Series Synopsis: For years after radio died, oldtime producer-director Himan Brown had been sounding a forlorn lament: that the medium did not deserve such a fate, that radio drama could still be viable and hold its own with the video monster that had killed it. In 1973 CBS agreed, and Brown was given a slot for the most ambitious comeback attempt in radio’s over-the-hill history. On the Air: The Encyclopedia of Old-Time Radio by John Dunning
