Radio City Playhouse Old Time Radio Program

Radio City Playhouse
½ hour drama

This radio drama anthology series first aired in 1948 as a summer replacement show, but proved so popular that it made the regular rotation and ran until 1950. While each week it had a new story, characters, and setting, the starring roles often went to John Larkin and Jan Miner. Miner did such a good job in the suspenseful premiere episode “Long Distance” that she was brought back frequently, and it gave her career a bit of a jump start. (Many of us know her for her role as “Madge” the manicurist in those 1970s Palmolive commercials.) The episodes usually dealt with tense life and death situations, often with complex moral issues at stake. Radio City Playhouse has been favorably compared to such old time radio classics as Suspense and Lux Radio Theater. And with writers such as: Paul Gallico, Cornell Woolrich, Ray Bradbury, Stephen Vincent Benet, Cornell Woolrich, and Agatha Christie its little wonder why. The show was narrated and directed by Harry W. Junkin.

If you want high quality ½ hour dramas, this is a great program to listen to. There is no substitute for a fine story expertly told.
