    The original show was aired on April 27th, 1947 and starred Marie Wilson (photo above on left)  as Irma and Cathy Lewis as Jane Stacy.  

    Synopsis: Jane Stacy is intent upon setting up a budget that she and her roommate, Irma Peterson can live within…but Irma’s boyfriend, Al, shows up with a get-rich-quick plan that involves entering a washed-up prizefighter in an upcoming match.  The only thing he needs to do this is a “little capital!”   There goes The Rent Money! 




    Ronnie Tomanio (photo above) , co-host on Don’t Dis My Ability (Every other Tuesday 3:30-4:15 PM)  returns with another excellent story, A Grain of Sand.   Based on a personal experience many years ago, this thoughtful and  touching story connects family, friendship and love with the passage of time and the inevitable changes that come about.   Ronnie wrote and will read the story.  Don’t miss it! 


    Ernest Chappell (photo above) is our narrator and storyteller in one of the most critically acclaimed fantasy-horror shows on radio… Quiet Please.  Tonight’s episode is entitled  A Very Unimportant Person \and was originally heard on December 5th, 1948.   This is top-notch radio from the Golden Age of Radio!

    Don’t Dis’ My Ability - Tuesday - March 8th - 3:30 to 4:15 PM - Hosts: Ronnie Tomanio and John Eubanks - A Very Powerful Show of Creativity and Courage - You Are Invited To Meet Cheyenne… A Young Lady You Won’t Forget.
    March 6th, 2011

    Ronnie and John will be hosting as Ali has gone on a much deserved vacation… but we miss you Ali!
    Today’s guest, Cheyenne, is a thirteen-year-old girl who is in a wheelchair and is fed by a G-tube. She goes to school when the weather is good. She is very creative and loves to write, but she is unable to speak to us directly, using a speaking device to communicate. Cheyenne has  written a song that one of her aides has set to music and sings. We will hear that song today. Cheyenne’s grandmother, who has raised her, will also be in the studio along with one of Cheyenne’s aids.  Ronnie has provided Cheyenne the questions he will ask today in advance so that she will have had the chance to program her responses into her speaking device.

    This will be a show you will not forget because it will emphasize the good parts of this remarkable young lady’s life.  Please join us to meet Cheyenne and hear her remarkable story of courage and creativity.
