Hope everyone is doing okay, hope you are safely passing the time. Happy to be there for you to provide some escapist entertainment.

This week we celebrate a number of series anniversaries including the 77th of both The Adventures Of The Falcon and The Adventures Of Nero Wolfe. We have a First & Finale Special airing to celebrate Dimension X’s 70th anniversary and also pay tribute to This Is Your FBI (75th) and My Friend Irma (73rd).

As to the birthday tributes we honor:  M*A*S*H and Dragnet TV actor Harry Morgan (Mystery In The Air ); Paul McGrath (The Inner Sanctum Mysteries, Suspense); Frankie Thomas Jr (Tom Corbett, Space Cadet) and Sylvia Picker (Suzy on Box 13).

We have a Man Of Steel Marathon featuring all six parts of an Adventures Of Superman Storyline from the summer of 1940. The comic book superhero debuted on radio 80 years ago this year (in February 1940), so throughout 2020 we are periodically playing storylines from that first year.

And finally, as this week ends on Easter Sunday, we once again offer up comedy blocks with Easter episodes from Phil Harris & Alice Faye, Our Miss Brooks, The Life Of Riley, The Great Gildersleeve and Baby Snooks.  And also two Easter religious episodes The CBS Radio Workshop‘s “The Son Of Man” as well as The Family Theatre broadcast, “The Passion and The Death”.
