For those who grew up with what is now called “old time radio,” the name Nila Mack prompts a quick response: “Let’s Pretend!” On August 18, 1930, Nila Mack took over a children’s program that had been on the air and evolving under several names since 1928. The format and name changed one more time when it became Let’s Pretend in 1934. By then, the former actress and writer had taken over writing, casting, producing and directing the program that became a Saturday morning favorite of kids everywhere for 24 years. Arthur Anderson joined the cast at age 13 and was on almost every week until the program ended. He presents a fond remembrance that covers all aspects of the show, its producer and cast. Dozens of cast photos and a complete log of the series.Forward by Norman Corwin
