This week begins in one year and then jumps into another, from 2021 into 2022, which will mark the 20th Anniversary of the debut of the Radio Classics channel (it launched in August of 2002).
As you can imagine we’ll have a number of New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day themed radio episodes from all the top comedy series including The Jack Benny Program, Burns & Allen, Father Knows Best, Phil Harris & Alice Faye, The Great Gildersleeve, Our Miss Brooks, Martin & Lewis, The Red Skelton Show, The Jack Carson Show, Fibber McGee & Molly. The dramatic shows also get into the action with holiday episodes from Sherlock Holmes, Philip Marlowe, Suspense and Casey Crime Photographer.
We also have some birthday tributes: Dana Andrews (I Was A Communist For The FBI, Suspense, Screen Director’s Playhouse’s “The Best Years Of Our Lives”); renowned actress Jeanette Nolan (The Whistler, Suspense, Gunsmoke); Ed Jerome (Blackstone, Ford Theatre); Richard Kollmar (Boston Blackie); musical director Basil “Buzz” Adlam (Dangerous Assignment, Pat Novak For Hire, Man From Homicide, The Six Shooter) as well as writer Isaac Asimov (X-Minus One).
We celebrate the 79th anniversary of the debut of the detective series Mr. & Mrs. North (episodes with both Joseph Curtin & Alice Frost plus Richard Denning & Barbara Britton); as well as the western program Hopalong Cassidy’s 72nd.
Happy New Year.
