Lots of significant series anniversaries and birthdays this week. But first, I want to remind all of you that this year’s Christmas In July Week (The 17th Annual!) will air Monday July 22nd – Sunday July 28th.
As to this week, we celebrate the series debut anniversaries of the following: Mercury Theatre On The Air’s 81st; The Man Called X’s 75th; Adventures Of Sam Spade’s 73rd; Jeff Regan Investigator’s 71st (with three different actors as Regan – Jack Webb, Frank Graham, Paul Dubov); Dangerous Assignment’s 70th; Tales Of The Texas Ranger’s 69th; and The Stan Freberg Show’s 62nd.
Heading up the birthday blocks will be a 90-minute special for comedy legend Milton Berle (two from his series plus Berle’s visit to Duffy’s Tavern). We also mark the birthdays of motion picture character actor Thomas Mitchell (Suspense); radio and cartoon voice performer Bill Thompson (Old Timer and Wallace Wimple on Fibber McGee & Molly); film and radio actor Glenn Langan (Mystery Is My Hobby); series creator Philips H. Lord (Gangbusters); and host Graham McNamee (Behind The Mike);
