Entertainment

My wife and I have been collecting and listening to recordings of 1930's-1950's radio programs like "Fibber Magee & Molly", "Our Miss Brooks", "Burns & Allen", "The Whistler", "Inner Sanctum" etc. These programs are especially enjoyable while having breakfast (comedies) or after dinner (mysteries) in the Bambi at a remote campground.

along that line- we took the "long, long, trailer" (lucy and desi), and 'the great escape"(steve mcqueen) on our last trip. My kids realize how good movies can be with no special effects, and no real nasty language. Amazing.

old radio programs source

For Tricon, who wanted to know where to find old time radio programs. They are available through internet sites. Do a Google or other search engine search under "old time radio downloads". You download them as MP3 files, then if you have a cd burner on your computer, you can record them to cd. If you want to play them in a standard cd player, you have to convert the MP3 files to a Wave file before burning them to cd. Your cd burning software should handle this task.

I have been downloading old programs and songs for about a year and so far have accumulated a couple thousand programs. My wife and I like to listen to them while towing. Makes the miles fly right by. Kind of hard to hear though over my Cummings engine.

Post again if I can be of any help. If you can't find the sites I can furnish the url's of a few.

Bruce

thanks

Bruce,
Thanks for the info, will try it. Should be fun listening on our way out west this month.
We don't take tv during our annual 6 month sojourns, but we do listen to the radio and have come across some interesting shows here and there.
Thanks again

T & C

The premier source for "Ol' Timey" radio classics is:

When Radio Was or Radio Spirits

Stan Freeburg is a great host on the radio show. We have been listening to his syndicated show on Houston 740 AM radio for many years on Sunday nights.

John HD: We are also Huge "Raising Arizona" fans. Edwina and H.I. McDonnough would make great neighbors.

Don't Pay

Bobby, your site is fine, but no need to pay for otr. One can find all they want and more for FREE!

Here are a few of the sites that I use:

http://www.compusmart.ab.ca/agirard/fibber/79.htm
http://www.otrcat.com/w/1.htm
http://www.otrcat.com/w/1.htm
http://senior.billings.k12.mt.us/cgi-bin/otrvdyn.pl
http://www.quietplease.org/
http://www.salt4pepper.freewebspace.com/
http://www.streamload.com

The last site involves setting up a free account in which you can download 50 megs a week, which is about eight or nine 1/2 hr. programs. The downside is that there is a 10 mb program limit which eliminates some of the 1 hour programs. I will follow this post with the url for a list of shows that members post for streaming to fellow members. Both my wife and I have accounts so we can get about 16 or 18 shows per week. That is a lot of listening in itself........and all for free!

Enjoy!

Bruce

Buying otr programs

I have mentioned that otr radio is available for free, but if anyone insists on buyng old radio programs, I'll sell mine. I have 14 cds with at least 100 random programs on them in MP3 format. These will play on your computer or in a MP3 player. Will sell them for $10.00 each. If you want a cd that plays in a regular player, I will be able to get two and sometimes three 1/2 hr programs on them. Will provide these for $7.00 each.

Some of the programs that I have are: Gunsmoke, Have Gun Will Travel, Fibber McGee and Molly, The Great Gildersleeve, Jack Benny, The Shadow, Quiet Please and many more. Also have some old time music such as Sons of the Pioneers from 1934 and 1935 (more than one hundred of these). Can get 28 to 30 songs on a cd that will play on a regular player. Will sell these for $7.00 each.

Buyer to pay postage.

If interested, just email me.

Bruce
