New York City had The First Nighter, Chicago had Curtain
Time. The shows were quite similar.
The idea in each case was that you were not listening to your radio, but actually attending the premiere of a new play in the downtown theatre district.
Most of the plays on Curtain Time were lighthearted comedy romances.
This play, The Dishonest Ghost, first aired on July 10, 1948.
