The final week of May is absolutely filled to the brim! We have our annual Memorial Day Tribute featuring Norman Corwin’s On A Note of Triumph V-E Day Celebration as well as portions of my past visits with both Corwin and radio actor and WWII vet, Cliff Carpenter.
We’ll have, not one but, two different birthday specials for Vincent Price. One of them features new the the channel episodes of The Saint plus some of my past visit with his son, V. Barrett Price and his daughter, Victoria Price. The other special contains some of his greatest radio work including Escape’s “Three Skeleton Key”, Suspense’s “Pit & The Pendulum”, Yours Truly Johnny Dollar’s “The Price Of Fame Matter” and a new one from the CBS Radio Workshop known as “Speaking Of Cinderella.”
