Happy Thanksgiving To All My U.S. of A. folks (and happy belated Thanksgiving to my Canadian listeners as it was back on October 14th).

As is usually the case, we’ll have lots of holiday themed episodes airing on the channel this week, but that’s not all.

We have Centennial Celebrations for two of radio’s biggest stars; Howard Duff (Sam Spade, Suspense’s “The Kandy Tooth”) and Harry Bartell (Escape, Gunsmoke, Fort Laramie, Suspense, etc).

Additional birthday tributes for Elliott Lewis (Casebook of Gregory Hood, Voyage Of The Scarlet Queen and of course The Phil Harris & Alice Faye Show); Ralph Bell (Mysterious Traveler, The Chase); Richard Crenna (Our Miss Brooks, The Great Gildersleeve); J. Scott Smart (The Fat Man); Don MacLaughlin (Counterspy); Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain (CBS Radio Workshop’s take on “Roughin’ It”); sci-fi writer Frederik Pohl (X Minus One’s “Tunnel Under The World”) and mystery writer John Dickson Carr (Murder By Experts, Suspense).

    Greg: Here is a mystery for you and the OTR fans. Can you tell me what the expression “I have a TL for you” means? I have heard this 1940s slang term used several times by Fibber McGee, George Burns and Jack Benny to name a few. But I’m not sure what it means. I asked my 88-year-old mother before she passed away three years ago and she didn’t know. The best I’ve found after much digging through Google is “Touch Last,” a sort of child’s game where you the last person touched on the playground had to tell a bit of gossip about someone. I’m not really satisfied with that. Is this the true definition? Or do you have a better idea what it might mean? I’d appreciate any sleuthing I can get. Thanks!

      Here is what a listener named Judy shared with me via email

      Greg,

      Bigsky Max asked a question on 11/22/13 about what TL means. My father told me that it meant “Trade Lance,” meaning, I heard a compliment for you but you need to give a compliment to me before I’ll tell you what it is–Trade Lance. Don’t know if that’s accurate but that’s the only meaning I know.
