In Your Hat, pt. 1 ⋆ Cladrite Radio
If you're at all like us (and honestly, who wouldn't want to be?), the celebrity gossip of the 1920s, '30s, '40s, and '50s is a lot more interesting than the blather that's bandied about today. So we're excited to share with you the introduction (contributed by Louis Sobol, a Broadway columnist of long standing for the Hearst newspapers) and first chapter of a 1933 memoir by Renee Carroll, a woman who, in her role as hat check gal at NYC's Sardi's restaurant (and this is when Sardi's was Sardi's, friends), got to know the rich and famous (and occasionally even talented) on an intimate basis.
