Radio Broadcast Log Of:
The First Nighter
 
     The listener is taken to “the little theater off Times Square” to be part of the “opening night performance” of drama and comedy.  All the illusions of Broadway were heard during the opening of each broadcast.  Taxi horns, the sounds of crowded sidewalks, police whistles, etc.  Into the theater the listener overheard all the sounds of the curtain going up, and after a quick reading of the program, the production for the evening.  Very popular program for 23 years.
