Wednesday Night at the Radio!

Information Please! (told you I was gonna play more of these): "John P. Marquand" (17 January 1944). Does anyone read The Late George Apley anymore? Hell, I read it only because my mom made me. Read it. As far as the show: dee-lightful.

Citchers and patchers have reported, so how 'bout The Adventures of Babe Ruth! Kidnapped (25 June 1934). Don't think I've ever played any of these before, but it's quite bizarre; even bizarrer are the long commercials for the between-the-wars Naval Reserve at either end. Fun fact: the Sultan of Twat (as he is known among baseball aficionados) was still playing in 1934 (.288 with 22 homers).
