Wednesday Night at the Radio!

Information Please: Frequent guest and author of Mrs. Miniver, Jan Struther; ambassador to Moscow and showtrial-approving com-symp Joseph E. Davies (19 December 1941).

And Gunsmoke: "The Cast" (21 November 1953). Sponsored, you'll note, by "Post Toasties, the heap good cornflakes." Oy vey.

And Vic and Sade: "The Lunges Are Coming" (9 June 1944). Listen to this show much and you'll understand why Paul Rhymer, its sole writer for the 12 or 13 years of its run, was often compared to Mark Twain. Actually, he's funnier.
