On To The Highlights:
First of all, in response to a number of listener emails queries, this year’s all Halloween themed episodes begins on Monday, October 28th.
Okay on to this week’s highlights:
We have our annual Columbus Day special (Life with Luigi, Stan Freberg) and also mark Canada’s Thanksgiving with a two-hour special featuring Canadian born lead actors: Larry Thor (Lundar, Manitoba) in Broadway Is My Beat, Stacy Harris (Big Timber, Quebec) in This Is Your FBI and Raymond Burr (New Westminster, British Columbia) in Fort Laramie.
The birthdays are led by Marsha Hunt’s 102nd! The still living actress is featured in a couple from Suspense plus the series The Unexpected.
Additional birthday tributes for Rita Hayworth; Robert Hall (The Green Hornet); Miriam Hopkins (Suspense, Inner Sanctum Mysteries); Lillian Gish (Suspense); Berry Kroeger (Molle Mystery Theatre, Inner Sanctum Mysteries); Linda Darnell; Barney Phillips (Dragnet, Escape, Gunsmoke); Bela Lugosi (Suspense, Abbott & Costello); Benita Hume (The Halls Of Ivy) and producer Harry Alan Towers (The Black Museum, The Third Man).
We also are playing A Man Of Steel Marathon as a birthday celebration for Superman co-creator, Jerry Siegel as well as a tribute for actress Jan Miner (The Chase, X-Minus One); plus I will once again share some excerpts of an interview with Miner recorded in the early 1970s (on WTIC’s Golden Age Of Radio Program).
We celebrate the following radio debut anniversaries: Michael Shayne 75th (with both Wally Maher and Jeff Chandler as Shayne), Let George Do It 73rd (starring a pre-Johnny Dollar Bob Bailey); Big Town 82nd, Lux Radio Theatre 85th and Sherlock Holmes 89th (celebrated with a two-hour four episode special featuring four different acting tandems as Holmes & Watson.)
