Another break from the glamour and swing, in a type of program you’ve not seen here yet.
Starring Robert Waldrop
with Mark Warnow’s Orchestra
Introduced as “stories from ‘the American notebook’, these are quiet programs, telling pleasant short stories. These remind me of the way Nelson Olmstead was in his short story programs.
And speaking of Olmstead, does anyone else think one of the performers in this story sounds like him?
Treasury Salute 368
The Road to Romance
The story of some soldiers’ afternoon in Alabama, where a little road led them to something interesting, and not exactly as Goldin records in their index, so give a listen to find out for yourself.

The Key of C
This story is about a boy and his piano lessons.
Oh, and his onions, too.

Another great show! I can’t wait to hear it. Keep up the great work.
Thanks for your comment, Steve. Always swell to hear from you.
Am downloading the episosde as I type..Interesting you should mention Nelson Olmsted with Robert Waldrop. Waldrop was narrator of a longtime radio series called The Ohio Story (sponsored by Ohio Bell Telephone Co.) beginning in 1947-In 1952 a 10-minute TV version was started and Waldrop was replaced as narrator by-Nelson Olmsted! (On both TV and radio) Waldrop stayed on as Ohio Bell Commercial spokesman on the show..Looking forward to hearing this..
