New Podcast at Mysteryshows.com - Suspense - The Face Is Familiar 

One of the rare comical episodes of Suspense. Arthur Ross (writer) Elliott Lewis (director) and guest star Jack Benny combine to give us a whimsical thriller about a talkative small-town nobody who runs into an old acquaintance... who happens to be a bank robber. Jack is soon playing the leading role in a hold-up without knowing it. The robbers' theory is that he's such a boring and unmemorable type that none of the witnesses will even be able to describe him! Show review contributed by Mike from our OTR forum. Thanks Mike!

"Cavalcade Of America" series added to "club members area". 293 Shows: Cavalcade of America was a weekly show, sponsored by the DuPont Company, on radio from 1935 to 1953.

The company's motto, "Maker of better things for better living through chemistry," was read at the beginning of each program, and the dramas emphasized humanitarian progress, particularly improvements in the lives of women, often through technological innovation.
