The short intro: For those who are unfamiliar with the concept, Old Time Radio is the phrase generally used to refer to the time when radio was (mostly) live, and was full of a variety of different shows, as opposed to simply being a means for record labels to use robots to promote the top records of the day. Old Time Radio Thursdays is my chance to explore some of those old radio shows, their connections (both old and new) to movies, and hopefully to encourage some of the rest of you to take a look at a probably unfamiliar source of entertainment that I truly love. If you want more info on OTR, and some examples of the variety of shows that were made, be sure to check out this introductory post.
Just as we did with Halloween during October, I thought we’d take a look at some Old Time Radio shows that revolve around a Thanksgiving theme for at least part of this month. So here you go folks, a roundup of shows that hopefully you won’t think are turkeys:
Next week? Even more Old Time Radio shows to be thankful for.
Until next time, Happy Listening!
