Ed Lindsay has been living in the same boarding house for over 20 years and he has become an embittered old man. He doesn't like how the world has changed around him and his crotchety behavior has made him certainly the most disliked man there. When he turns on his old radio however, he gets music from the 1940's on a station that, it turns out, has been off the air for 15 years. There's a reason he hears the music however, a reason a fellow boarder reminds him of. Written by
Around and around she goes, and where she stops, nobody knows. All Ed Lindsay knows is that he desperately wanted a second chance, and he finally got it - through a strange and wonderful time machine called a radio - in The Twilight Zone.

Dean Jagger plays Ed Lindsay, who is currently living in the same boarding house for 20 years, and become a crotchety old man, dissatisfied with the modern world, and especially television, which his fellow boarders watch obsessively. When Ed discovers an old radio in storage, he is bewildered but delighted when it plays only old time big band music like Tommy Dorsey, which it turns out only he can hear, convincing the others he's going senile, but an old flame(played by Carmen Mathews) still secretly loves and believes him... Sadly videotaped episode suffers for it, but sincerity of the performances and charming nature of the premise make up for it.
