Your Hit Parade, NBC-TV, 1952

I recently found some photos at my father’s apartment. I had never seen them before.

The pictures, taken of a television screen, are from Your Hit Parade, in 1952. I don’t know who took them.

The picture, here, is of Eileen Wilson, Dorothy Collins, and my mother (Sue Bennett). They were singing “Tea for Two.” (My mother made note of the song title, in pen, in the border of the picture.)

Johnny and Helen Holmes, and OTR

This Friday, October 12th (from 6-8 p.m.), my friends Johnny and Helen Holmes, of Mount Holly, New Jersey, will be hosting an evening of Old-Time Radio.

The pre-Halloween event (it is being called "Fright Night") will be taking place at a Mount Holly coffee house, The Daily Grind. 

As part of the event, Johnny and Helen will be playing three well-known Old-Time Radio broadcasts:  "The Hitchhiker," from the program Suspense, "Valse Triste," from the series Lights Out, and "Three Skeleton Key," from the program Escape.

The Daily Grind is located at 48 High Street, in Mount Holly.  The phone number is: (609) 267-8330.

If you're in (or near) the Mount Holly area on Friday, I hope you'll attend!
