Lurene Tuttle was the "first lady of radio" and one of the most-heard women in America during the 1940s and 50s. No matter where you turned your dial, you'd probably hear her on the air. She was Sam Spade's secretary, the Great Gildersleeve's niece, and the mom of Red Skelton's "mean widdle kid" Junior, just to mention a few. We'll hear her in a pair of radio thrillers - first as a woman held hostage by a gunman waiting to kill her husband in "The Tip" (originally aired on CBS on July 6, 1954). Then, she co-stars with Rosalind Russell in "The Sisters," a dark tale of sibling rivalry (originally aired on CBS on December 9, 1948).
