It's wonderful to hear Bret's voice on CBSRMT. For most of us, he will always be the voice of Lamont Cranston, alias The Shadow. I particularly like his performance in A Scaffold for Two. It was around the time of his CBSRMT shows that Bret recorded two new episodes of the Shadow for an LP-collection: "The Computer Calculates, but the Shadow Knows," and "Air Freight Fracas." The early 1970s had a lot of nostalgia for OTR, and CBSRMT rode that wave long enough for this person, born in 1968, to catch the fever in first-run episodes, and to forever enjoy audio drama.
