"Mr. President"

originally aired in 1947 and 1948

Yeah, we're not going to tell you the specific episodes that we're doing or when they aired.
Because the old time radio show Mr. President was a unique kind of program that dramatized some little-known tales of our past Commander in Chiefs, and they would not reveal the identiry. He was only referred to as Mr. President.
So in order to give you as close to the same experience, we're going to keep the names a secret until the very end.
Hoaever, these stories are quite exciting.Our first one shows a president full of mischief as he continues to elude his protective and ever-watchfull secret service. However, due to the tensions from a Coach Miner's strike, an angry intruder comes marging into the oval office and the president finds himself all alone with this man... holding a gun.
Our second story tells of a President who had a dream that foreshadowed his own death.
It's all true, you know. These things really did happen.
And you'll find out who each of our brave Presidents were by the end of our program.
