I presume this

17. Archibald MacLeish's "Fall of the City," Orson Welles, narrator, Burgess 
Meredith, Paul Stewart (April 11,1937)
represents the radio broadcast, since the 78 set doesn't have any of these 
people (and in fact credits nobody, although Frank Gallop is clearly 
recognizable). And it's from the Columbia Workshop..Mercury Theatre on the 
Air didn't begin until much later, July 11/38.

And some of their other dates are curious. Tubby the Tuba was recorded in 
1945, by all accounts, unless they've given place of honor to the execrable 
Danny Kaye version. And Toscanini recorded the Barber Adagio much later than 
1938 (1941? don't have the date handy).

When did Kenton back up King Cole? Not till "Orange Colored Sky" in 
1950..definitely not on Straighten Up and Fly Right.

Allen's Alley serves

  Is there any reason why the "Academy" didn't see fit to elect the whole
  complete 30 minute Fred Allen broadcast, and opted instead for just the
  Allen's Alley segment?  What's that all about?  Now they're electing
  portions of broadcasts?  This is ridiculous.

  Also, why is there no mention of Stan Kenton backing up Nat King Cole on
  #23?

  The Robin Hood broadcast, listed as #18, is probably an episode of the
  Lux Radio Theater series.

  And the #17 listing of an Orson Welles broadcast is most likely an
  episode of Mercury Theater, isn't it?

  Is this what happens when Congress cuts budgets?  Are we to expect more
  of this sloppiness in years to come?
