In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Jan 14, 2014

This show had everything going for it.  A Hollywood star in the lead role, a great radio network, excellent writing, and fantastic reviews.

Still, CBS cancelled it after just three months. 

Mickey Rooney played Shorty Bell, who worked in the newspaper business like his father before him. 

But Shorty wanted to be a reporter, instead of the truck driver who delivered the newspaper bundles around town.

This is the first episode of Shorty Bell, from March 28, 1948.
