Hi Joe, 

I'll assist as I can as well.  I'll start from the bottom of the list probably on Wednesday.

Subject: [OldTimeRadioResearchers] Your help needed with some Whistler radio documentation


Can you help us document some Whistler episodes?

The series re-used many titles but they had different storylines. For instance, "Til Death Do Us Part" was used three times for three different stories.

We are in process of completing our Whistler log and need some "extra ears" to review and document certain episodes to identify them as same title / same story or same title / different story. The best way to identify as to whether they are different is by the Whistler's opening narration where he mentions the main character of the story. Please document that main character's name (and perhaps a brief plotline). RadioGoldindex does not always have this precision for such things, but this is the page for The Whistler  One of our researchers is a regular submitter of edits to RGI.

These are the ones we need someone to help with, but we just don't have time to address this at this moment without help. These files have been posted at WeTransfer and will be available for the next 7 days  (posted Sept 18, 2022). It's a 1.13GB file with 50 recordings

THANKS VERY MUCH -- Let me know if you will be assisting in the project!
