“Information Please” was the greatest quiz show in the history of Old Time Radio.  In this episode, there’s a lot of talk about the upcoming 1940 presidential election, plus yet another reference to the Dione quintuplets.  Then, in honor of the start of the baseball season, it’s time for an episode of “X Minus One,” the science fiction anthology program.  The 21st Century Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team find themselves at of the bottom of the standings.  How on earth – make that how on Mars – will they ever make it to the playoffs?
