The Sabbatical (Aired April 25, 1979)
The Sears Radio Theater Series premiered on Monday 02/05/79 and offered a different genre each weekday night. Each genre was hosted by a different celebrity. The program was produced on Paramount's Stage F in Hollywood. These first 130 programs were broadcast over a six month period and then rebroadcast over the following six months. From 02/14/80 to 12/19/81 this series was heard again, this time over Mutual, as The Mutual Radio Theater. This was clearly one of the last big attempts to produce radio programming, with many of radio’s best talents, the way radio was heard in its “golden days.” Despite budget and talent, it just wasn’t to be. THIS EPISODE: April 25, 1979. Program #58. CBS network. "The Sabbatical". Sponsored by: Sears Roebuck and Company. Percy Grainger (writer), Vincent Price (host), Jeff Corey, Lesley Woods, Shepard Menken, Paula Winslowe, Marvin Miller, Elliott Lewis (producer, director). 38:16. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
