Hey, I'm new here and already overwhelmed by all the great people and amazing stuff on here! This is my first post so I hope I'm doing it right. Here's an LP I just uploaded to the Internet Archive. It's called Raymond Edward Johnson: Alive and Well and is a recording of him performing for the Society of American Vintage-Radio Enthusiasts back in 1972. I came across it crate-digging at my local record story, and was most excited about Johnson's performance of the Arch Oboler play STEEL, which as far as I know was performed on Arch Oboler's Plays on 6/3/39 but is now lost (at least I've only been able to track down the first half of the show).

According to radiogoldindex.com, Johnson performed "Steel" on the June 16, 1938 episode of Rudy Vallee's The Royal Desserts Hour and a version of that program exists:
