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.

Let's Go To Press: The Way It Is, 24 August

In which your extinguished editor channels Walter Winchell for a little mad fun with a little mad news . . . ruminates (if that is the correct word) on a particularly whacky job ad out of Chicago (the ad is real enough, which can be good or bad, depending upon your point of view) . . . and presents otherwise his customary brew of bluesy jazz and straight up blues.

Not to mention presenting, as his evening's old-time radio selection, in his customary manner of sharing it on its original date of airing and staying out of your way otherwise, The CBS Radio Workshop: The Billion-Dollar Failure of Figger Fallup, reviewed earlier today.

Announcer/co-banterer: Patty Price. Engineer: Jon Lindquist. Writer/producer/director: Yours, truly.
