  • Series Synopsis: When The Columbia Workshop opened, “there was no show on the air without many limitations, taboos, and sacred cows,” wrote CBS executive Douglas Coulter in Columbia Workshop Plays. “The way was clear for the inauguration of a radio series without precedents, one that would experiment with new ideas, new writers, new techniques; a series that would stand or fall by the impression made on a public of unbiased listeners, with no restriction save the essential and reasonable one of good taste.” On the Air: The Encyclopedia of Old-Time Radio by John Dunning
