Old-Time Radio Essentials is back with episode 37, the Season 3 finale! Pete, Paul and Dave present an installment of the long-running series “Counterspy”. The usual free-wheeling discussion follows, with Paul, Dave and Pete weighing the merits of this particular episode. Will they love it, or hate it, or try to waterboard it? Tune in and find out!

And since we’re on the subject of finding things out, while you listen you’ll learn if we feel this entry meets the following criteria:

1. Is it truly representative of that series? (Can anyone point to it and say, “Yes, that is what [NAME OF SERIES] was all about.”)

2. Is it an episode worthy of inclusion in any and every OTR aficionado’s private collection?

So with this in mind, we three bring you, as our thirty-seventh number (but 12th — and penultimate — official episode of S3), this episode of Counterspy, from 1945. We’ll introduce the show, play it in its entirety, then discuss it at length. Thanks for joining us, and we hope you enjoy it!
