Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Why I love old time radio, a short video.

Hi all, while I was cataloging some of my radio shows I ran across an episode of the Halls of Ivy I hadn't heard before. I've posted stuff here about this show before, if you're not familiar here's a brief rundown. The show first aired in 1950 and revolved around the small college of Ivy that was presided over by it's President Dr. and Mrs. Hall. Played by Ronald Colman and his real life wife Benita. It was written by Don Quinn who was also the head writer for Fibber McGee and Molly. In the last few minutes of the 1950 January 27th, episode Dr. Hall makes a brief, less than one minute long, speech that contains some of the most eloquent writing, and acting I've ever heard. I edited out the speech and created a short animation. Hope you enjoy.
