Presenting the Transcription Feature: MY FAVORITE HUSBAND and SUSPENSE


This August 6th marks the 104th birthday of actress, comedian, and entertainment mogul Lucille Ball. Before there was the television classic I Love Lucy, there was its radio incarnation, My Favorite Husband. Though her radio husband Richard Denning works in a bank, not as band leader, you can’t help but see the roots of Lucy in Ball’s character Liz and all the zany situations she stumbles into. But Ball was more than just a comic actress. Like so many performers during the Golden Age of radio, she worked in drama as well. This week she and real-life husband Desi Arnaz appear in Suspense, "radio's outstanding theater of thrills," which ran for twenty years. Here they play strangers engaged in a potentially deadly game of cat-and-mouse. But who is the criminal and who is the victim?
