First of all this is National Truck Driver Appreciation Week, so we have a two-hour block featuring four trucker themed stories courtesy of Escape “The Thirteenth Truck”, The Whistler “Lonely Highway”, Let George Do It “No Riders” and Suspense “Ride Down Cajon”.

We also mark the U.S. Air Force’s 75th Birthday with a two-hour block featuring the following Air Force Vets: General James Stewart as The Six Shooter, Captain William Conrad in Gunsmoke, Lieutenant Van Heflin as Philip Marlowe and Major Clark Gable in Command Performance.
