We have a couple two-hour specials to mark Veteran’s Day. One is the two-hour August 1945 Command Performance hosted by Bing Crosby and marking the end of WWII. The other features two tremendous war stories as produced for the Cavalcade Of America plus Words At War’s They Call It Pacific as well as Norman Corwin’s End Of The War Special, Fourteen August hosted by Orson Welles.
We also has some great birthday tributes led by the 105th birthday of “the still with us” radio, film and TV actor Norman Lloyd! He’ll be heard in Suspense’s “My Own Murderer”.
