Hal Block:  Returning from the USO, Block was the writer for Ed Wynn's return to radio after a ten-year absence. Wynn had been a pioneer of early radio.  Although Block was a highly successful comedy writer for over 15 years, today he is most often remembered as an original panelist of the television game show What's My Line? who was fired from the show in only its third season, reportedly for inappropriate on-air behavior.
