Duffy´s Tavern, an American radio situation comedy which ran for ten years, often featured top-name stage and film guest stars but always hooked those around the misadventures, get-rich-quick-scheming, and romantic missteps of the title establishment´s malaprop-prone, metaphor-mixing manager, Archie, played by the writer/actor who co-created the show, Ed Gardner. In the show´s familiar opening, "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling;" either solo on an old-sounding piano or by a larger orchestra, was interrupted by the ring of a telephone and Gardner´s New Yorkese accent as he answered, "Duffy´s Tavern, where the elite meet to eat. Archie the manager speakin´. Duffy ain´t here "oh; hello, Duffy." Duffy, the owner, was never heard (or seen, when a film based on the show was made in 1945 or when a bid to bring the show to television was tried in 1954). But Archie always was bantering with Duffy´s man-crazy daughter, Miss Duffy (played by several actresses, beginning with Gardner´s real-life first wife, Shirley Booth); with Eddie, the waiter/janitor (Eddie Green); and, especially, with Clifton Finnegan (Charlie Cantor), a likeable soul with several screws loose and a knack for falling for every other salesman´s scam. 16 Half-Hour Episodes: The Pilot Episode Auditioning Cast Members Guest Star: Clifton Fadiman Guest Star: Dinah Shore Archie´s Taxes Guest Star: Dennis Day Guest Star: Charles Coburn Audit Trouble Archie Takes Up Reading Guest Star: Joan Bennett Guest Stars: Minerva Pious & John Anthony Miss Duffy´s Coming Out Party Archie Has Three Days to Live Schoolmate Visits Archie Wants to Patent Electricity Guest Star: Shelly Winters Digitally remastered from the original on-air recordings. 1.

George Herman "Babe" Ruth, Jr. (February 6, 1895-August 16, 1948), was an American baseball outfielder and pitcher who played 22 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) from 1914 to 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat"; he began his career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting (and some pitching) records, including career home runs (714), slugging percentage (.690), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164), some of which have been broken. He was one of the first five inductees into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1936. Red Sox owner Harry Frazee controversially sold Ruth to the Yankees. In his 15 years with New York, Ruth helped the Yankees win seven league championships and four World Series championships. His big swing led to escalating home run totals that not only drew fans to the ballpark and boosted the sport´s popularity but also helped usher the live-ball era of baseball, in which it evolved from a low-scoring game of strategy to a sport where the home run was a major factor. As part of the Yankees´ vaunted "Murderer´s Row" lineup of 1927, Ruth hit 60 home runs, extending his MLB single-season record. He retired in 1935 after a short stint with the Boston Braves. During his career, Ruth led the league in home runs during a season 12 times. These seven radio broadcasts are from the series hosted by sports reporter Steve Martin, who became friend and confidant to Babe Ruth, and was granted exclusive permission by Ruth to tell the in-depth stories of his life and career. 1.

Dragnet was perhaps the most famous and influential police procedural drama in media history. The series gave millions of audience members a feel for the boredom and drudgery, as well as the danger and heroism, of real-life police work. Actor and producer Jack Webb´s aims in Dragnet were for realism and unpretentious acting. He achieved both goals, and Dragnet remains a key influence on subsequent police dramas in many media. The show´s cultural impact is such that even after five decades, elements of Dragnet are known to those who have never seen or heard the program - including the famous four-note introduction to the theme music and the opening narration, ´´Ladies and gentlemen: the story you are about to hear is true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.´´ The original Dragnet starring Jack Webb as Sgt. Friday ran from from June 3, 1949, to February 26, 1957 on NBC radio. Webb insisted on realism in every aspect of the show. The dialogue was clipped, understated and sparse, influenced by the hardboiled school of crime fiction. Scripts were fast moving but didn’t seem rushed. Every aspect of police work was chronicled, step by step: From patrols and paperwork, to crime scene investigation, lab work and questioning witnesses or suspects. The detectives’ personal lives were mentioned but rarely took center stage. ´´Underplaying is still acting´´, Webb told Time. ´´We try to make it as real as a guy pouring a cup of coffee.´´ 1.
