Happy New Year!
A very busy birthday week on RadioClassics (heck the entire month of May is crammed with radio star's birthdays)!
This week’s highlights are topped by the 65th Anniversary of radio’s Gunsmoke! Before it’s 20 years on television it began it’s decade long radio run on April 26th, 1952. And this year not only do we celebrate it with a First and Finale Special,
We begin the week with Easter and as usual we have comedy blocks with Easter episodes from Phil Harris & Alice Faye, The Life Of Riley, Life with Luigi, The Great Gildersleeve and Baby Snooks. And also two Easter religious episodes The CBS Radio Workshop's "The Son Of Man" featuring the words of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John (as voiced by Herbert Marshall, Victor Jory, Robert Young and Vincent Price!) Plus Ethel Barrymore hosts The Family Theater broadcast, "The Passion and The Death".
This week we celebrate a number of series anniversaries: Bulldog Drummond (76th); The Falcon (74th); Nick Carter Master Detective (74th) and My Friend Irma (70th).
