Escape

Escape

67 Years Ago today in Radio History: Escape aired for the final time on the radio. CBS cancels "Escape" thriller anthology program: Today Escape is considered the best of all of Radio's romantic adventure anthologies, but during its seven-year run, it was an early victim of the rise of Television sponsorship. CBS moved it through eighteen time slots, often relegating t to summer replacement status. CBS already had a hit in the Thriller-anthology drama category with "Suspense", which had kept listeners entranced since 1940, so there was no real need for "Escape" when Bill Robson and Norm MacDonnell brought the new show to network execs in 1947. However, no one could deny that "Escape" was a great show, perhaps as good or better than "Suspense". The biggest difference between the two was that the older program used original stories while Escape turned to literature for material. This meant that Escape was cheaper and easier to write, but the Network seemed to want the program to die, moving it between a series of bad time-slots with little support. "Escape" finally went off the air for good in 1954.

Tom Mix

Tom Mix

88 Years Ago today in Radio History: Tom Mix debuted on the radio today in 1933. Tom Mix was a real cowboy who was born in Pennsylvania in 1880. He joined the Army during the Spanish-American War in 1898 but was never deployed overseas. Mix still rode with a Rough Riders detachment during Teddy Roosevelt's Inaugural Parade. He settled in Oklahoma and worked at the Miller Bros 101 Ranch. Around 1909, Mix moved to Los Angeles where Selig Polyscope made him one of Hollywood's first Cowboy Stars. Tom Mix was the original Movie Cowboy, appearing in almost 300 silent films (and 9 talkies). He helped establish the Western genre and the trope of the Good Guy in the White Hat saving the day and riding off into the sunset. Mix was a pallbearer at Wyatt Earp's funeral and helped John Wayne get started in the film industry. The Ralston-Purina Milling Company Wanted to break into the breakfast cereal market and licensed tom Mix's name for Tom Mix Ralston Straight Shooters kid's show which debuted on September 25, 1933, airing through the early Fifties. The old cowboy did not appear on the program, his rough Western life left his voice unsuitable for the Radio. Tom Mix never personally appeared on the program and passed away after an automobile accident on October 12, 1940.
