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.

Together these stories are comedy gold!
