    Gunsmoke Comment

    It's somewhat funny listening to how on the old Gunsmoke episodes that you have this brave Matt Dillon, and then you have this like deputy named "Chester" who almost seems to be there for comic-Relief... Sometimes Chester though really does have to be in the Line of fire though...

    About a year ago, a guy I know told me about

    these podcasts on I tunes featuring all sorts of old radio programs for free. What I like the best are the old westerns and the old detective programs. I have always been a classic movie fan so finding these was really cool. Every night when I go to bed, I plug my IPOD...

    Miracle On 34th Street

    I'm listening to this on the radio right now... "You don't understand, he really thinks he -is- Santa Claus..." "I don't care if he thinks he's the EASTER BUNNY! Go find him!"

    I Have Personal Favorites

    I finally embraced the Ipod thing.  I found a good number of old radio shows I really like.  I am particularly fond of the old, campy horror radio shows.  My all time favorite is "The Price Of fear" that was produced by Vincent Price.  Many of the...

    This Isn't Old

    I was out and about today and found a cd of the radio broadcast of the original Star Wars. I listened to a little of it, it's not bad at all.

    Who Is "Talula"?

    My local radio station does 4 hours of old radio shows a week. They're right now airing this long program featuring this actress(?) named Talula. She's about the same age (late 50's) of my Last girlfriend and talks in the same deep thick accent she does :-D -obviously- I enjoy...

    *SQUEE*!!! Did I just do that? :-D More seriously, my first exposure to The Shadow was when my dad used to play the records of this for me when I was a little kid... This was before I was a science fiction fan... The most recently heard Shadow I heard was about sci-fi (time...

    I Never Knew Dragnet Could Be Humorous....

    The episode was called "The Big Revolt" and was about a 'missing person' case which simply turned out to be about an apparently wimpy husband married to the kind of domineering woman I'd probably marry. He just sorta got sick of it and ran away :-D and Sargeant Friday just...

    Detective Shows

    I've always been a huge fan of the old detective shows from radio's golden age. I grew up listening to them with my father. I was lucky enough to stumble on a slew of podcasts that showcase a lot of the detective stories recently. Right now I have the following character...

    Huh!?!? - Not Complaining -

    I just heard on WAMU that more people tune into Ed Walker's old-time radio show "Big Broadcast" on Sunday night than any other show in the Washington, DC area? If so we need to start spreading our hobby to -other cities- now? If this is so popular do you think we could get...

    Too Young

    I am only 43 years old and haven't seen a time without tv. Still, I am drawn to the Gloden Age of Radio. Lux Radio Theater is probably my favorite but I like it all. I look forward to a time when I can sit around the mp3 player with friends and enjoy some theatre of the mind.

    I Restore Old Radios And Play Old Shows On Them..

    I love everything radio...old time radio...Tubes and wood...the smell of dust burning off a softly glowing tube...a green tuning eye staring at you...the amber glow of tuning dial...the raspy noise of the volume control.. I love radio history and the programming of the 30's 40's...

    Interesting How....

    It's interesting to me how people in the USA might view old time radio- and also radio plays. Coming from the UK, we are well provided for in terms of radio drama thanks to BBC Radio 4, but I get the impression that radio drama in the USA (old -time or modern) is a bit more hit...

    Only the Shadow Knows....

    I love old radio shows.   There was one station that used to play old shows on Sunday nights.  I used to drive down to the beach, sit there for a few hours just listening to these fantastic shows.  I miss having the time to do that.......

    Comedies

    The old time radio boadcasts really were well written and if you closed your eyes you can put yourself in the same room with the charaters.  I really enjoy the comedies.  The writers really knew how to put things together to make you laugh.  The Bickersons, Burns and Allen...
