Our Miss Brooks was a hit on radio from the outset; within eight months of its launch as a regular series, the show landed several honors, including four for Eve Arden, who won polls in four individual publications of the time. Arden had actually been the third choice to play the title role. Harry Ackerman, at the time CBS´s West Coast director of programming, wanted Shirley Booth for the part, but as he told historian Gerald Nachman many years later, he realized Booth was too focused on the underpaid downside of public school teaching at the time to have fun with the role. Lucille Ball was believed to be the next choice, but she was already committed to My Favorite Husband and didn´t audition. Produced by Larry Berns and written by director Al Lewis, Our Miss Brooks premiered on CBS on July 19, 1948. According to radio critic John Crosby, her lines were very ´´feline´´ in dialogue scenes with principal Conklin and would-be boyfriend Boynton, with sharp, witty comebacks. The interplay between the cast - blustery Conklin, nebbishy Denton, accommodating Harriet, absentminded Mrs. Davis, clueless Boynton, scheming Miss Enright - also received positive reviews. Arden won a radio listeners´ poll by Radio Mirror magazine as the top ranking comedienne of 1948-1949, receiving her award at the end of an Our Miss Brooks broadcast that March. ´´I´m certainly going to try in the coming months to merit the honor you´ve bestowed upon me, because I understand that if I win this [award] two years in a row, I get to keep Mr. Boynton,´´ she joked. But she was also a hit with the critics; a winter 1949 poll of newspaper and magazine radio editors taken by Motion Picture Daily named her the year´s best radio comedienne. For its entire radio life, the show was sponsored by Colgate-Palmolive-Peet, promoting Palmolive soap, Lustre Creme shampoo, and Toni hair care products. The radio series continued until 1957, a year 1. Language: English. Narrator: Eve Arden, Gale Gordon. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/bnpp/000470/bk_bnpp_000470_sample.mp3.

For as long as there´s been a World Wide Web, there´s been a giant unresolved issue with what’s on it: those millions of songs, videos, TV and movie clips we enjoy for free — somebody owns each one. Now Congress is trying to tame the internet´s wild west. Next, David Cronenberg is best known for films like The Fly, The Dead Zone, Dead Ringers and A History of Violence. They can be shocking, violent, and gory — but they’re also unmistakably personal films that make you think while you’re squirming in your seat. Cronenberg’s new film is a straightforward historical drama.Then, five years ago, Studio 360 redesigned Christmas. We commissioned the design firm Pentagram to come up with a fresh, 21st century concept for the holiday that could be used — and loved — universally. Since then we´ve done several other redesigns, including of the rainbow Gay Flag, Valentine´s Day, and the Monopoly boardgame.After that, why does a country music megastar and all-American guy like Ronnie Dunn — half of what was Nashville’s biggest act, Brooks and Dunn — have a house full of paintings from the Soviet Union? It’s a long story….And finally, Larry Rosenblum is a professor of psychology with a focus on perception — he’s written a book about the senses called See What I’m Saying. Rosenblum credits a musical revelation with leading him down that path. Growing up with 1970s prog-rock, he thought that virtuosity and spectacular showmanship were the hallmarks.
