Also with us the Royal Academy of Radio Acting: Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Tom Keith, sitting in with the Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band, the Manhattan maestro Andy Stein, Guy Noir lends a hand to aspiring Broadway singer Lucille Potts, plus an older guy in a rumpled tuxedo and red sneakers handing out the candy.
