Not one, but two exciting shows in this collection start with the phrase, "You think you're smart? Meet Your Match, the 1949 quiz show wants to know just how smart you are. Contestants pick their opponents by their occupation. You have a choice of a shoe repairman, underwear salesman, cake decorator, and retail grocer. Tune in and see if the flutist is brighter than the cobbler! Another show, Bunco Squad, continues, "Nobody's fool? Brother you can be taken! This detective and adventure show takes bunco stories from the police record and dramatizes them for your pleasure.

If you can't hold it any longer, bust loose with such comedies as Meet Me at Parky's. Listen in and laugh on with Parky, the head cook and bottle washer at a Greek beanery.
