A number of fellow researchers have contributed important
background information for the article I intend to submit to Ryan
which will be entitled :"The 1965 Revival of Old-Time Radio." I
have started composing the first draft, and would like to ask the
following questions of our sterling group of scholars, several of
whom will be given credit in the body of the article:
1. Is it now the general consensus that the final year of
old-time radio was 1962, not 1960? If so, do you think any
other series except Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar should be
mentioned as having broadcast their final episode in 1962?
2. Does anyone know where radio station KEZU was located?
3. Brian Kavanaugh writes that there were radio stations in
Glen Falls, New York and Rapid City, South Dakota that aired Big
Sister and Pepper Young's Family in 1965. I
would like to know from Brian or anyone else the call letters of
4. I do not see in my notes the name and call letters and log
of the radio station that aired the two soap operas during the
evening. Will the person who contributed that fact please
resend it, including the time that each program was aired (I
think it was 8:30 and 8:45)?
5. If anyone can locate newspaper logs that show broadcast
times of the other old-time radio programs that were part of the
1965 revival (The Fat Man, Dear Dorothea Dix and Hollywood
Talking) I would like to include those in the
I do think that the logs several members have contributed
will make great visuals in the article. Thanks again to Ryan
Ellett, Randy Watts, Bob Pederson, Jim Jones, Joe Webb, Rick
Davenport and others who have contributed such a wealth of
material to be incorporated into the article.
If you have an answer to any of the above questions, just
post it here or send it to me personally if you would prefer.
