Well I have to say that apart from being an interesting article, I noticed that you had placed an apostrophe at the end of the word brothers, which is the correct way to do for plurals that end in s, but most people unfortunately don't know that.

Rats, another bit of punctuation: at the end of the Flywheel Shyster & Flywheel paragraph it seems a colon is needed after "after" (before "Duck Soup"). To judge from what went above, Duck Soup came after the redio season, Best of all to replace that "after" with a colon. But now it's in the edited guide, is it too late?

Nope, disregard that, it makes perfect sense as it is on rereading it while awake. Back to sleep.
