S3 Finale! Two James Thurber stories, fully dramatized in the Pulp-Pourri Theatre style by the Narada Radio Company. First off is Thurber's 1942 classic, "The Catbird Seat", telling of the troubles of Mr. Martin, an office worker, who must defend himself against the machinations of a so-called efficiency expert. How Martin deals with her is something you don't want to miss. After that comes "The Topaz Cufflinks Mystery" from 1932, a vignette about a man, a woman, a cop, and a very strange experiment. Together these stories are comedy gold!
