Presenting the Transcription Feature: The Live of Harry Lime & The Bob Hope Show

It’s been a long time since we checked in with that loveable con man Harry Lime, in the person of Orson Welles.  Not quite the psychopathic murderer he was in the movie “The Third Man,” where he originated the role, radio’s Harry was more of a ne'er-do-well criminal.  In this episode, of “The Lives of Harry Lime,” Harry is on the Orient Express, hoping to work a counterfeit scam when someone tries to scam him.  Then, on “The Bob Hope Show,” Bob is broadcasting from the campus of USC just before a game against UCLA.  Now that the war is over, he’s leaving behind the military-themed jokes, and this episode is just packed with delightful college cliches and slang.
