Okay on to the highlights:
We have a our annual Labor Day Special featuring An American Gallery’s biography of famed labor leader Samuel Gompers as portrayed by Lawrence Dobkin. And this year it will be followed by an hour of Life Of Riley episodes starring William Bendix as lovable laborer, blue collar aircraft factory worker Chester A. Riley.
We also celebrate a radio debut anniversaries: Jimmy Durante’s 87th and The Bickerson’s 74th, plus we bring back our annual Back To School Special which offers up four episodes of Our Miss Brooks starring Eve Arden as Madison High School English teacher, Connie Brooks.
Heading up our birthday tributes:
Movie stars: Claudette Colbert (Lux Radio’s The Awful Truth); Edmond O’Brien (Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar, Suspense); Anne Seymour (Inner Sanctum Mysteries); and Peter Lawford (Suspense’s The Moonstone & The Terribly Strange Bed).
Plus birthday tributes for the following authors: Roald Dahl (Escape’s Poison); and O. Henry (The Cisco Kid).
Finally, a unique special celebrating the anniversary of the launch of a landmark television series. The original Star Trek debuted on September 8th, 1966 and we are marking that event with a two-hour special. It features scripts by three writers who wrote episodes of Star Trek: Theodore Sturgeon, Robert Bloch and show creator Gene Roddenberry. Plus we bring back a Suspense episode starring Dr. “Bones” McCoy actor DeForest Kelley. This special was suggested to me by long time fans, Colleen and George in Connecticut who have joined me multiple times on the now retired Radio Spirits sponsored sea cruise.
