231-141020 In the Old-Time Radio Corner - Arch Oboler's Plays

Arch Oboler sold his first short story to a magazine when he was ten. 

He started writing for radio because he thought radio should be a lot more than the soap operas he was hearing. 

Most people either loved him or hated him.  His "strong personality" (which got him expelled from college) often overshadowed his genius. 

Oboler wrote some of the best radio plays ever aired.  He wrote this one after World War II war correspondent Ernie Pyle was killed by a Japanese sniper just months before the war ended.
