Once again we celebrate The US Navy’s Birthday (created on Oct 15th, 1775) by featuring Lux Radio Theatre’s “The Navy Comes Through”; Milton Berle Show “Salute To Navy Day” plus an episode starring navy vet, Dennis Day.
First of all a reminder, this year’s Halloween Week begins on Monday the 25th and runs through Sunday the 31st. Quite possibly the most popular themed week on the RadioClassics channel, seven straight days of all Halloween themed programming.
