Genre: Radio Series
Release Dates: 27 November 1930 - 27 September 1953

Radio dramatic anthology, spotlighting light romantic fare (usually comedic), with a theatrical milieu. The host was "Mr. First Nighter," who each week would go to a little theater off of Times Square for the opening of a new play.

The romantic leads were consistent from week to week, played by the same actors, though there were shifts in the pairings over the show's run. First aired from Chicago and later from Hollywood, many future notable cartoon voices worked on the series.
