Just post what you're listening to. Post as much as you want. Even every day if you want to. I'm just trying to get an idea of what you all like so I can add more shows of that type.

Example: A new member asked me how to find the "Tom Mix" shows in an email the other day. I noticed we only had 10 of them. I was able to find a few more today and uploaded them. If I see you like a certain show, I'll see how many we have and if maybe we can get more of that series. I want this to be a one-stop place for all of your favorite shows. If we're missing something, just let me know.


I'll start it off.

Tom Mix
"Vanishing Village" in four parts.

Thanks,

Brad

Right now I am listening to Walk Softly Peter Troy and Let George Do It. It's a lot of fun finding new shows that have been harder to find.
Happy Listening.

Right now I am listening to "The Epic Casebook." Just have a couple episodes left to go. A great series that deserves much more attention than it receives.

Tonight I've listened to an episode of "Hollywood Barn Dance" and I've got an episode of "The Lone Ranger" up next. Then I see there is a show with Hank Williams in it in the rare section. Think I'll load that up too!

So many shows, so little time.

See you around the clubhouse.

I usually have to wake up early in the mornings, so I head off to bed at around 9:30 PM or so. I will take my iPod with me and usually listen to two episodes of "Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar" before drifting off to sleep. I've been thru 40 episodes so far.

At work, I normally have it tuned to XM164 Radio Classics and have it on all day long. I like it because it has a variety of different shows and from there, I write down the ones I like.

I didn't think I would care for "Tarzan", but guess what, I heard an episode today while driving home and will check them out.

I have decided there that there really isn't anything I don't like with OTR. I still like that fact that there isn't a show that I would be embarrasses to have someone listen to.

Thanks Brad for all that you do!!!!

Nostalgia Radio Time Show #104 2nd annual New Year's Big Band Bash Air Date: 12/28/13

Sixty minutes of Big Band music, starting with Artie Shaw and ending with Guy Lombardo, and taking in most of the big names along the way. Stirring stuff. http://www.1420thebreeze.com/audio-archives

Let George Do It 49-01-03 Murder and One to Go

Hired to find an old-time movie star who's disappeared, George [Bob Bailey] has a bright idea and hires a cinema on Skid Row to screen one of her silent movies. Script OK, sound not so good on this one.

Jack Benny – Gracie Wants to Listen to Jack on the Radio. 470112

Tired of always setting the scene in Jack’s house, Don takes us to the home of George Burns and Gracie Allen instead. Gracie wouldn’t miss Jack’s program for the world, but for all her desire, she sure balks at turning on the radio. Maybe Gracie ought to go down to the studio to play the part of leading lady for Jack?

Black Museum – The Sash Cord 1952

Orson Welles narrates a story of murder among showfolk. Who killed the carpenter behind the theatre? Things get a little complicated at the climax and I'm not completely sure who went to the gallows in the end.

Song and Dance 2014-01-05 with Damien Beaumont, Music selected by Bob Maynard.
Rodgers and Hart - Program 1 of 3 - Favourites and rarities from ten shows by the great songwritng team, beginning with a number from the Theatre Guild revue Garrick Gaieties (1925) and ending with a hit from The Boys from Syracuse (1938).

Superman - "The Mystery Ship"
Original Air Dates: December 23,24, 28-31 1942 (pt. 3 missing)

Clark Kent and his friends, returning from their search for Atlantis (!), end up on a ship that seems like a latter-day Marie Celeste. And what can we deduce from the behavior of the Great Dane?

1) Rocky Jordan - great series - plenty of episodes here and well researched
for background and accuracy.

2) Hercule Poirot BBC episodes. Great multi part series and well produced.

3) occasionally I go back to Secrets of Scotland Yard but quality could be better.

Island of Sheep (BBC 1983)

Three-part adaptation of the John Buchan novel, with Nigel Anthony playing Richard Hannay. In later life, Hannay is plunged back into danger by an oath he once swore to an old friend. This leads to a confrontation on a remote island somewhat reminiscent of the recent James Bond movie Skyfall.

Cisco Kid (1953) #589 Dynamite at Rye Creek
ZIV Syndication, sponsored by Butter-nut Bread

Harry Lang was ill during this series, so Mel Blanc is on hand as Jack Mather's comical sidekick.
In this one, Pancho and Cisco wander into a cattlemen versus sheepherders dispute, but the real menace is a ruthless killer who likes to use a bow and arrow to drop sticks of dynamite onto his enemies.
Nice clear sound thanks to a cache of discs found some time ago in Des Moines.

Challenge Of The Yukon. April 24, 1948. Program #527. "Rusty".

A prospector loses his grubstake to a riverboat gambler on his way to Dawson. A complicated plot ensues, but you can be sure the guy who said he hates dogs will turn out to be a baddie (this show was 100% for and about dog lovers!). We even get a singing commercial for "Stop The Music" sung by Kay Armen but no Quaker Oats commercial - this was just before they started sponsoring the show.

A Case for Doctor Morelle

Episode 1: Alarm Call 1957-04-23 BBC Light Programme

Cecil Parker is the brilliant but irascible sleuth with Sheila Sim as his Watson.

Adventures of the Abbotts
55-02-27 #21 "Burnt Copper Powder"

Passable private-eye melodrama. Actress and dancer Claire Luce makes a rare appearance on radio as one of the suspects in a Hollywood murder case.

SUSPENSE "The Customers Like Murder" 3/23/43

Engaging story by John Dickson Carr features Roland Young as an Edgar Wallace type novelist who has to use all his ingenuity when he's kidnapped by gangsters. A lot of fun. I hadn't heard this one before it turned up on the Attaboy Clarence podcast.

'The Challenge Of The Yukon'. September 6, 1948. "The Bridge" a.k.a. "Shots in the Dark".
Scar Edwards has been gunned down. Jim Richards asks his sister for help before he leaves town in a hurry. Another case for the North West Mounted Police and Sgt Preston.
(An announcement is made that the program will now be heard on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.)
An unusual part of the plot is that two men are shot, but both recover! A rare adventure with no deaths.

Today's listening in the car:
Cisco Kid - "Bandits of the Great Swamp" 1955-04-28

This is a bit different - instead of chasing bad guys across the desert, Cisco is trying to locate the hideout of a bandit gang in a wet year when the wilderness is full of lakes and swamps. Australia farmers can sympathize.

This weekend:

The Red Skelton Show
3/19/46
Clem Kadidlehopper takes a driving test! Lots of laughs and music.

Nick Carter 43-07-06 #13 "The Echo of Death" (or The Phantom Clue)
America's top financial journalist is found dead in a locked cottage in the woods. Suicide, or a fiendishly clever murder?

Fibber McGee & Molly 35-11-04 (030) Papering The Dining Room
A "lost episode" apparently discovered in a snowdrift in Canada. This one sees the handyman of 79 Wistful Vista attempting to redecorate with the expected problems.

Listen to the Band
2014-03-20
Some nice music including Tredegar Town Band playing Chaplain's "Smile".

Imagination Theater
WEEK 938 - THE HILARY CAINE MYSTERIES - Playing the Innocent
Episode 15 of The Hilary Caine Mysteries. Hilary Caine is on holiday in the post-war Bahamas without a single dead body in sight… almost. She’s got one deceased British diplomat and far too many people confessing to the murder. Fans of Ian Fleming will enjoy this one!

The Whistler May 30, 1954. "That Cutlerville Affair".
The wife of a small-town realtor inherits a fortune -- but that skeleton in his closet may be a problem. Gripping thriller starring Lawrence Dobkin, with Bill Forman as the Whistler who knows "many strange tales, hidden in the hearts of men and women who have stepped into the shadows. Yes... I know the nameless terrors of which they dare not speak." Aaaaaagh.

Theatre Five. July 14, 1965. ABC. "The Walls Of Poison Ivy" by Albert G. Miller
Three men attending a college reunion meet for the first time in 25 years. Things take a turn for the odd when one of them announces he has spent his entire life trying to evade his destiny -- of becoming a murderer.
One thing is a little distracting: one of the characters is a writer from New York named Ellery - but no, he's not Ellery Queen.

Old Time Radio is for the birds. Well, it was today.

ADVENTURES BY MORSE “The Girl on Shipwreck Island” part 1 (~1944). Captain Friday and his sidekick Skip Turner crash on a Pacific island. The girl's name is Gracie, the talking parrot is Belshazzur, the pirate is named Manuel, and the corpse is, or was, The Cockney.

And Tippy is the talking bird with the secret to “The Kingdom Under the Sea”, on THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, but how to make him talk?? Clark, Jimmy, and private eye Candy Meyers try to arrange a meeting with “The Boss” who can make the bird sing in chapters 7 & 8 from Mutual on Thursday and Friday Feb 26-27, 1948.

Thanks to Max Schmid's Golden Age of Radio.
