Weekend OTR: Night Editor — Homecoming for Two

By: 9 July 2011 2 Comments

Yes, it’s the weekend once again and we all know what that means — another fine old time radio program for your listening pleasure!

What’s on tap this weekend? An episode of Night Editor which was a bit of human interest melodrama that touched on enough themes to choke a horse (noir detective stuff, war stories, etc.) The program ran for 14 years and it’s popularity should come as no surprise — it’s well written, well acted and hits on topics that are still incredibly entertaining. If you’ve never heard an episode of Night Editor, well you’re in for a treat. Get ready for some fun.

As always, this episode is courtesy of our good friends at OTRCat.com. If you’re in the market for some old time radio programs, remember to visit The Cat. Oh, and make sure to stop by First Arkansas News every Sunday for the latest installment in our original series of Lum and Abner comic strips. Any OTR fan ought to get a kick out of those things, so don’t miss it.

Oh, and don’t forget to listen to our own modern audio theater production — the Super Weasel Lawyer Team. Yeah!

Click the below player and enjoy the show.

    I think another OTR show that follows the same line as ‘inside a newspaper’ is the excellent Frank Lovejoy drama series ‘Night Beat’.

    ‘Night Beat’ is the story of reporter Randy Stone who covers the night beat for the Chicago Star. The show revolves around human interest and at times they are very touching.

    The program starts with the Randy Stone character introducing the premise of the episode and ends with Randy calling for the ‘copy boy’. Yes, the show’s opening and closings are somewhat ‘dated'; but in between the story itself is very entertaining and well written, acted and produced. It is nice to hear the top radio talent at the time giving some of their best performances because many of the stars in later years thought the show was above many of the ‘newspaper setting’ shows.
