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

is filled with a wonderful new vignette about Golden Age Radio History.

The Fortune Seekers: The Way It Was, 5 September

A wealthy businessman, whose wife abandoned him and eluded his fourteen-year pursuit of her and her second husband, remarries to a widow whose freshly-graduated son he takes into his business, unaware that the young man's mother has married him for his fortune alone . . . and bigamously.

And he receives a shock when his remorseful former wife knocks on his library window and asks him to take care of a daughter he never knew he had, born shortly after she first abandoned him, to which he agrees . . . threatening his current wife and stepson's plans for splitting his considerable estate.
