Gigi finished the Starry Night out of Opal Vanilla socks, and she is working on the heels of a pair of Vanilla socks. She is planning to participate in Voolenvine's Box o'sox KAL.

 

Jasmin is thrilled with the responses she got to her issue of knitting with black yarn. She also has made a little progress on the sleeves for the Anna cardigan.

Vibram, How FiveFingers Came To Be - Chris Melton #123  

As an avid barefooter, I’ve tried countless barefooting shoes over the years, but none compare to Vibram FiveFingers. I’ve been a fan of FiveFingers for some time — they have allowed me to develop a foot dexterity, nimbleness and strength that I didn’t know was possible! It was so exciting to get a chance to talk to Vibram’s Director of Sales and Distribution, Chris Melton.

Chris shares the story of Vibram's early beginnings, how FiveFingers came to be, the evolution of some of their most loved models and what we can look forward to from them in the future. Most importantly, he answers every Vibram fan’s burning question: Is it pronounced Vee-bram or Vy-brum?? Whether you’re a loyal Vibram FiveFingers aficionado or a fan of barefooting in general, this show is for you!

Philo Vance - Argyle Murder Case (06-27-50)  


Argyle Murder Case (Aired June 27, 1950)
Philo Vance was the detective creation of S. S. Van Dine first published in the mid 1920s. Vance, in the original books, is an intellectual so highly refined he seems he might be ghostwritten by P. G. Wodehouse. Take this quote from The Benson Murder Case, 1924, as Vance pontificates in his inimitable way: "That's your fundamental error, don't y' know. Every crime is witnessed by outsiders, just as is every work of art. The fact that no one sees the criminal, or the artist, actu'lly at work, is wholly incons'quential." Thankfully, the radio series uses only the name, and makes Philo a pretty normal, though very intelligent and extremely courteous gumshoe. Jose Ferrer played him in 1945. From 1948-1950, the fine radio actor Jackson Beck makes Vance as good as he gets. George Petrie plays Vance's constantly impressed public servant, District Attorney Markham. Joan Alexander is Ellen Deering, Vance's secretary and right-hand woman. The organist for the show is really working those ivories, and fans of old time radio organ will especially enjoy this series. Perhaps one reason the organist "pulls out all the stops" is because there seems to be little, Show Notes From The Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. THIS EPISODE: June 27, 1950. Program #69. ZIV Syndication. "The Argyle Murder Case". Commercials added locally. An actor's dead body is found on a ferryboat. The body has on all new clothes...and argyle socks that don't match. Jackson Beck. 32:03. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.
