Re: OTRR Curated Collection #2

Larry Maupin
 

Hello Gord,

After I digitized the cassettes of the 22 episodes in the collection I went back and listened to each of them to take notes for the summaries.  I did notice that several were cut off before the ending, but only a few. I re-digitized Gunsmoke because at the end Matt ponders what to do with the rest of his life, making the conclusion essential.  It's a great episode, by the way.

The collection is complete as it stands.  If Paul thinks changes need to be made I will work with him, but I sincerely wish that more members of this group would curate their own collections.  Some have far better technical skills than I have, and I will be happy to work with anyone who wants to give it a try.  The only thing I really do well is write, but that can come in handy if someone else wants to curate a collection and needs help writing the episode summaries and preparing the document to send to Paul.

Thank you Gord for your gracious comments and your always valuable insights.

Larry

Thanks for doing this Larry and Paul. I've been listening to a few of these and have noticed that every ending has been cut off so far. It seems to be only a few minutes worth but of course, I can't really tell.

The episodes I've checked so far are as follows:
I Love Adventure
Have Gun, Will Travel
Gunsmoke
Ghost Corps

I'm pretty sure this was not what was intended so I thought I should let you know. I've been clicking the link and just playing them that way after saving the file. Playing the saved file gives the same result so it is not something going on with the built in player.

Hope this helps,

Gord

Most of these are full length with music included, and quite a few even have commercials.  Thank you to all the members of this group who helped me find the correct final episodes and to get the facts as straight as possible.

If you have a comment after looking everything over, please post it.

Re: Request for Information

Rick, I'm so glad you were able to download all of them.  More dates are available, but some of those are confined to the year and do not have day or month.  That is not too great an obstacle, I think, because the most important issue is the fact that 13 episodes that almost nobody knew existed have now surfaced, and thanks to Barbara we have them!

Thank you for sending them.  Sendspace is usually very reliable.

Thank you Ryan and Pygar.  The information about Senator Murphy is very interesting, but does not refute the assumption that Mary Marlin (and I should have added her husband Joe who preceded her in the U.S. Senate) were the only senators in old-time radio.  

 

This may be a small point, but it does set The Story of Mary Marlin apart from all other OTR soap operas, along with the fact that it is one of only two of them which are principally located in Washington, D.C. 

 

I welcome corrections if anyone can come up with a U.S. senator who played even a minor role in any other OTR series.

Re: Request for Information

Rick,

I have episodes with date designations of 44-00-04 and 44-06-07.  If you will send me yours I will send you mine.  I need all 13 of the "newly discovered" episodes that have been trading for some time among only an elite group of collectors in order to curate a collection of the series.  If any other member of this group has them I would appreciate your sending them to me.  

If I get one of the new ones from Rick (The June 7, 1944 is a great episode but not new) I will still have only 3 of the 13 and will have to abandon the project if no one sends any others by next week.

Thank you Rick, and I will be grateful to receive more of the episodes from any other group member.

There's an audition program called The Fighting Senator who Dave Goldin describes as : 
"The story of Jeff Tyler, State Senator from Oak Falls." He's the enemy of, "political corruption, fighter for good government, the safeguard of a free people." I don't know if this series was ever picked up.

Hi Walden,

Michael posted last night that the senator's name was Claghorn and that he was from the south.  So his name must have been Al Claghorn.  Thank you both for the information.  That brings the total of old-time radio senators to four.

Thank you Ryan and Pygar.  The information about Senator Murphy is very interesting, but does not refute the assumption that Mary Marlin (and I should have added her husband Joe who preceded her in the U.S. Senate) were the only senators in old-time radio.  

 

This may be a small point, but it does set The Story of Mary Marlin apart from all other OTR soap operas, along with the fact that it is one of only two of them which are principally located in Washington, D.C. 

 

I welcome corrections if anyone can come up with a U.S. senator who played even a minor role in any other OTR series.

Re: Request for Information

I think we are up to five with those two additions: Joe and Mary Marlin, Beauregard Claghorn, Senator Ford and Senator Edwards.  Six if you count State Senator Jeff Tyler.  That's enough to form a committee to investigate today's commercial radio, which I read one critic describe as "a place to aggregate buyers who like to listen to commercials."

Thank you Ryan and Pygar.  The information about Senator Murphy is very interesting, but does not refute the assumption that Mary Marlin (and I should have added her husband Joe who preceded her in the U.S. Senate) were the only senators in old-time radio.  

 

This may be a small point, but it does set The Story of Mary Marlin apart from all other OTR soap operas, along with the fact that it is one of only two of them which are principally located in Washington, D.C. 

 

I welcome corrections if anyone can come up with a U.S. senator who played even a minor role in any other OTR series.

 

Larry

Senator Claghorn's first name was Beauregard. I never thought he was a real senator but rather had adopted the title of senator. When once asked what state he represented he had replied the Gulf of Mexico, south of Alabama. If you include him you might want to include Senator Ford on Can You Top This.


There's an audition program called The Fighting Senator who Dave Goldin describes as : 
"The story of Jeff Tyler, State Senator from Oak Falls." He's the enemy of, "political corruption, fighter for good government, the safeguard of a free people." I don't know if this series was ever picked up.

Hi Walden,

Michael posted last night that the senator's name was Claghorn and that he was from the south.  So his name must have been Al Claghorn.  Thank you both for the information.  That brings the total of old-time radio senators to four.

Hi Walden.  Did Kenny play a senator on Fred's radio program?  If so, do you know which state he is supposed to have represented?

 

Thank you,

 

Larry
