November 25, 1960: CBS Cuts Radio Soap Operas

 
November 25, 1960: CBS turned the knob on radio soap operas, scaling down their five radio soap operas.

The serials cancelled included Right to Happiness (21 years on air), Ma Perkins (27 years on air), The Second Mrs. Burton (14 years on air) Whispering Streets, and Young Doctor Malone (8 years on air). 1940 saw their greatest success, when up to forty-five programs were broadcast daily.
