    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...

    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...

    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.......

    Detective Shows

    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.

    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 missed the begining, but it seems I just heard a Gunsmoke made before the cast they finished the series with... Not to knock to Georgia Ellis, etc cast, but the drama factor really did seem a little higher in this episode...
