Of course the show at the beginning of the demo was Escape, a CBS show heard from 1947 to 1954. My brother Larry and I have played and interviewed personalities from the golden age of radio since 1980 or so. this is an excellent app and I have a couple of additional old time radio apps that I will do podcasts on when I have a chance.

John, you're correct, of course. I decided to throw that intro in to mix things up a bit. Escape was one of my favorites, though I think the 5 part series of Yours Truely Johny Dollar had the best plots. Also, Mr. Baily was a great voice actor. He and Wiliam Comrade were probably among my favorites.
