Headlining the list this week is a two-hour “Love For Lucy” special marking Lucille Ball’s birthday. In addition to a couple episodes of My Favorite Husband she guest stars on The Kraft Music Hall and gets dramatic on one from Suspense. In a second special, more drama as Lucy joins Mark Stevens in Lux Radio Theatre’s adaptation of their 1946 film noir crime drama “The Dark Corner” plus another offering from Suspense.

We bring back an annual birthday block for motion picture leading man, Robert Mitchum as he’ll be heard in an hour long Suspense radio version of the motion picture “Crossfire” plus star in the half hour episode “Death At Life Oak” also produced for Suspense.
