Still Sick

I enjoy a lot of the old-time radio shows and have a membership on Vintage Radio Shows. Here is an Old Time Radio classic. Abbott and Costello with Peter Lorre. Costello gets a cold and winds up at Peter Lorre’s Sanatorium. Peter Lorre was a famous horror actor in the 40’s and 50’s, known for his buggy eyes and creepy voice. Originally aired on January 13, 1944, at the height of WW2 and you can hear a couple of jabs at the enemy. My favorite line is, “You don’t have to fear flu. To be free from flu, you must flee when flu flies.”

    Nice old time radio is pretty awesome. Although that was a tad creepy.

      Peter Lorre was a tad creepy. This one kind of poked fun at his on-screen persona.
