The Dogcast: “I Was A Communist For The FBI” delightfully corny old radio fun!
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with some more old radio fun! In honor of the new government-themed David O. Russell film “Amsterdam” I’ve got and old radio program from the early 1950s that’ll probably tickle your fancy. “I Was A Communist For The FBI” starred Dana Andrews as Matt Cvetic, an FBI agent who spent nine years as a Communist spy. It’s goofy propoganda at it’s finest although the rah-rah nature of the old radio show can be a little bitter when you consider that soon Joe McCarthy and his goons in Washington would soon be blacklisting all variety of entertainers for allegedly Communist ties. That said, “I Was A Communist For The FBI” is a fun show that has plenty of entertainment value to this day and, in the overall scheme of things, is a harmless diversion worth listening to. Enjoy the shows and feel free to comment either below or on my Facebook Page! So Sayeth The Kendog!
