Add section on Gabel as a radio actor?[edit]

Martin Gabel also acted for Orson Welles's Mercury Theatre, according to [his biography on]. In 1937, i.e. before the creation of the Mercury Theatre, he played Javert in Orson Welles's 7-part production of Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, the recordings of which are available at Would this information justify adding a section on Gabel as a radio actor?
