(Orig. launched 2/27/21) Season Two of Old-Time Radio Essentials continues! This installment is our second for 2021, and instead of rotating to Paul, we have brought in as our special guests, the co-hosts of THE MYSTERIOUS OLD RADIO LISTENING SOCIETY: Joshua, Tim, and Eric! Their choice for this episode is an entry in the Columbia Workshop series, called "A Radio Primer", written by Norman Corwin. (Dave couldn't make it for this episode but he'll be back next time!) Join us for a five-way discussion that is hilarious at times, but always informative!

And since we're on the subject of discussion, we hope to determine whether this entry meets the following criteria:

1. Is it truly representative of that series? (Can anyone point to it and say, "Yes, that is what [NAME OF SERIES] was all about.")

2. Is it an episode worthy of inclusion in any and every OTR aficionado's private collection?

So with this in mind, we three bring you, as our twenty-first number (but 8th official episode of S2), this episode of The Columbia Workshop from 1941. We'll introduce the show, play it in its entirety, then discuss it at length. Thanks for joining us, and we hope you enjoy it!
