Short Stories Live: Stories From The Saturday Evening Post says
Since The first edition of the Saturday Evening Post came out in 1898 a it has reached a huge populist audience with writers such as William Faulkner, Dorothy Parker, early J.D. Salinger, William Saroyan, Rex Stout, Louis L’Amour, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. This program touches on the magazine’s desire to entertain (P.G.Wodehouse); catch hold of new trends like science fiction (Robert Heinlein); and capitalize on the social fears of the day through horror ( Shirley Jackson). The post serialized novels, and served as easily-digestible entertainment for its mainstream, middle class audience.

* P.G.Wodehouse, Chapter 1 of Leave it to PSmith (a novel, serialized by SEP in 1923)
