Monday March 8th is International Women’s Day and this is also Women’s History Month. SiriusXM RadioClassics is paying special tribute this week with three different themed specials.
Unsung Women Of History A block dedicated to some lesser known but very influential American women as detailed on the radio series; Inheritance and The Cavalcade Of America. It includes Virginia Gregg as 19th century MD, Doctor Elizabeth Blackwell and Ethel Barrymore as 19th century journalist Anne Royall.
Legendary Women Of Comedy A block dedicated to two of the most famous funny ladies on radio and television. An hour of Lucille Ball starring in her I Love Lucy radio precursor My Favorite Husband, then an hour of Eve Arden as English teacher Connie Brooks in Our Miss Brooks.
Classic Radio’s Top Female Private Eye A Block featuring Natalie Park as Candy Matson. Three in a row from that late 1940s early 1950s detective series.
In the birthday tributes we honor the following: Claire Trevor (Lux’s Key Largo, Big Town, Suspense); Georgia Ellis (Miss Kitty on Gunsmoke); Mandel Kramer (Yours Truly Johnny Dollar, The Chase, Gangbusters, X-Minus One); Marguerite Chapman (Screen Guild Players); Will Geer (Grandpa Walton on Television heard in episodes of The Columbia Workshop and Gangbusters) and announcer Harlow Wilcox (Fibber McGee & Molly, Suspense).
Finally, in the do-not-miss category be sure to check out “Dick Tracy in B-Flat” as presented on Command Performance. A real tour de force production which combines music and comic strips featuring an incredible cast including Bing Crosby as Dick Tracy, Dinah Shore as Tess Trueheart, Bob Hope as Flattop, Frank Sinatra as Vitamin Flintheart, Jimmy Durante as The Mole and many more.
And one more thing; remember most of the U.S. observes Daylight Saving Time and the Spring Forward occurs in the wee hours on Sunday the 14th. So one less hour of RadioClassics as we’ll jump from 2am ET to 3am ET.
