Yet another busy, and hopefully very entertaining week, on the channel as we mark some series debut anniversaries, celebrate some birthdays and even welcome back Major League Baseball.
It’s Doris Day’s 90th so we have her as the featured vocalist and cast member on The Bob Hope Show. Also still with us is busy radio, television and film writer Ernest Kinoy (he is 89), so we’ll celebrate him with one of his scripts on Nick Carter, Master Detective plus two other new to the channel this week episodes from series he worked on, X-Minus One and Doctor Six-gun.
Other birthday specials: Jack Webb (Dragnet, Pat Novak For Hire, Jeff Regan Investigator, Pete Kelly’s Blues); Bette Davis (Academy Award Theater’s “Jezebel”, Screen Guild Players “The Little Foxes”); Gregory Peck (Suspense, Screen Director’s Playhouse “Yellow Sky”); Spencer Tracy (Lux Radio Theater’s “Arrowsmith”); Bea Benaderet (The Family Theater, The Everyman’s Theater); Maurice Tarplin (The Mysterious Traveler, Strange Dr. Weird, Boston Blackie); Les Damon (The Falcon); comedian Henry Morgan (CBS Radio Workshop’s “The Crazy Life”); Frances Langford (The Bickersons); Lou Merrill (Crime Classics, The Whistler) and John Brown (Damon Runyon Theater, Digger on The Life Of Riley).
We mark the 75th anniversary of the radio debut of Mr. District Attorney with back to back new to the channel episodes starring David Brian.
And last but not least; we have a two-hour back to baseball block featuring the following: Destination Freedom’s “The Ballad Of Satchel Paige”; The Jack Benny Program with Hall of Fame Pitcher, Bob Fellar; Abbott & Costello’s Who’s On First routine, plus Hall of Fame Manager Casey Stengel and Hall of Fame outfielder Ted Williams stopping by The Colgate Sports Newsreel hosted by Bill Stern.
