One of the coolest finds in the cassette archive is a cassette containing two 1961 episodes from The Cartoonist's Art, a radio program hosted by then-Bringing Up Father cartoonist Verne Greene for what was then WRVR in New York City. Appearing on these episodes were Dick Tracy creator Chester Gould, and Wash Tubbs/Buz Sawyer cartoonist Roy Crane. Enjoy these near-forgotten moments from the history of comics!
