"Welcome to Request Performance, the radio program which answers the mail of our listening audience. Whatever you ask for, you get, so get ready for a few surprises!" 

The first letter is a request from a fourteen year old called Rachel Cowan, who wants to hear Johhny Mercer sing. He chooses to sing a song called "On The Atchison, Topeka and The Santa Fe". Next up is a letter from Mrs Irma Miners of Jackson Heights, New York, who wants to know if ever there was anything Eddie Bracken started out doing, that didn't end up with him getting into trouble... Orson Welles then takes the listeners on a "Trip To The Moon".
