Jeff Kallman's excellent The Easy Ace: A Journal of Classic Radio
is a wonderful place to spend hours on end, rediscovering the Golden Age of Radio
as it's meant to be discovered and celebrated. Article after article
is filled with a wonderful new vignette about Golden Age Radio History.

[I]n his matchless on-this-day approach to chronicling “yesteryear,”

Vegetables, Ghouls, Ghosts, and Ga-Ga: The Way It Was, 12 January

1940: THEIR FAVOURITE VEGA-TABLES?---Not necessarily, when Sade freezes Vic and Rush’s rummy hand with an earth-shattering bulletin that the family absolutely must have its own vegetable garden, and their indifference in turn freezes Sade, on tonight’s episode of Paul Rhymer’s Vic and Sade (NBC).

1945: "AMERICA’S NUMBER-ONE PINUP GHOUL"---That would be Boris Karloff, as described inimitably enough by Archieda Manageh, on the horn to Duffy, as Karloff guest stars on tonight’s episode of Duffy’s Tavern. (CBS.)

1948: HOLD THOSE GHOSTS---As his doctor listens from somewhere between incredulity and helplessness, a man insisting he be allowed to die in his own home is haunted by a room therein that only he can access . . . in which lives, among other ghosts, a girl who lived in the home almost two centuries ago, on tonight’s episode of Wyllis Cooper’s Quiet, Please, narrated as always by Ernest Chappell. (ABC.)

1951: AUNT SAM WANTS WHO?---She’s a lady from the draft board, and---since his striptease fiancée Peaches LeToure has returned his engagement ring---Archieda Manageh wouldn’t exactly mind catching her draft, on tonight’s episode of Duffy’s Tavern. (NBC.)
