Welcome! This is my personal blog, where I chat about whatever takes my fancy, reminisce about comics, Old Time Radio, and science-fiction fandoms, review what I feel like reviewing, and so on. It also archives scans of some of the fanzines with which I've been involved.

Serendipitous FOTR Dinner

"The Widow" cast prepares for the "broadcast"

You just don't know when you're at a convention what's going to happen when. And tonight's Friends of Old Time Radio convention dinner - followed by "Old Time Radio" performances - provided special enjoyment. Sitting at our table was actress Corinne Orr, who not only appeared on such shows as Theater Five and CBS Radio Mystery Theater, but also was a voice artist on Speed Racer and voiced Snuggle the Bear. She was incredibly delightful to chat with - and she was so fantastically nice that she put up with my floundering about by my inability to locate a pen so she could give me an autograph. (I know, I know - my manners should have improved by now, but I have come to terms with the knowledge that I will occasionally disrupt the lives of people I admire. Sigh.) In any case, the wonderful evening was capped by a reperformance of a Theater Five story, "The Widow," with Orr and Elaine Hyman recreating their roles from that long-ago show.

Hello from Nancy Foy, Fred Foy's daughter! I'm in LA, but enjoying following the FOTR website, and now yours!

LA means Los Angeles, for clarification.

A special shout-out to the lovely Elaine Hyman, too!

Working with Elaine and Corinne is always a joy!

But for the record, Elaine wasn't in the original production - and Your Obedient Producer bumped up Corinne from her original role of "Telephone Operator."

Best,
Craig (aka, "The One They Tried To Pin The Murder On")
