OTR Philately

I was browsing through a book of United States Postage Stamps and realized that there were several stamps featuring films and movie stars, authors, artists, and other entertainers. But there was no set of commemorative stamps dedicated to old radio. I was planning a short blog encouraging OTR fans to write to the citizens commission that decides the content of future stamps when, behold, I discovered four stamps commemorating Jack Benny, Edgar Bergen & Charlie McCarthy, Abbot & Costello, and Fanny Brice. You can see them here. While there are plenty of other radio performers deserving of a stamp, at least we've got these. I need to poke around my stamp connections and see if I can't get a bunch to use for OTR-related postage.
