Hey folks a reminder the phone number for the SiriusXM RadioClassics channel where you can call in and tell us what series you enjoy the most and why, is 833-R-Classic (833-725-2774). Your comments might also make it to the air!

This week we mark the 83rd anniversary of the national radio debut of Fibber McGee & Molly (April 16th, 1935) with episodes from early in the series two-decade long run. And we have a second block featuring that series (and more) as we mark the birthday of lead actress Marian Jordan.

We also celebrate the 83rd anniversary of the national debut of Lights Out (added to the NBC nationwide network on April 17th, 1935) and the 75th anniversary of the CBS series Romance (with the episode Affair At Aden starring Bob Bailey and Jeanne Bates).
