This year’s annual Halloween Week debuts on Monday October 26th and continues through Halloween Weekend.
On to this weeks highlights:
Once again we celebrate Navy Day. It’s the 245th anniversary of the creation of the US Navy so we will feature Lux Radio Theatre’s “The Navy Comes Through”; Milton Berle Show “Salute To Navy Day” plus an episode starring navy vet, Dennis Day.
We bring back our celebration of 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 103rd! The still living actress is featured in a couple from Suspense plus the series The Unexpected.
Additional birthday tributes for Rita Hayworth (Lux Radio Theatre, Charlie McCarthy Show); Cornel Wilde (Suspense); Robert Hall (The Green Hornet); Miriam Hopkins (Suspense, Inner Sanctum Mysteries); Linda Darnell; Lillian Gish (Suspense); Berry Kroeger (Molle Mystery Theatre, Inner Sanctum Mysteries); Martin Blaine (American Portraits, FBI In Peace and War); and Benita Hume (The Halls Of Ivy, Jack Benny Program).
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).
