Old-Time Radio Essentials is back with episode 39, the 2nd installment of Season 4! Pete, Paul and Patte present an episode of the syndicated series Diary of Fate. This time it’s newcomer Patte’s pick, suggested by Essential Listener Ted, called “The Trina Crowley Entry”!  Will Pete enjoy it? Will Patte shed tears of regret at the thought of continuing as our co-host? Will Paul ever stop mentioning Harry “Red” Bever? 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-ninth number (but 2nd official episode of S4), this episode of Diary of Fate, from 3/9/48. 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!

Next Time: It’s Paul’s pick again, and he’ll bring an episode of Bold Venture!
