  1. Box 13 – – sealed instructions ep35, 490417

At least 179 enjoyed listening to this one. Sometimes contributors provide a show, and this is one of them. People surely loved it for the audio, since there isn’t more than a sentence in the show notes.


Comedy still has a toe hold with the likes of Fibber McGee, and Jack Benny. Surprisingly, Amos and Andy peg a top spot, but suspenseful drama is king for the day with Escape, and the Shadow. Hold on tight, detectives and science fiction genres aren’t out of the picture, and holding some excellent ground, as is the good old Lone Ranger.


Who knows where we’ll be for the top 10? Clearly, you will when you stay tuned for tomorrow’s final showing. Enjoy revisiting your familiar favorites, or exploring some of what you may have missed, or forgotten about. Tell a friend, and share the shows with them too.
