LADY OF THE PRESS: RADIO'S LOST ROMANTIC-MYSTERY SERIAL (paperback)
Unheard and unseen for over seventy years, Lady of the Press is an intriguing, entertaining West Coast CBS radio show from 1944 and 1945. The story follows newspaper reporter Sandra Martin, a modern woman trying to balance her personal life with her working world, as she is falsely tagged by police as a Person of Interest in a grisly murder.
Sandra Martin is played by Janet Waldo, went on to fame as the voice of Corliss Archer, Judy Jetson, Penelope Pitstop, and many other characters.
The big-city newspaper setting gave the 15-minute daily serial more energy than typical radio soaps. This volume reprints for the first time the scripts from two dozen original episodes from the series complete with edits and cuts made by the cast and crew. These Lady of the Press scripts open a window into the World War II home front and the lives people led.
