Two more treats for the ears

by Andrea Elizabeth

“For Always” is another Old Time Radio Drama podcast on iTunes probably made in the early ’50’s judging by its domestic setting. Besides drawing me into the relationship of the couple, it also deals surprisingly equinanimously with the battle of the sexes. The rocky relationship reveals the warts on both parties. I may make a “comment” about the ending.

“Ask of Thyself” is set in the south maybe in the late ’40’s with its references to the war and it’s less equinanimous treatment of people in general, though it tries really hard. The best part is the poetic, if we forgive the overly familiar, language of the distractingly ugly wandering gardener.
