September 7: Happy Birthday, Peter Lawford

A member of the Rat Pack, a Kennedy in-law, and a good-looking British-born actor, Peter Lawford was born today in 1923.

Lawford is well known for his roles in "The Picture of Dorian Gray," "Above Suspicion," and "Son of Lassie."

Radio-wise, he graced the airwaves on shows such as The Frank Sinatra Show, Suspense, and Lux Radio Theater.

Being a member of the Rat Pack, glamorous though it may be, is not without its hazards. The story goes that after Lawford had fallen out of Sinatra's favor, when he went to see the singer performing, Sinatra refused to go on until Lawford had left.

We're happy to commemorate the birth and life of Peter Lawford, radio great!
