Thank you, Elinore, for the name of the show "Fibber Magee and Molly". I like NPR also...they have such good programs.

This brought back a lot of memories for me, too. I still love radio, but listen mainly to NPR. My favorite shows were The Shadow, Inner Sanctum, and Fibber Magee and Molly - the show with the overfull closet. Thanks edcotton for sharing this fun puzzle. It's a great photo. Elinore


Hi Merrie, I am so glad this puzzle brought back such wonderful memories. That is what I love about the old pictures; they are 'worth a thousand words' and you shared a part of the thousand words you had in your head.

Great photo/puzzle, Ed. There are many memories for me in this Nana had chairs just like those...even in the 60's, radio was entertainment for our station would have a half-hour program that cycled through things like The Shadow (who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?? The Shadow Knows!) : Inner Sanctum (I think) with the eerie squeeky door sound; other mysteries and comedy programs (the one with the closet door opening and everything falling out...can't remember the name of it). We had a radio in one part of the barn and I would linger there during feeding until the station break then rush through the feeding on the other side of the barn so I could get back to hear the end of the story. Thankfully it was only on at night Mon-Fri or the one side of the barn would never get cleaned...ha ha ha. Oh, such lovely memories!
Thanks for letting me ramble.

How else were we to get the news in those days. Oh for our memories....
