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.
I’ll be back next week with a more in depth look at one of Old Time Radio’s most enduring dramatic shows (and one of my all-time favorites) but for now, here are some episodes for you to simply listen to. Consider it a preview, if you will, of these tales calculated to keep you in…
Until next time, as always, Happy Listening!
