Retro Radio Memories: Out Of This World – “Dead Of Night” (1947)

Retro Radio Memories 1
Out of This World is a hard radio program to track information down on…probably because the episode you will hear was in fact a pilot radio episode that never originally aired, instead the series would become “Escape” and would in fact use the same script for its ‘audition’ pilot a mere month later!

The character of Toby is played by then future Honeymooners co-star, Art Carney. The tale this evening is about something…I know a bit about…it concerns a ventriloquist and his dummy who it would seem has a mind of its own.

So why not leave the dishes in the sink and travel back with us to a simpler time as we prepare for the “Dead of Night”!
