Leading the birthday tributes this time is a former child actress still with us and turning 80. Anne Whitfield played youngest daughter Phyllis on the Phil Harris & Alice Faye Show, and in addition to a couple episodes from that popular comedy series, she also takes on a dramatic role working alongside John Lund in an offering from Suspense.

Additional birthday block for the following folks: Larry Thor (Broadway Is My Beat, Suspense, Rocky Jordan); Willard Waterman (The Great Gildersleeve, The Whistler); Fred MacMurray (Suspense, Bright Star and Lux Radio Theater’s version of “The Miracle Of The Bells”); Raymond Massey (NBC War Bond Parade special, Arch Oboler’s Plays, The Inner Sanctum Mysteries); Lurene Tuttle (Sam Spade, The Whistler, The Red Skelton Show); Tarzan creator Edgar Rice Burroughs; announcer Don Wilson (The Jack Benny Program); Amanda Randolph (The Beulah Show); singer and dancer Peggy Ryan (guest on The Bob Hope Show) and Barbara Jo Allen aka Vera Vague (The Bob Hope Show).
