Happy Valentine’s Day, or as we like to say it on RadioClassics, Happy Birthday, Jack!
This year Jack Benny is honored with two different specials: the first features new to the channel episodes from his long running comedy series. Whereas the second special finds Benny working with Gail Patrick in Lux Radio Theater’s “Killer Kates” and stealing the show from Claudette Colbert and Basil Rathbone in a very creative episode of The Screen Guild Theater.
And it’s not all about Jack – we also have a birthday celebrations for the following folks: Mary Jane Croft (Suspense, Broadway Is My Beat); Joseph Kearns (The Whistler, Suspense, Gunsmoke and others); Edgar Bergen (four Bergen & McCarthy episodes plus hour long broadcasts of The Chase & Sanborn Hour and the New Edgar Bergen Hour); Cesar Romero (Guest On Burns & Allen Show); Chester Morris (Boston Blackie); Staats Cotsworth (Casey Crime Photographer & CBS Radio Workshop); Mary Lee Robb (Marjorie on The Great Gildersleeve); Adolphe Menjou (Lux Radio Theater’s “Morning Glory”) and presidential daughter Margaret Truman (co-starring with Jimmy Stewart in a radio version of the comedy “Jackpot” plus appearing on The Dennis Day Show).
Speaking of White House residents: we offer up our annual tribute to the 16th US President with Abraham Lincoln themed episodes of Crime Classics, American Portraits, Suspense and new to the channel this week, The Academy Award Theater’s version of the 1939 motion picture “Young Mr. Lincoln” starring Henry Fonda.
We also mark two radio series debut anniversaries; Superman’s 77th and The Family Theater’s 70th.
And last but not least our annual tribute to the 16th US President with Abraham Lincoln themed episodes of Crime Classics, The Mysterious Traveler, Suspense and American Portraits.
In addition to some Valentine’s Day comedy, we also once again celebrate George Valentine’s Day with three Let George Do It episodes starring Bob Bailey as a private detective named, yes, Valentine.
