"The Greedy Mother," a radio drama by Nahum Stutchkoff

This week we present "The Greedy Mother," one of the most memorable episodes of Nahum Stutchkoff's Round the Family Table, a series that took listeners inside the tenements and homes of ordinary New York Jews. Surprises abound in this WEVD broadcast from Feb. 2, 1940 -- an unlikely melding of Yiddish melodrama and Grand Guignol.

Listen now to "The Greedy Mother" with your RealPlayer.
