Monday Night at the Radio!

Fibber McGee and Molly: "The War Is Not Almost Over" (12-7-43). Everybody stops by to abuse and disabuse Fibber.

Here's a wild one. Information Please, with the regulars and a guest named Myron Wallace, whom host Clifton Fadiman describes as "a mere beardless boy, a student at the University of Michigan, selected by his university to represent the spirit of youth on our program."

Myron Wallace, the spirit of youth, of course, is now the ancient 60 Minutes reporter with the head like a giant melanoma, Mike Wallace. As you might imagine, Mike comes across as a smug little jerk. Within five minutes you just want to pound him. Great stuff. Date: February 7, 1939.
