Suspense (2300 UTC, Saturday, June 25)
Suspense was a radio series broadcast on CBS from 1942 through 1962. One of the great radio shows of the Golden Age of Radio, Suspense, was subtitled “radio’s outstanding theater of thrills.” The show usually featured leading Hollywood actors of the era.
The digitally restored shows are from August and June 1942.
Roger Miller (Sunday, June 26 @ 0000 UTC)
Along with Ray Stevens and a couple more performers, Roger Miller began his pop career singing “silly songs.” “You Can’t Rollerskate in a Buffalo Herd,” “Chugalug,” and “My Uncle Used to Love Me But She Died,” are three examples of the songs that made Roger famous. However, he had many serious songs that rivaled anything during his career.
