About Aline Dixon (Berry)
"Miss Aline Berry was featured in the monologue on the Rudy Vallee variety program the night of June 13, 1935. It was the same night that Jim Braddock won the heavyweight championship from Max Baer and the interest of the entire country was centered on the prize ring.
"The sketch was written to take full advantage of the sound effect man's box of tricks. The voice of Miss Tithinwither was heard against an audible background of an excited crowd at the ringside and the listener heard the bell, the thud of gloves and other sounds picturing intense action. On paper, the sketch is a monologue. On the air it was comedy panorama. ... This sketch played approximately five minutes, but because of clever use of sound effects the listener was not conscious of the fact that only one person was talking for five minutes."
