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 18th Annual!) will air Monday July 20th – Sunday July 26th.

As to this week, we celebrate the series debut anniversaries of the following: Mercury Theatre On The Air’s 82nd; The Man Called X’s 76th; Adventures Of Sam Spade’s 74rd; Jeff Regan Investigator’s 72nd (with three different actors as Regan – Jack Webb, Frank Graham, Paul Dubov); Dangerous Assignment’s 71st; Tales Of The Texas Ranger’s 70th; Judy Canova Show‘s 77th; Casey Crime Photographer‘s 77th; Escape’s 73rd and The Line-Up’s 70th.

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); Marie McDonald (guest on Colgate Sports Newsreel) and opera singer Dorothy Kirsten (guest on Bergen & McCarthy Show).
