May 19th to May 25th, 2013 RadioClassics Show Schedules

Raymond Burr

While we celebrate the birthday’s this week of a number of familiar folks, I want to highlight one in particular; Raymond Burr. Why? Because not only do we have TV’s Perry Mason in episodes of Suspense, Pat Novak For Hire and multiple episodes of Fort Laramie, but he stars in a tremendous one person new to the channel production of The CBS Radio Workshop. Known as “The Silent Witness”, it is a courtroom drama featuring only Burr. Great radio!

The other major name being celebrated is Jimmy Stewart and like Burr, he will headline two different specials. A Lux Radio Theater version of his western motion picture, “Winchester ’73” as well as multiple episodes of his very own western radio series, The Six-Shooter. I also will share with you portions of my visit with Charles & Erna Reinhart, the c0-authors of the very comprehensive book, Jimmy Stewart On The Air which covers Stewart entire radio career.

Additional birthday tributes for Arthur Conan Doyle (creator of Sherlock Holmes); British actor Herbert Marshall (The Man Called X); Dennis Day (A Day In The Life Of Dennis Day, The Jack Benny Program); Barbara Luddy (The First Nighter Program); radio director Jock McGregor (Nick Carter, The Crime Club, The Sealed Book) and Jeanne Bates (a featured role in a new one from Let George Do It).

We have a 5-part Yours Truly, Johnny Marathon as well as a Man of Steel Marathon (A six-part storyline from July 1940) plus additional new to the channel this week episodes from Hopalong Cassidy, The Shadow, Bergen & McCarthy, Jack Benny, Phil Harris & Alice Faye, The Damon Runyon Theater, Screen Director’s Playhouse, Suspense, CBS Radio Workshop, Suspense, Lux Radio Theater and Frontier Fighters.

  1. in 1963-4, I was in Vietnam and Raymond Burr visited our unit. When he got back home he called my mother to let her know that he had seen me and I was doing well.

    1. That was so thoughtful of him. How exciting for your Mom to hear from him with assurances. Thanks for sharing.
