  Quiet Please
The man who wrote and directed all the Quiet Please episodes was Wyllis Cooper who was born January 26, 1899 and died June 22, 1955.
The structure of Quiet Please, all first person narrative, demanded that the writing be first class - it all depended on your acceptance and immediate involvement within that stream of consciousness dialogue and Wyllis Cooper delivered week after week.
In fact, unlike another much recognized theme from the popular radio show The Shadow (Omphale's Spinning Wheel), the Quiet Please theme itself was played within several of the stories as a plot device and so actually moved beyond it's operative realm to became one of the "personalities" who created the weekly illusion of Quiet Please.

  Quiet, Please - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quiet, Please was an old-time radio fantasy and horror program created by Wyllis Cooper, also known for creating Lights Out.
Quiet, Please was first broadcast by ABC on June 8, 1947, and its last episode ran on June 25, 1949.
Though the general thrust of the stories were fantasy, horror and suspense, Cooper's scripts for Quiet Please often covered a large thematic range, including humor (some of it quite self-deprecating) romance, science fiction and crime and family drama.

 Quiet Please? - Scene
Although the university has designed several places that appear to be meant for quiet study, there's always that one annoying study group that ruins everything for you...
Sometimes it's the whole group making noise, laughing and messing around while everyone else is treating the room like the Grotto, but often enough there's the case of the single kid in the group whose parents just never got around to teaching him how to whisper.
Please take a cue and try to migrate toward some of the more acceptable places to be loud on campus...and tuck away those jean shorts for the winter.

 Flight Test Journal: Shhh...quiet please
Using a 777-300ER made available to us by All Nippon Airways, we worked with several key partners to test future technology that can substantially reduce airplane noise on landings and take-offs, a big issue the public and airline passengers have with air travel.
The 777 is a good platform because the airplane operates with extremely efficient and quiet engines and uses the most advanced noise reduction technology available.
General Electric, Goodrich and NASA came to Boeing's remote airfield in Glasgow, Mont., to test technology that targets engines and landing gear, the most prominent airplane noise producers.

 LATE-NIGHT: Quiet, Please   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
"Quiet, Please," an anthology of the strange, the suspenseful and the supernatural, was a precursor to "The Twilight Zone."
Created and solely written by Wyllis Cooper (who also created "Lights Out," and who Rod Serling once cited as an influence on his own work), "Quiet, Please" is a landmark in horror writing, relying on richly drawn and deeply human characters to chill its audience.
The suggestion was made that perhaps there might be a bit more focus on the "fl box" kind of show, the sort of thing that would rely on, and showcase, the sort of quality actors the company has in abundance.

He says that although some manufacturers of household goods are attempting to quiet down their products, most of them fail to communicate such information effectively to buyers.
For example, the developers of the Block X complex of townhouses and condominiums in the West Loop worked with Shiner's firm to add insulation and adapt construction methods to reduce the sound transmission both above and below each unit and side to side.
Dishwasher manufacturers have tackled the noise issue a couple of ways: Some have just plain quieted the motors and circulation pumps; others have switched from one noisy motor to two smaller, and theoretically quieter ones.

When the racketeers lug those blaring box radios so provocatively through the streets and the parks, you can call your local precinct, and the police are supposed to send out a squad car to "warn and admonish" the culprit and seize his radio as evidence if he won't stifle the noise.
