Summary

Pearl Without Price,  First the worst: your five dollar check bounced. N’importe. I made it good, and you can pay me back when . . . the primroses come back to 49th Street.  Poet Mark Ford has described the letters of James Schuyler as “witty, graceful, sophisticated, and gossipy.” Particularly poignant are these Schuyler letters to fellow poet Frank O’Hara. Entertaining and transcendently poetic, they are the portrait of a friendship between two great New York School poets.

    Implicating extremes from Coriolanus to Karen Carpenter, David McGimpsey’s Sitcom is both serious poetry and a work of comedy. Mischievous, generous and side-splittingly funny, this collection of wry soliloquies and sonnets begins with a milestone birthday and finds itself in demi-mondes as varied as the offices of university regents and the basic plot arc of Hawaii Five-O – offering, along the way, a sincere contemplationof mortality and the fashion sense of Mary Tyler Moore. Unembarrassed by its literary allusions or its hi-lo hybridity, Sitcom’s strategic and encompassing voice is prepared for each comedic disaster and is, somehow, always ready for next week’s episode.
     
    ‘McGimpsey displays erudition, clever insights and a knack for the wickedly funny wisecrack.’
     
    – The Washington Post
     
    ‘[McGimpsey] finds thehumanity hiding in the hilarity. This guy is as funny as David Sedaris, and more inventive.’

    The Lux Radio Theatre was radio’s most important dramatic hour, commanding the top Hollywood stars, the biggest budgets, and the best writing, directing and sound effects. Cecil B. DeMille, the long-time host, was often shown in publicity photographs as overseeing every aspect of each broadcast, but the reality is that the show’s real directors - Tony Stanford, Frank Woodruff, Fred MacKaye and Earl Ebi - did all of the heavy lifting from week to week, including keeping the stars’ egos in check and making sure everything went off without a hitch. This collection offers six broadcasts of The Lux Radio Theatre,  just as originally aired over CBS in 1939, transferred directly from C. B. DeMille’s personal recordings and fully restored for outstanding audio fidelity.
