  1. Hearing that “Suspense” with Lana Turner was a treat. It was interesting when it was noted that she was the top actress of, I think it was 1948 and 1949.

    She was certainly beautiful during the 40’s and eventually became a terrific actress also. I guess being on radio, actors and actresses had to learn to project feeling and emotion strictly with their voices.

    Someone like Lana Turner had that outer beauty that sadly some of our favorites did not. Virginia Gregg, William Conrad, just to name two of the best on radio, couldn’t be the big stars in movies and TV.

    1. For someone who “couldn’t be the big stars in movies and TV”, William Conrad sure spent a lot of years on TV…..

  2. What a great schedule coming up.

    I just love Bergen and Charlie, especially their shows you played this week .. wonderful people and they really keep you smiling and laughing … and the music was fabulous, too. Gershwin is always good and the other songs had truly talented lyrics with the melodies. What a time to be living in those days.

    Somehow you always manage a terrific combination of comedy and scary stuff and educational stuff each week — all I can say is I’m glad you love your job because you are really good at it.

    I watched “The Lost Weekend ” solely because that is one of my favorite Jack Benny shows with Jack and Ray Milland together. I think I liked the spoof better than the movie; although Mr Milland’s delirium with the mouse and bat was pretty creepy (:
