Old-time Radio Essentials continues its 3rd season with an episode of Birds Eye Open House – "Groucho Brings a Turkey for Thanksgiving Dinner"! This one's Pete's pick, or rather, that of his special guest, Essential Listener Noah Diamond*. Noah's an actor, author, podcaster, Marxian Scholar, and off-Broadway Groucho impersonator, not to mention a very funny guy, so you can imagine the discussion of this episode's merits by Noah and our three co-hosts will be sparkling and rapid-fire and exceptionally funny. But why imagine it? Tune in and find out!

And since we're on the subject of finding things out, while you listen you'll learn if we feel this entry meets the following criteria:

1. Is it truly representative of that series? (Can anyone point to it and say, "Yes, that is what [NAME OF SERIES] was all about.")

2. Is it an episode worthy of inclusion in any and every OTR aficionado's private collection?

So with this in mind, we three bring you, as our thirty-fifth number (but 10th official episode of S3), this episode of Birds Eye Open House, from 11/22/45. We'll introduce the show, play it in its entirety, then discuss it at length. Thanks for joining us, and we hope you enjoy it!

To comment on how we might improve OTR-E, or give suggestions for future discussions, please write to us at f6point3@gmail.com . Put the word "Essentials" in the subject line.

Your feedback means a lot to us! A review at iTunes or at your usual podcatcher would be appreciated.

Next Time: Dave brings us an episode of Let George Do It!

*Noah's body of work (and possibly his body) can be found at noahdiamond.com

"We Offer You...Escape!" -- starting in 1947 for seven years, the CBS show delivered on that promise. Using some of the finest directors and voice actors, and drawing on the world's great adventure stories, Escape has legions of devoted fans seven decades on. Out of 240 episodes, 10 recordings have been lost to time. "The Run of the Yellow Mail", the show's 2nd nationally-broadcast episode, is one of those: not heard since its single live broadcast October 8, 1947. "Yellow Mail" is a fast-moving adventure yarn about the early days of the railroads out west.

Project Audion has faithfully recreated it from a surviving script via live transcription using a transcontinental voice cast brought together via Zoom:

Scott R. McKinley, NJ

Paul Arbisi, IL

Greg McAfee, CA

Jacob Palka, IL

Douglas Herman, CA

Ken Raney, TX

Tom Konkle, CA

With Larry Groebe in Texas helming the production
