  The plays for February are:
Luigi Has a Toothache - from the Life with Luigi  Series.

Life with Luigi is an American radio situation comedy series which began September 21, 1948, on CBS Radio and broadcast its final episode on March 3, 1953.

The action centered on Luigi Basco and his experiences as a newly arrived Italian immigrant in Chicago. Many episodes took place at the night school classes that Luigi attended with other immigrants from different countries. Another common theme involved Luigi's landlord/sponsor, Pasquale, scheming to get Luigi to marry his obese daughter.[1] Perennial character actor and two-time Academy Award nominee J. Carrol Naish played Luigi.[2]

Strange Bonfire a British Detective Story written by an American, Wyllis Cooper 1899-1955 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wyllis_Cooper  , which also has a dentist character!.
Wyllis wrote and directed a crime anthology for NBC called Whitehall 1212 that debuted on November 18, 1951. Hosted by Chief Superintendent John Davidson, fictional curator of the Black Museum at Scotland Yard, it featured an allegedly all-British cast and told stories inspired by artifacts held by the famous London crime museum. Cooper's show competed with a similar program (hosted by Orson Welles), which ran on Mutual in 1952.
