B. J. Palmer 11:15 Charles Cant's Band 11:30 Revival Hour 12:30 Sim Off A musical treat is in store for "Radio Theater" listeners Monday evening at 8 on KGLO-CBS. "My Gal Sal," the story of Paul Dresser the song-writer, will co-star Mary Martin and Dick Powell, undcni-* bly two of Hollywood's better ingers. The movies recently filmed 'My Gal Sal," after Theodore Jreiser had written the story of us tuneful brother. Dresser (he :hose to spell his name a little differently) wrote such favorites as "On the Banks of. the Wabash and the titular song, "My Gal Sal." Rita Hayworth and Victor Maure were the lilm stars of the 20th Century-Fox show. Miss Martin and "Dwell were chosen by Producer C. B. De MHle of the "Radio Theater" for their singing and acting ability. Monday evening's program' wilt be replete with music, it's plain to see. DeMille's choices for the "Radio Theater" run the gamut from heavy drama to comedy to musical shows. The last department has been reached this week, and the promise held out by the show is 100 per cent enjoyment. The Lux program is probably the all-time champion poll winner of radio. It has just been selectee again as the best dramatic broadcast in the Motion Picture Daily and Radio Daily balloting. Practically every class of radio entertainment shows a change in champions every year, but the "Radio Theater" rolls on from season to season, collecting honors. Melton Back for Visit 13, With 'Kosty' James Melton, long the people's loice as leading tenor and now "discovery" of the Metropolitan pera, will make his 13th guest spcarance on "The Pause That efreshes on the Air" Sunday at :30 on KGLO and CBS. We hope that number 13 doesn't affect Melton in any manner. The curly.haired singer has been procured by Conductor Andre Koitelanetz to pair with Vicente Gomez, the guitarist extraordinary, as guests. Melton made his first appear- nce on the Sunday afternoon show wo years ago. He tops all other uests in number of visits. The tenor's selections for Sun- ay are: "It Ain't Necessarily So," rom "Porgy and Bess" by George Jershwin; and "Ah, Moon of. My delight" by Lehmann. * * * Gomez will play a guitar solo, the title of which has not been announced. The Spaniard is noted for his lightning-fast fingering of the strings, as well as remarkable Latin sense of cadence. The orchestra under Kostclan- tz' baton will also go in for outh of the border rhythm with Brazil." Another number is "Man- lattan Serenade" by Louis Alter. Master of musical ceremonies n "The Pause That Refreshes" Ted Cott. % :fc A :fc :fe Author Finds Kid's Prank Is Familiar One Jumping out of the bathtub and running away from Mom seems be the favorite sport of American three year olds. At least, that's what Bess Flynn, author of KGLO-CBS' "Bachelor's Children" (Monday thru Friday, 9:45 a. m.) That episode in the script of the favorite morning serial brought more fan mail than any other in seven years on the air. Listeners all said their kids had done the same. Mrs. Flynn said her daughter pulled just such a prank as a haby. The local minister found the little lady scampering unclad through the neighborhood. He was too embarrassed to bring her home, said Mrs. Flynn. with a grin. Daughter is now a well-behaved young woman of 19, and still a. big help to her mother, even it she doesn't provided a m u s i n g script material. She is taking a secretarial course and acts as Mrs. Flynn's amanuensis. The Flynn family lives in a comfortable Connecticut home. Mrs. Flynn is one of radio's outstanding authors. Her experience dates back to the beginnings of the broadcasting industry. Daly's Notes Fill Breach in Newscast "Cairo is out You have five ex- ra minutes to fill." To John Daly, KGLO-CBS newscaster on "The World Today,' hese words are the signal for five minutes of ad-libbing the news They mean that atmospheric conditions have drowned out short- wave signals from Egypt, and the extra time must be taken up with news material from CBS in Nev. York. Daly usually receives such in structions while he is on the ai and far from typewriter or pencil From Hollywood -- it's Orson Welles! No further invitation is needed for those seeking good entertainment, Welles' current KGLO- CBS show is "Hello, Americans," heard Sunday evening at 7. The masterful young author- producer-actor has once again hit the bull's-eye with this colorful series. "Hello, Americans" is a salute to our South and Central American neighbors. Music an'd customs of the several republics are included in Welles' shows. It's no ordinary travelog, however. The inimitable touch of Orson is there, rendering new the old, striking the radio ear with sudden quirks. Welles bases "Hello, Americans" on actual experience. He has traveled South and Central America with his eyes and ears open. Soldiers' Guest Dorothy Lamonr, the saronp queen, is scheduled to appear Saturday night at 9:15 on the "Soldiers With Wings" show on KGLO-CBS. She will sing and otherwise perform for the air force lads at the Santa Ana, Cal., base. This regular broadcast is featured by the music of Maj. Eddie Dunstedter's band and appearance of Hollywood JUrs. JOHN DALY It is his job, with his knowledg of news and ability to talk clear ly from brief notes, to fill in tha gap- From news on the teletype ma chines, Daly prepares his note for the 5:45 Monday through Sa urday roundup period. If an over seas point fails to come in, he ready when the notice is passe to him. Daly begins to tal smoothly and flawlessly. Short-wave interference is a too common. In one week, lor in slance, three overseas points wer washed out on Sunday and agai on Monday. Substitutions wcr necessary lor two points on Wee ncsday, and Thursday many si nals were poor. "That was a bad week," sa Daly. But any week, any tim he must be ready to talk fro: notes. Daly's background has prepare him for such spots. While he wa with CBS in Washington, he wa presidential announcer. On th job he had to fill minutes spen waiting unlil the president wa ready to speak on the air. James Melton, whose Sunday afternoon appearance on "The Pause That Refreshes on tbe Air" (see above) marks his 13th such visit, is noted for other things besides singing. He had the world's finest collection of old and historic autos until he turned part of them in as scrap. Bemie's Daily Show Turns Spot Upon War Plants and Workers The Old Maestro has gone all- out for the. war plants. Yes, Ben Bernie's regular afternoon show on KGLO and Columbia has been turned over to war-time employment activities. Besides the top tunes sung by Jack Fulton, Elisse Cooper and the King's Jesters, and played by Caesar Petrillo's orchestra, B e r n i e ' s p r o g r a m fo- cusses attention on the U. S. Employment service's function in filling war factory jobs. Bernie and his sponsor have hit the ball square- Jy, it w o u l d seem. No worthier p r o j e c t could be under- BERNIE taken, and the program is the better for it. Paste 'im, Fred! JESSEL ALLEN'S GUEST George Jessel is Fred Allen's "Texaco Star Theater" guest on Sunday at 8:30 p. m. on KGLO- CBS. .Radio fans will recall that Jessel appeared with Allen a short time ago in an effort to stifle Jack Haley. In fact, having heard Jessel's songs on that occasion, audiences were pretty thoroughly convinced that Jessel also was trying to stifle Fred Allen. Now, with Jack Benny's violin- playing hardly cold in the front parlor, Jessel is back again. It has been indicated that he wants to interest Allen in a "let's do something for Jack Benny" plan. It may involve buying Benny a new violin. It may involve buying Benny's old violin to stifle it. It may involve buying Benny to stifle him. Air Ya Listenin? By R. W. L. With S u n d a y morning's opening program, KGLO will have attained its sixth birthday ! Yes, six years ago to the day--Sunday, Jan. 17, 1937 this radio station was born into the broadcasting world. This year marks the first time the anniversary has fallen on Sunday. * * .* KGLO will make no special observance of the date, what with the war going on and absorbing undivided attention. Instead, we are looking forward to the celebration of an eighth, ninth or tenth birthday--with victory! * * * But just for the record, may we point out a few advances of this sixth year just completed. H was during this annus KGLO steppec up to the 5,000-watt class in power. With new studios and equipment, the station completed the transformation from old to new with its graduation into the big- time circles. * * Of course, there are still a couple o£ rungs to this ladder, but give us time! Six years from 10( watts to 5,000 is far better than par for the course--if we may scramble the metaphors on this occasion. * * Air ya listening All right then here's a note on KGLO's former announcer, Ken Kew. The loca lad now has a "Pvt." prefixing his name, and he's on the staff a. Camp Dodge headquarters induction station. It's a different kind of station from KGLO, Ken write us, but he's gradually getting into the swing of army life, he adds * * * Private Kew is going to maki Uncle Sam a fine soldier, \vi know, and we expect Ken to bi in on the realization o£ his fina "sports" prediction: A smashin victory for the united nation team over, the axis yeggs in th/ "world bowl!" * * * Aside to Ken: We can't addres you directly on the air, you know But we can in this column So %ve'll write that fat letter prettj soon! * * * Notching a few network new bits: David Ross, of the golden pipes is starling his 15th year as a announcer-narrator. He reads th plugs for Phil Baker on KGLO CBS Sunday eve. . . . Agne Moorehead, winner of the '42 film critics' award, plays Mrs. Dither in KGLO-CBS' "Blondie." Larry Lcsueur, experienced network foreign r e p o r t e r , has launched his new pgm 4 'An American in Russia," Sa'turday pm on KGLO. . . . Dashiell Hammelt, peer of detective story writers, has: been promoted to corporal technician in Uncle Sam's khaki-clads. He scripts "The Adventures of the Thin Man" on KGLO-CBS * * * Happy birthday has been wished thousands on KGLO's "Mailbag" the past half-dozen years. It's happy birthday to KGLO itself Sunday afternoon. Air ya listem'n'? Mr. and Mrs. Will Do Play on Monday William Powell and Diana Lesvis, who happens to be Mrs. Powell, will grace the "Screen Guild Players" broadcast Monday night at 9 on KGLO and CBS. Their vehicle is "To Be or Not to Be." Jack Benny and the late Carole Lombard were stars of the celluloid version of this melodrama- comedy. T h e t i t l e -- y o u guessed it -- c o m e s f r o m "Hamlet." The story concerns a Polish a c t i ng troupe, just after the n a z i invasion. Powell p l a y s the hammy actor whose aspirations to do POWELL "Hamlet" seem always to be frustrated. Mrs. Powell plays his beauteous wife. (That shouldn't be difficult). There are plenty of funny spots in "To Be or Not to Be," but there are also ones with serious implications. Those who saw the movie will agree Mr. and Mrs. Powell make up a wise choice for the leads. Serial 5 Years Old * * " It's a pleasant five years since "Those We Love" made its debut on the Columbia network. The program observes the anniversary Sunday at 1 o'clock on KGLO, with Nan Grey (left) in the roie of Kathy Marshall, and Helen Wood, linking arms with Miss Grey, portraying the equally exacting part of Elaine Dascom. Became Actress ' By Chance --Now CBS Star The fondest dream of a young girl aspiring to a stage career was realized by Claudia Morgan, heroine of "The Adventures of the Thin Man" and "We Love and Learn," both KGLO-CBS features. The attractive brunette at first hoped to be a p a'i n t e r, although her father, R a l p h Morgan, and her uncle, F r a n k Morgan, w e r e both stage and screen favorites. But then--. Claudia w a s riding with her uncle one day. T h e y slowed for a traffic light. A stage producer leaped on the running ' board and com- MISS MORGAN plained to Morgan o£ his inability to find the right girl for his play. Then he saw Claudia. So another! acting career was launched. Miss Morgan may be heard on "The Adventures of the Thin Man" Friday night at 7:30. "We Love and Learn" airs Monday through Friday at 1:30. Fred Allen is about to let fly a potent punch at his new model "Schickelgraber bae." T h e KGLO-CBS comedian's design ought to start» nation-wide rash in the 1 manly art of boxing. We don't give the bag much of a chance. Allen is heard Sunday night at 8:3* in the "Texaco Star Theater." "CHILDREN AND WAR" Parents' questions about the war--its effect on their home and children--are answered by Mrs. Pauline Rush Fadiman on her weekly KGLO-CBS "Children and the War" scries Monday at 3:30 p. m. As a staff member of the Child Study association and editor of that organization's publication, Mrs. Fadiman is in a position to know the answers. A few radio programs, no otherwise mentioned on this page which you should nevertheless no miss: Saturday evening on KGLO CBS, "Your Hit Parade" headline the card from 8 to 8:45. Thi great show of long standing boast roster composed of Barry Wood Joan Edwards, the Hit Paradcrs Mark Warnow's orchestra, Ethc Smith at the electric organ, an Martin Block as cmcec.

The regular time: 7:30-8. On th six-Ill anniversary Mrs. .1. H. Marslon will conduct the lesson ! as she has every anniversary Sunday. The Rev. Carl .T. Sentmaii d Pay-As-You-Go Tax Expert Will Explain on People's Platform Americans have been hearing the phrase "pay-as-you-go" np- plied to taxes. Originator of the leading plan of this type is Beardsley Ruml, New York attorney. He will be heard on the "People's Platform" on KGLO Sunday at 1:30. Lyman Bryson, Columbia's director of education and conductor ' f the famed discussion program, has asked Ruml to explain hisi plan in detail. The "People's! Platform" is heard on the network! Saturdays, but KGLO, unable to! air it at the time, records it for Sunday. Under the Rum] plan Americans would pay their income taxes on money earned in 1943 by means of pay-check deductions. Ruml suggests skipping taxation on 1942 income. Radio Chanel Sunday morning a 9. * ·¥ "Womanpowcr" puts Ihe spotlight on the part women arc playing in the war. Heard on KGLO-CBS at 11:15 a. m.

With a press at midnight, that It's happy birthday to Those We Love," the favor- e KGLO-CBS Sunday serial clling the sorrows and joys f the Marshall family. Agnes {Jdgway's popular story celc- rates its fit'lh anniversary n the Columbia network Sun- ay at 1 o'clock. The 260th Sunday after he program's beginning in anuary, 1938, finds the Mar- halls still having their prob- ems and attending to them n the quiet New England vay. Now a romantic fortune unter has designs on Cousin lai'y's fortune, and Martha, the laid, is trying to save her friend rom unhappiness. Many of the original players of "Those We Love" are still in. the cast. N'an Grey, Donald Woods. Helen Wood, Alma Kruger, Virginia Sale, Mary Gordon and Victor Rodman are among those heard on the program who helped to launch it back in '38. Miss Ridgway, the author, is a eteran radio dramatist. As early s 1933, her work was used on eading dramatic programs of adio. By the way, you've probably icard it umpteen times before, lut the "Kathy" of "Those We ^ove," Miss Grey, is the wife of 'ackie Wcstrope, prominent jockey of the west coast racing ovals. 'Blondie y Is Hit Because It's Common The beauty of the "Blondie" serial of newspapers, radio and screen is that it's so darn human. Millions of young men throughout the U. S. A. are married to someone l i k e Blondie. Da g wood is the sort of fellow who lives down the street from you. H a v e y o u formed the habit of listening to "Blondie" on K G L O - C B S Monday at 9:30 p. m.'.' You'll discover it's one of the most likeable, unpreten- DAGWOOD tious shows on the nir. Blondie is boss of the household, chancellor of the exchequer, devoted wife, gay sweetheart, busy mother and silly little girl. Men radio listeners are crazy about Blondie. Womeii, recognizing themselves, also adore her. Dagwood just tries hard. He's the kind to drop in for an evening of bridge (though he doesn't play very well), belongs to your bowling league and averages around 132, doesn't listen while you're bragging about your baby because he's waiting Jor the chance to play up his own, and is really a good- hearted family man. Though they don't look it, Blondie and Dagwood are really the backbone of America. Their family has even been brought up to the average o£ two children. 7:55, 8, and news summary rounds out a mighty complete day. To Present KGLO Forum Talks SHIRER COMPLETES FLAT William L. Shircr, famed KGLO- CBS commentator, has finished his first play. U covers his experiences as a newsman in Europe in the ten years before the war. Shirer, who is heard Sundays at 4:45, hasn't named his brain-child as yet. Crime Drama May Include Real Warden When you've written more than 100 scripts for the same radio sc- ries, you might be tempted to reduce your job to a mere efficient routine. But not Max Marcin, author- crcnlor of the Sunday night KGLO-CBS p r o g r a m , "Crime Doctor." With 325 scripts in t h a t successful scries to his credit, he's still striving to make the show ever more colorful, more newsworthy. He's planning to add surc- nuft, real live prison wardens to the cast. When you hear in "Crime Doc- tor'' the case of a mnn or woman up before a parole board, a war- Sen talks. Up to no'.v, the warden has been an actor. But when a prison magazine re :nlly wrote about the "Crime Doctor" as a pcnologist of renown, Marcin began toying with the idea of adding a real working warden to the cast as a guest star each Sunday night. Between 10 and 15 million persons listen to "Crime Doctor" every Sunday--an indication that the talcs interest a great number of dialers. By the way, Warner Baxter has been selected to star as the "Doctor" in the movie version of the radio drama. A favorite star of yesteryear. Baxter is returninR as the lead in this and other Hollywood productions. The Rev. Paul A. Peterson, of Wesley Methodist church, will Kive the Sunday KGLO Forum address at 5:15. His topic is "Coincidence or Providence?" Mrs. If. G. Martin, president of the North Iowa Navy .Mothers club, will speak on (he KGLO Forum Saturday evening at 6:15 on "Our Coast Guard." HAWK CAN'T SAY NO Toughest job for Bob Hawk o£ "Thanks to the Yanks" (KGLO- CBS, Saturday, 6:30 p. m.) is to call a quiz contestant wrong. The brilliant quiz-master thinks nothing o£ his killing pace, putting the questions, quipping and reeling oft commercials, but he hates to be faced with that final decision. Recently, he counted a contestant right when the man said "Mr. Five-by-Five'' had 50 chins. The number Hawk wanted was 15, but tlie man said all he could tell from hearing the pop tune indicated 50. Bob awarded him the 2,000 cigarcls.
