Added some wall art for my main office.

One is obviously from the '94 movie, the other was just an artist rendering. 

I wish they had done a sequel to the 94 movie, I actually did like it.  I just think it was before it's time, before the craze for that type of movie really took off (that and it probably didn't have that many people that were aware of the Shadow character to begin with, I know I was an odd ball with my age group).

Anyway, I just thought I would share.

I would be remiss if I didn't make sure to point out Richard Davenport's proofreading contributions. Although he gets a credit in the issue, many readers probably overlook it. Microsoft Word formatting gets thrown off so easily, but his proofing of the last two issues has really caught a ton of layout issues that impact readability, not to mention smaller grammatical and spelling errors. 

And to Larry's comments, a reminder that our publication is only as good as the contributions we receive. We are fortunate to have a number of regular contributors who provide wonderful insight to our beloved programs.

Several of our group members who contributed to my article on the 1975-76 revival of dramatic radio are mentioned by name, and as always I am grateful for the generosity of such outstanding researchers as Pete Cavallo, Dr. Joe Webb, Brian Kavanaugh and Kent Schroder.

The article by Martin Grams entitled "Margot Lane: A Character Study" is really good, and makes me want to listen again to all the episodes of The Shadow that he mentions in it.  He places special emphasis on the relationship between Margot and Lamont Cranston, and raises a number of questions about their relationship.  Was she just his "Girl Friday" or a friend, or a sweetheart?  Did they have sex? (Okay, Martin doesn't bring that up, but what fan of the program can help wondering about it?).  There is also a stunningly beautiful full color visual illustration that enhances the appearance of the article.

In "Fugue in C Minor" Denise Noe demonstrates what can be achieved by writing an entire article on one episode, in this case of Suspense.  It is very well written and is supported by abundant research.

These old-time religious programs have not been very popular through the history of the hobby but I suspect it's really a wide-open field for an aspiring researcher to make a big contribution to the field. I can't imagine how many  runs of records and scripts from these old programs are hidden and forgotten in denomination and ministry libraries and individual attics and basements. I attend a Mennonite church and discovered a radio program (I think a drama) done by a Mennonite committee from the late 1940s-early 1950s if I remember correctly. I haven't looked for audio but I know the scripts survive in a denominational building in central Kansas. It's been on my radar for ten years or so to go look at them.

There are some web based options that can be run locally.  Nice thing about that is that it would be cross platform and depending on what codecs your browser has, even niche audio formats may be supported as well (just depends on if you want to deal with node and the web platform).  A lot of them are touted for interviews, so being a scripted audio drama, that may present some challenges when having to deal with sound effects etc.  But that in all honesty, would be the issue with any transcription software as you have found out with YouTube.

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 sent this info to Pete a few days ago, but I don't see it here. It might have been a private correspondence.

Anyway, there lots of listings for Pepper Young's Family and Big Sister in 1965. I even found some listings for them in 1966.

I have attached some sample listings.

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.

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.
