Created by John Nesbitt, true documented stories are featured in The Passing Parade which ran as a summer replacement show for Fibber McGee and Molly. The show featured 2-3 factual but fantastic stories with John Nesbitt himself serving as host, writer, and storyteller.
John Nesbitt got the idea for The Passing Parade while look through old newspaper clippings of strange events kept in trunk in his father's attic. The stories were so extraordinary; he thought they would make an interesting radio show. The stories were seriously documented and researched, and were by all account true. The show was initially called Headlines of the Past and ran off and on between the years 1937-1951.
This collection is also part of the John Nesbitt Collection.
