Presenting the Transcription Feature: THE LUX RADIO THEATER - "It Happens Every Spring"
< 1 day ago
With the World Series almost upon us, we thought we’d give you a tale of baseball that culminates at the World Series. “The Lux Radio Theater” brought listeners abridged versions of popular films of the day. This time it’s “It Happens Every Spring,” with Ray Miland reprising the role he created in the 1949 film of the same name.
