Monday Night at the Radio!

Tonight, the gently nostalgic (and quite witty) The Halls of Ivy, with Ronald Colman as the bookish president of Ivy College and his real-life wife Benita as his wife, "the former Victoria Cromwell of the English musical comedy stage." This one is titled "Is Eddie Grey a Thief?" (2-24-50). You'll be amazed at how much Ronnie and Benita remind you of such legendary couples-in-education as Ward Churchill and Natsu Saito. The Schlitz commercials are pretty funny, too: "I was curious . . . "

Next, Frank Lovejoy as hard-hitting reporter Randy Stone of the Chicago Star in Night Beat. This one is called "The Night is a Weapon" (4-9-50).
