THE SHOWS THAT ARE TIMELESS.

There was a time when radio was the premier media of our nation and the world. It engaged the mind and allowed for personal entertainment of the imagination.

The form and substance of radio has changed. Today the radio and it's programs are greatly diminished from previous glories. We believe in the preservation of the historic contribution of radio and it's programs.

This is more than nostalgia. It's a return to substantial entertainment.

Adventure shows brought suspense, mystery, excitement, and terror into the minds of listeners. They could be detective shows, westerns, or many others but they engaged the mind in a way that television or movies could never do.

From horror to mystery the adventure show demanded that the listener "FILL-IN-THE-BLANKS." The disembodied voices of the actors were full of expression and timbre that could only be found around a campfire with a master story teller. They can be riveting - but you must both listen and hear......

WESTERN SHOWS were among of the most fertile of the presentations. They ranged from raunchy and realistic to cute and cuddly. Many of the most popular early television shows were direct adaptations of the best of golden age radio: and they lost something in translation.
    Gunsmoke, The Cisco Kid, Red Ryder, Roy Rogers, The Lone Ranger, Death Valley Days, and many others made a successful transition to the visual media of television. Most lasted less time on the tube than in their original form on the radio.

MUSIC WAS POPULAR during the golden age. It was a bit different than today's radio. It featured live performances of the most popular performers. Vocalists like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Doris Day spoke with the audience: both the radio audience and the live audience that attended these performances. Big bands traveled the nation and their appearances were major radio events. Competition was fierce for the radio audience and the major networks contracted with the performers for "AIR TIME."

WORLD WAR II interrupted the gentle recovery from the great depression. It provided a boom economy of production. It also ushered in rationing of critical war-time commodities. One thing that was not rationed was radio programming. Both commercial radio stations and the various service radio broadcasts exploded with programming for "OUR BOYS." The finest and most popular programming was part of the war effort. We have archived many of these programs and are pleased to present them for your listening pleasure..

Family Programming came into being and was popular for a while before it was usurped by television. As radio matured it began to understand it's audience. Shows and broadcast content became "Family Friendly" and were directed at specific demographic segments of the population. "Time Slots," became important for selling air time to the population of listeners.

The Enduring Classics: Many radio shows gave birth to themes and presentations that persist to this day. Dragnet, The Great Gildersleeve, Gunsmoke, Burns & Allen, Ozzie and Harriet, Superman, Space Patrol, The Shadow, and many more persist in their original conception or in variations in stage, screen, and - sadly - not in radio. We bring you these classics.

 

We bring you programs that engage the ear, soul, and intellect. We preserve the rich heritage that radio ushered in when it was young. Our programs are classic, entertaining, engaging, and most importantly: yours for free.
