For all you youngsters: Imagine being 21 (as I was in small-town Oklahoma) when this episode was created and aired. Then imagine having had years of actual experience in radio with (or, incredibly, inside) a tiny home-town station. These low-power stations no longer exist, but they were very Internet-like; local radio-station  info was the best/fastest quality of any source, so folks wisely listened in homes and cars, and non-local news/programming was cleverly transmitted over phone lines... since no other lines existed. One could trust that big national stories would interrupt local programs. The point: I knew that this CBS radio theater series was real literature, real art, and really doomed to fail because of a sadly changing audience that could neither listen to nor deeply imagine/read a simple story without being shown pictures, as is the case of infants. This was the fruit of declining education. If you enjoy this tale, or written stories/novels, you almost certainly owe thanks to an unusual mentor...and you are blessed. Your enhanced between-the-ears computer will make your life better past the day you die.

I really enjoyed this one I've listened to every episode up to this one. Although I must confess Jenny's voice is extremely irritating. She sounds exactly like the voice on the Goldilocks 7-Up advert.

I loved these shows as a kid! Every Thursday night I would run to the radio to make sure I didn't miss a second! Thanks for putting these on youtube. And I agree with MzSunnyJeep...listening to the news reports and commercials is a great walk down memory lane.

I don't know about any one else, but I didn't skip to the story, I love hearing things that were going on back when I was just 7. Thanks for the uploads with original commercials.
