A couple fills for me too, Bobby.  I have a (partial) log for this show based mostly on info from NY Times. I sent it to OTTER but it looks like they only used the titles and not the dates. If anyone is interested, here t'is

This one could be dated either October 23, 1954, or August 31, 1955. The latter date appears to be a re-broadcast of the 1954 show.

Alistair Cooke, Faye Emerson and Dr. Gregory Zilboorg join Clifton Fadiman in a discussion of "Love in America."

My thanks to everyone contributing to this thread.  A great series.  Sad that the art of conversation seems to have all but disappeared along with the art of letter writing.
