In November of 1966, coffee maker Chase and Sanborn whose classic radio series had for a time headlined Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy in the 1930s and 1940s, returned the venerable ventriloquist act to the air for this one-off radio special celebrating NBC and, for all intents and purposes, radio itself. Although dramatic network radio is considered to have officially died only in 1962 with the final episodes of SUSPENSE and YOURS TRULY, JOHNNY DOLLAR, this special a mere 4 years later is sometimes credited with igniting the OTR nostalgia boom that followed for the next decade or so.

Meyer would go on, of course, to even bigger and better things (pun intended).
