We learned when we first got in to this hobby in 1970- that generally the networks were the last to know anything about their archives.

Some had material, but most did not.

I can’t tell you how many times we provided good quality material when a radio station called looking for something.

Hi Mike,

 

KNX went to us for audio last year for there 100 birthday.

 

I reach out to KFI and let them know we can provide content for there 100 birthday in 2022.

 

 

KHJ I sent them an email letting them know we can provide content for there 100 birthday in 2022.

Walden, this is really interesting,  I remember listening to The Breakfast Club and Monitor while still in school, and I have quite a few of the 1972 Arthur Godfrey shows on a DVD.

 

I had no idea, however, that there was a six-month run of daytime soaps in the 1970s.  An article like the one I am working on now could probably be written on those.  Do you happen to have the names of the soap operas involved in those runs from the 1970s?  If they were reruns of earlier soap operas perhaps the episodes can be located.  I do not recall ever seeing a radio soap opera with a date as late as 1970, but that may just mean that none of them are available today.

You still had a lot of day time radio going on.  Arthur godfrey was still on the air to 4-30-72.  The breakfast Club up to the end of 1968.  Art Linkletter  House Party was on in to the late 1960s.  How do you count NBC Monitor up to 1975.  Theater five in 1964,  Heart Beat Theater in to 1985.     You had the six month runs of day time soaps in the 1970s includeing Peg Lynch show.     Big John show No school in to 1982 on family radio.  UnShackle started   in 1950 and still on today.

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 those stations.

 

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 article.

 

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.

Thank you Scott.  I just looked at the article using your link, and it really is interesting.  Apparently Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar aired at 6pm on at least some stations.  I think we got it at about 7:30 or 8 where I lived.  It confirms that both YTJD and Suspense aired their final episodes on the same night (September 30, 1962).  I would cite it in the article if it could be sourced beyond its appearance on the OTRCAT website.  Anonymous articles, as I think you would agree, are more problematical to cite than those that can be sourced to a specific newspaper or magazine.

Curtis, that may explain why I can't access the site and also indicate that the owner could be alive and well, which is good news.  I do use wifi but have no idea how to turn it off without possibly losing it altogether and having my computer shut down.  The Internet can be a scary place for people like me who are profoundly clueless about technical issues.

Thank you John and Larry.  I just finished curating a collection of final episodes of old-time radio series, and I also have the last episode of Gunsmoke as June 19, 1961 and Have Gun, Will Travel as November 27, 1960.  I did, however, overlook Suspense and will mention it in the article along with Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar.

Actually, the last two shows to air episodes on September 30, 1962 were Suspense and Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar.

Have Gun, Will Travel left the air in 1960 and Gunsmoke in June of 1961.

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?

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 those stations.

 

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 article.

Phil, I see that all of these logs are from stations that were operating during the old-time radio era.  Some of them probably carried soap operas five days a week for years, and many a housewife was able to say "Goodbye, Blue Monday" while doing the laundry and listening to them.

Thank you Chris!  It is truly a labor of love.  It is interesting to know that Rapid City, South Dakota had three radio stations operating in 1965.  The city I grew up in (Oak Ridge, Tennessee) had a population of about 28,000 and had only one station.

In answer to question 2, KEZU was in Rapid City, South Dakota according to world radio history.com, one of three stations in that town.  KOTA and KRSD are the others.

Thanks for what appears to be a LOT of effort.

Walden, this is really interesting,  I remember listening to The Breakfast Club and Monitor while still in school, and I have quite a few of the 1972 Arthur Godfrey shows on a DVD.

I had no idea, however, that there was a six-month run of daytime soaps in the 1970s.  An article like the one I am working on now could probably be written on those.  Do you happen to have the names of the soap operas involved in those runs from the 1970s?  If they were reruns of earlier soap operas perhaps the episodes can be located.  I do not recall ever seeing a radio soap opera with a date as late as 1970, but that may just mean that none of them are available today.

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 article.

 

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.

Rick,
Thank you for the link, and I would like to read the article.  The link leads to a message that reads "Sorry, OTRCAT.com is currently unavailable."  This is what I have seen for probably a year now when trying to access the site because a remarkably large number of people have posted messages indicating that it is still an active old-time radio dealer.  I think that the owner either died or went out of business without closing the website.  If you were able to read the article using that link, then maybe I have just been blocked from the site for some reason without knowing it.

Larry

Thank you John and Larry.  I just finished curating a collection of final episodes of old-time radio series, and I also have the last episode of Gunsmoke as June 19, 1961 and Have Gun, Will Travel as November 27, 1960.  I did, however, overlook Suspense and will mention it in the article along with Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar.

Actually, the last two shows to air episodes on September 30, 1962 were Suspense and Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar.

Have Gun, Will Travel left the air in 1960 and Gunsmoke in June of 1961.

I only know #1. In addition to Johnny Dollar, Suspense, Have Gun Will Travel, and Gunsmoke all aired their last episodes in 1962.

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?

Thanks for setting me straight on there being only two shows. That was what I originally thought, but I read an article that stated the four shows and I repeated it without checking. Again, my thanks to Larry Gassman.
