My definition of an air check is a station break during which the announcer gives the name, call letters and location of the radio station over which an episode is being broadcast. These are very rare, and looking for OTR episodes that have one is like going on a treasure hunt. I find it exciting to come across one because they give the listener an opportunity to imagine what it would have been like to listen to the episode at that particular time in history on that particular radio station.

There is a way to have some fun with this distro. In the list below, I will give all the information I have about the series, episode title and date of each show but will not reveal the air check. Instead, at the end of each episode description I will place in brackets the time during the program when the air check occurs. So if you see [1:24] or [14:46] you will know the exact minute and second to be on the alert for. If you want to, you can make a list of these 9 shows and the stations over which they were aired, save it and add to it when you happen upon more shows with air checks.

Notes: (1) The file that contains Edith Adams' Future also has We Are Always Young on it. You will need to wait about 10-15 seconds after the Edith Adams episode is finished, then you will hear the air check for We Are Always Young soon thereafter; (2) None of the files contain series or episode titles and dates, so I will list them below in the order in which I will send them out tomorrow and Wednesday. If you find any that do not match up, all you have to do is listen to the episode to learn which one it is. I hope that will not occur, but to err is human.

Now for the list:

1. "Nightmare" from Murder at Midnight (11/4/46). [0:25]

2. "Inditement" from Inditement [0:01]

3. Edith Adams' Future (7/25/41) [14:46]

4. We Are Always Young (7/25/41) [16:32] on same file.

5. "Bob Chester Orchestra" (9/21/39) [26:52]

6. National Barn Dance [1:24]

7. Grand Old Opry [25:53]

8. Counterspy (7/27/42) [0:12]

9. "Switchboard Secrets" from Front Page Drama (11/19/33) [0:26]. Note: The air check here gives only the name of the network, but I think the episode is worth including because almost nobody has ever heard of the network and it will be nice to have a show that was aired over it.

Re: Casebook of Gregory Hood - actor identification

Brian Kavanaugh
 

Thanks everyone. Here's a follow-up question. Nearly every source lists Paul McGrath (Dunning as just one source) as one of the people who played Gregory Hood. They all seem to list the actors in order, which means McGrath was between Jackson Beck and Martin Gabel. However, there aren't a lot of episodes there, and so far I haven't found any indication of when McGrath would have been Gregory Hood. Does anyone have anything indicating when that would have been?

Can anyone help identify the actors playing Gregory Hood and Sandy Taylor in the initial ABC episode? The information I have indicates that it should be Elliott Lewis (articles from then mention Jackson Beck replacing him three episodes after that, but that doesn't mean that's when it actually happened), but I have my doubts - and the cast credits aren't listed at the end. I have no information on who Sandy Taylor would be. Howard McNear was through at least June 1949, but even I can tell that's not him. :)

Re: Casebook of Gregory Hood - actor identification

Karl Schadow
 

Larry is correct in that this ABC series originated from New York. 

There are reviews in both Variety (Octobert 19, 1949) and The Billboard (Ocytober 29, 1949) which cite the following cast (characters added by yours truly):
Jackson Beck (Gregory Hood)
John McGovern (Sanderson Taylor)
Kathleen Cordell (Leora Thorne)
John Griggs (Brad Thorne)
Art Carney (Baker)
Florence Robinson (Florette?)

In the closing segment the crew is credited (also cited in both reviews): Martin Andrews (Director), Frank Cooper (Producer), Jerome B. Boss (writer). Announcer is unknown.

Re: Casebook of Gregory Hood - actor identification

Thanks - that makes sense - especially since there were only four days between the last Mutual episode and the first ABC episode.

If you figure out who Taylor is - or anyone else in the cast for that episode - please let me know.

Hi,

Gregory Hood is definitely Jackson Beck in this episode.

I know the voice of Taylor but do not recall his name.

Elliott Lewis had already come and gone as Gregory Hood in Hollywood.

The episode you speak about was done from New York.

Subject: [OldTimeRadioResearchers] Casebook of Gregory Hood - actor identification

 

Can anyone help identify the actors playing Gregory Hood and Sandy Taylor in the initial ABC episode? The information I have indicates that it should be Elliott Lewis (articles from then mention Jackson Beck replacing him three episodes after that, but that doesn't mean that's when it actually happened), but I have my doubts - and the cast credits aren't listed at the end. I have no information on who Sandy Taylor would be. Howard McNear was through at least June 1949, but even I can tell that's not him. :) 

Here's a link to the episode, "The Carnival of Death", from 10/15/1949: https://u.pcloud.link/publink/show?code=XZFx7GXZtKFr8YXqieLyeNVJjtWlRFNfe3sX

I talk to Larry and he knows the voice is from many shows from the Shadow.  I check Goldin and a name listed on 10-15-49 is Martin Andrews,

Hi,

Gregory Hood is definitely Jackson Beck in this episode.

I know the voice of Taylor but do not recall his name.

Elliott Lewis had already come and gone as Gregory Hood in Hollywood.

The episode you speak about was done from New York.

Re: Black Flame

Here's a visual comparison of the two possible upgrades. To me, the differences between "1" and 11 in the OTRR set are extremely minor, if there at all. Perhaps an audiophile can tell the difference, but I couldn't.

Rick's version of #36, though, has slightly more range to it...maybe. More importantly, though, the OTRR set version has bands where information has been removed entirely. I think this one is a definite upgrade.


Re: Black Flame

Brian Kavanaugh
 

Rick,

You have the same files as are in the set - with possibly one or two sound upgrades. All the others are mislabeled (I listed previously what your number was versus the actual episode, e.g., "3. same as 13"). It doesn't sound like any of the other of the 225 total episodes are currently known to exist. That doesn't mean that more aren't out there in someone's collection somewhere, but with a mostly regional show that doesn't appear to have been very popular with collectors, it is not as likely. Larry did mention they dubbed them for SPERDVAC in the 90s (a donation). So, it is possible there are different recordings, but all - or mostly - from the same original source material.

It does look like the mislabeled episodes have been floating around for a long time. Looking in Otter, I see most if not all of them listed there without any real title attached to them.

So, it appears this is the current state of this series:

1-10: missing
11-13: extant, in OTRR set
14: missing
15: extant, in OTRR set
16-20: missing
21-23: extant, in OTRR set
24-30: missing
31: extant, in OTRR set
32-33: missing
34-43: extant, in OTRR set
44-52: missing
53-56: extant, in OTRR set
57: missing
58-60: extant, in OTRR set
61: missing
62-63: extant, in OTRR set
64-75: missing
76: extant, in OTRR set
77+: missing

Or, to list it a different way,

Extant: 11-13, 15, 21-23, 31, 34-43, 53-56, 58-60, 62-63, 76
Missing: 1-10, 14, 16-20, 24-30, 32-33, 44-52, 57, 61, 64-75, 77+

This was a transcribed series so episode dates would only reflect one particular market. It aired at different times and days in different places. An individual could add dates to their files but the plan now is not to attach dates to this series.

Everything I have came from the OTRR site and archive.org.  For the sake of my accuracy, could the more learned and aware folks here help to correct the files I have?   If I understand correctly there are other sources out there that have more of the same files but possible improvements?  I indicated the ones that were missing in the series with NEED.  Maybe these can be located and that there are others that are missing in reality.   Since per that newspaper article we know the date of a first broadcast as well as the frequency, could we potentially add dates to the files?

Hello Everyone,

 

Let me start out by thanking Jim Pasquale for his extended service as the Club’s VP.  Jim, I’ve “borrowed” the format of your meeting notices.  After all, why not go with what works?

 

Friday evening, January 14, 2022, will be MWOTRC’s Zoom Meeting #21. 


The First Fifteen will be about the program "Federal Agents".  An interesting compilation of stories about federal agents not only in the United States, but from around the world. 

 

The quiz this month is entitled “Hodge Podge and Other Things”, so there is a guarantee that Al Hodge will turn up at least once.

For our main program, the presentation will be:  “Even Orson Welles Had a Problem”.  Wonder what is was?


We look forward to seeing / hearing you all there.  Note that you do not need a computer to join the meeting.  You can join using a cell phone or land line.  Please see instructions below.
