    Thank you, Chuck, for putting this website together! It’s such a joy to hear these conversations that I missed the first times that you played them. I look forward to listening to more of them!

    Just before my dad died in 1972 we went to see Eve Arden in “Under Papa’s Picture” at the Little Theater in Sullivan, Illinois. Your website is bringing back many memories and is really enjoyable.

    A treat and a half. She was always my favourite comedic actress of the golden years of old Hollywood. Always dressed over the top, especially the hats. I think she was a milliners daughter after all. As they say – they dont make them like that any more!!!
