32-07-18 Rush Persuaded to Stay Two More Weeks

STARRING: ART VAN HARVEY, BERNARDINE FLYNN AND BILL IDELSON
  • Sade's frantic, trying to wake Vic. She can't find Rush. they find he had crawled into Vic's bed.  Vic: "Show this rattlesnake outta here."
  • Vic is cajoled to allow Rush to stay in his bed for another fifteen minutes while Sade makes breakfast. They talk baseball; Vic played for the Normal Community Wolves as a pitcher.
  • Rush goes to talk with Sade. He has a new friend – Squirt.  He mentions he likes Vic and Sade very much, but he's going home tomorrow.
  • Sade says she knows he's homesick, and they've got great plans for good times. Rush then agrees to stay a little longer. - compiled by Barbara Schwarz, edited by Jimbo Mason

Not that it matters too much but I believe this is the first time I have heard of sleeping arrangements involving a married couple in radio (and I listen to a lot of old radio...)

The fact they have separate beds might be a Hays Code thing (or whatever it was called for radio at the time.) We know that 1950's and 1960's TV showed us separate beds for all of the couples there as well.
Normal is just north of Bloomington

It's interesting to hear that Vic played baseball for an organized league and probably did so as an adult or near-adult. 

Normal is a suburb of Bloomington - and as you probably know, Bloomington seems to be the setting for the Vic and Sade show.

Maybe it's just a part of human nature that I'm not very familiar with but children being homesick seems to a recurring theme in the show. (Recall that Leland Richards was homesick as well in another episode.)
