I'm likely wrong about that. But I don't remember the Crazy Water Crystals being sponsors of anyone but the Mainer band.

As for what the crystals were and did, I'm even less sure, though I suspect it was something like Alka-seltzer or some other bromide, intended for treatment of stomach ills. I'll see what I can find on the web.

More later, maybe.
