Bookmark and Share
The week, we present more great sounds from radio’s golden age, including a short lived, but very interesting series called GREAT SCENES FROM GREAT PLAYS, offering condensed versions of theatrical ventures. We’ll be listening to their production of Dark Victory, starring Celeste Holm and Walter Abel. We’ll also tune into THE GREAT GIKLDERSLEEVE starring Willard Waterman in the title role. And we’ll hear a 1952 broadcast of GUNSMOKE, with William Conrad as Marshall Matt Dillon.
