There's a reason why actor-producer-writer Elliott Lewis was known as "Mr. Radio": simply put, he was one of the most creative talents to ever work in the medium, and while his program ON STAGE lasted but a year-and-a-half it produced some truly outstanding radio drama. It's most heartening to see Radio Spirits release this kind of adventuresome product alongside their multiple Johnny Dollar collections. Cathy Lewis should not be slighted here -- she was a phenomenal actress, and is the perfect compliment to Elliott in the broadcasts encompassing this collection. All of the productions are first-rate, but I draw special attention to "The Party," "Call Me a Cab," and my personal favorite, "Statement of Fact."
