Re: Request for Information

Michael,

Thank you for posting, but I am asking for information about characters who were senators in old-time radio series.  You will see your name in print along with those of several other members who helped me with the article on "The 1965 Revival of Old-Time Radio" when and if it gets published.

Larry,

 

I gather what you are asking is for information regarding senators who actually appeared as themselves on Radio?

 

 

Best Regards,

Thank you Ryan and Pygar.  The information about Senator Murphy is very interesting, but does not refute the assumption that Mary Marlin (and I should have added her husband Joe who preceded her in the U.S. Senate) were the only senators in old-time radio.  

 

This may be a small point, but it does set The Story of Mary Marlin apart from all other OTR soap operas, along with the fact that it is one of only two of them which are principally located in Washington, D.C. 

 

I welcome corrections if anyone can come up with a U.S. senator who played even a minor role in any other OTR series.

 

Larry
