"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."
