Hard to believe we are about halfway through November already, before you know it we will be playing tons of Thanksgiving themed episodes followed soon after by Christmas shows.
This week though begins with Veteran’s Day and this year we have two different two-hour specials marking it. The first is an annual tradition featuring two Norman Corwin penned episodes; This Is War: America At War from February 14th, 1942 and Fourteen August hosted by Orson Welles and broadcast in 1945 to mark the end of World War Two. Sandwiched in between those two episodes will be a Revolutionary War story on American Portraits and a Korean War thriller on Suspense (Flight of the Bumblebee starring Fred MacMurray).
The second Veteran’s Day Special begins with back to back new to the channel offerings from The CBS Radio Workshop. One follows the fighting boys into battle (Harmonica Solo) the other looks at the impact the war has on civilians (Air Raid). In the second part of that two-hour block we have Jimmy Stewart in Suspense’s Mission Completed and Frank Lovejoy in The Cavalcade Of America’s A Walk In The Sun.
Also this week, birthday tributes for Jim Jordan (Fibber McGee); lovely blonde movie star, Veronica Lake; Dick Powell (Richard Diamond); cartoon voice wiz Daws Butler (he was Yogi Bear, Quick Draw McGraw and so on); famed author Robert Louis Stevenson; and a centennial celebration for character actor George Petrie (District Attorney Markham on Philo Vance).
