Other Guest Characters:

(These characters have each appeared in only one episode.)
Mr. Gianetti:  From "On the Air". W.E.N.N.'s head writer who composes epic poems, but has difficulty staying focused on the day's task. He doesn't mind a drop or two from the bottle or his hidden flask.
Willis Thorndyke: From Episode 2. W.E.N.N.'s other engineer. He was rather short-sighted when it came to new ideas, and prone to miss meanings. He was sort of an annoying, blunt type of character.
Jack Desmond: From "There but for the Grace". A reporter from the 'Globe', who seems to have had lots of experience with interviewing celebrities. He's tired when he interviews Hilary for an article about Grace Cavendish.
Grace Cavendish: From "There but for the Grace". The Broadway and movie star who was romantically involved with Victor in New York. She had understudied Hilary in Razzle Dazzle and taken over her role after she dumped a little Zinc Sulfate in Hilary's tea. A very kind, thoughtful person since becoming a star. She included everyone in her good graces and good memory... she remembered Mackie and Mr. Eldridge from the past. But she was still wanting to coerce Victor into another try at their lost relationship.
Angela from Avalon: From "Sight Unseen". A fan of WENN who passionately listened to "The Vagabond" and wrote a letter to be read on the air. Although blind, she saw through people pretty clearly.

Dr. Sebastian: From Episode 9. A doctor from Altoona. A nice, positive person who looked like he loved to help people.
Ted E. Peck: From "Valentino". A movie director who got thrown out of Hollywood  to work on Navy films. He couldn't quite handle dialouge and he had rather carnal tendancies in his taste of movies.
Paul Rice:  From "Valentino". A drama student from "Carnegie-Mellon University" (it wasn't founded until 1966). He was an avid fan of Hilary Booth and ended up working for Mr. Peck as Raul Ramano.

Todd Varick:  From "A Capital Idea".?
Mr. Bedlow: From "Newsday". An organist from the local skating rink. A little socially unstable, but definitely trying to break free of unmeaningful work. He only knew one song and didn't know quite what to do with drama.
Giles Aldwych: From "Don't Act Like That". Hilary's former mentor and drama instructor. A very prideful man, and a little bit of a cheapskate, but all in all a great actor and nice person.

Gloria Redmond: From "Christmas in the Airwaves". The owner of WENN, CEO of Globe Enterprises. She is also a very successful recording artist. A deeply hurt lady, suffering from the loss of her husband, but also a kind and generous person who liked the people at WENN very much.

Collins: From "Scott Sherwood of the FBI". A fellow prankster who, very convincingly, pretends to be a real FBI agent.

He turned out to be a nice person in the end who seemed to actually love Hilary.
Bishop Kenneth Quinn: From "Nothing Up My Sleeve". The guest on "Magic Time" who was accused of having pictures of bathing beauties, but really only had a very rare religious book. He didn't want to hang around Alan any more than he had to.
Palermo Racine: From "A Star in Stripes Forever". Mackie's former employer who had a little run in with the law. He's still not above employing a little blackmail to further his "insurance" company.
Link: From "A Star in Stripes Forever". One of Palermo's "men", as opposed to "gentlemen". He's pretty willing to do whatever Palermo wants.
Bob Farraday: From "A Girl Like Maple".
