Theater Five - Justice Is An Uncertain Thing (10-08-64)
Justice Is An Uncertain Thing (Aired October 8, 1964)
The variety of dramatic presentations was one of Theater Five's most compelling features. With a broad mix of genres and some of Radio, Stage, Television and Film's finest guest stars, ABC's humble 21-minute scripts packed a lot of entertainment into a relatively small format. Timing is everything. ABC Radio missed the sweet spot of Radio Drama History by about 20 years. Nevertheless, this series competes well with the Golden Age Radio revival attempts that post-dated it, and, for a 30-minute drama, it certainly hits its target. Now that the Golden Age of Radio has come and gone, there's all the more reason to give this wonderful dramatic anthology another listen. Moreso, given its compact, but thoroughly developed 30-minute format. And let's not forget the chance to listen to wonderful Fred Foy's remarkable voice hosting the series. That's reason enough to give this series another listen. Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group.
