96318. Douglas Of The World. 1953. AFRS. "The Judgement Day". The last show of the series. A one-legged Korean war veteran is threatening to jump off the top of the United Nations building. The story turns into a hymn of praise for the United Nations The climax of the story features a five-minute oration by Jack Moyles, appearing as Bradford Douglas. This must have been one of the high points of Moyles' radio career. Fantastic! Jack Moyles, Bill Woodson (announcer), Earl Lawrence (composer), Mishel Perrier (conductor), John Blahos (writer), Steven R. Callahan (producer, director). 29:32. Audio condition: Very good to excellent. Complete.

96317. Douglas Of The World. 1953. AFRS. "The Murder Rap". Douglas is in Moscow to report on the funeral of Joseph Stalin. Since Stalin died March 5, 1953, this program would be dated after then. Douglas quickly locates a beautiful Russian, the "underground," and a frame-up for murder. Perhaps the feeling of the times colored the outlook of the writer (John Blahos), but Douglas seems contemptuous of all things Russian and ugly-American rude to his hosts in Moscow. Jack Moyles, Mishel Perrier (music director), Bill Woodson (announcer), Earl Lawrence (composer), John Blahos (writer), Robert M. Young (producer, director). 29:36. Audio condition: Excellent. Complete.
