A very rare and unusual four hours of free listening experience presented live here on WYYR with child star actor Mr. Darryl Hickman. It's unusual because you get to hear many of the movie trailers of the films he was in including some of his scenes. Quite rare for radio and certainly a treat for any 1930's and 1940's movie fan.
