Old Time Radio History #18

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another edition of Old Time Radio History!

Now, we’re going to dive into a simple feature.  One that has lasted for over 80 years, and still is going strong today.  One that…is a champion of justice.  A purveyor of peace.  Riding a large, white horse.

Yes, that’s right! It’s the Lone Ranger! Below is an episode from the long-running radio series.

That’s all I’ve got for you today.  Until next time, I am the Baumeister, and I have been, obediently yours

HI-YO SILVER, AWAY!!!

Old Time Radio History #17

Hello everyone, and welcome back once again to “Old Time Radio History”.  Today, we’re going to dive in something pretty entertaining.  Did you know that the voice of most of the Looney Tunes characters had his own radio show? Well, now you know.  Not only that, but he was a character on his good pal Jack Benny’s show.  I’m sure you’ve probably seen that before in one of my blogs.  He’s Sy the Mexican Musician.  Anyway, below is an episode from The Mel Blanc Show!

Did you have fun? Did you go Ugga Ugga Boo Ugga Boo Boo Ugga? No? Don’t look at me like I’ve got two heads.  Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for you today.  Thank you for joining me.  Until next time, I am the Baumeister, and I have been, obediently yours.

Old Time Radio History #16

Hello everyone, and welcome back once again to “Old Time Radio History”! Today, we’re going to jump ahead in time.  Now, the “Golden Age of Radio” ended on September 30, 1962, when two long-term shows finished their lengthy runs.  Those were “Suspense” and “Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar”.  However, we got a brief little revival with a figure in the Golden Age at the helm:

Created by Hiram Brown, the same man who created Inner Sanctum Mysteries, the show ran every day for the first six years of its, and ultimately aired almost 3,000 episodes, in which there were 1,399 unique episodes.  Here below is the 1st episode, entitled “The Old Ones Are Hard to Kill”.

Did you enjoy the show? Are you ready to dive into the 1,399 unique episodes? I sure am.  Until next time, I am the Baumeister, and I have been, obediently yours.

I first came across this story in one of my English classes in college, and man, did I LOVE this story! Imagine my surprise when I find it as an episode of “Suspense”.  So, without any other hesitation, I give you:

Did you enjoy the program? I certainly did.  Until next time, I am the Baumeister, and I have been, obediently yours.

Old TIme Radio History #14

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another edition of “Old Time Radio History”.  On the docket today, another holiday special.  This time, celebrating New Years! Like last week’s Christmas special, I’m going to keep this short and sweet, because instead of spending time with family, it’s nursing a hangover (or spending more time with family, if you don’t imbibe).

I hope that everyone had a safe and wonderful New Year’s celebration, full of laughs, love, and excitement.  Until next week, I am the Baumeister, and I have been, obediently yours.

Recognize some of the voices? May you have, or have had a very Merry Christmas.  This is the last Old Time Radio History of 2016, so I hope that you will join me in the new year! Until then, I am the Baumeister, and I have been, obediently yours.

Wait, don’t tell me you haven’t heard of Eve Arden.  Of course you have! You just may not know her real name.  She’s Principal McGee in Grease and Grease II! She has an incredible sense of comedic timing and delivery.  She’ll make you laugh your shoes, socks, and even bottoms off.  Below is an episode from the radio show.

Didn’t I tell you? Did you enjoy this week’s post? Well come back next week for another exciting edition of Old Time Radio History, where we get a little festive.  Until then, I have been the Baumeister, and I have been, obediently yours.
