This curtain raiser for The Water Engine takes place in a 1930s radio station. A prim, sincere advice to the lovelorn personality answers - by some magical exposition of instant radio - the letters people have written him. In an unctuous, urbane voice "Mr. Happiness" solves everyone's problems in the best style of a 1930s radio and newspaper "Miss Lonelyhearts."
