Radio quiz shows were all the rage during the 1940s and 1950s, from the comedy of You Bet Your Life to the erudition of Information Please. Tonight we present an episode of College Quiz Bowl, where the best and brightest of two colleges square off. Here it’s Brown and its affiliated women’s college, Pembroke, vs the University of Minnesota. For a transcribed program, this show is brimming with spontaneity. Then, on an early episode of The Great Gildersleeve, our hero is dragooned into investigating the City Jail . . . from the point of view of a prisoner. Listen here.
