This week we have birthday celebrations for motion picture stars, famed radio performers and cartoon voice actors and more.

We will celebrate June Foray’s 101st (she passed away a year ago just month or so shy of her 100th) with her appearances in episodes of The Stan Freberg Show, Suspense & The CBS Radio Workshop. Cartoon fans know her best for another Rocky as in Rocky The Flying Squirrel on The Bullwinkle Show.

Additional birthday tributes for Eddie “Rochester” Anderson (The Jack Benny Program); Mickey Rooney (Lux Radio Theatre’s “Strike Up The Band”, Screen Director’s “The Human Comedy”); Dolores Costello (Drew Barrymore’s grandmother!) Paul Muni (Academy Award Theater, Suspense);  Alfred Shirley (Dr. Watson on Mutual Radio’s Sherlock Holmes); Jack Mather (The Cisco Kid); Martha Scott (Suspense, The Great Gildersleeve); Alice Yourman (Archie Andrews); John Houseman (The Mercury Theater On The Air); and H.G. Wells (three of his stories adapted for Escape plus his one and only recorded visit with Orson Welles)

We also mark the 65th anniversary of the debut of The Six Shooter with Jimmy Stewart and the 70th anniversary of Life With Luigi.
