I've Sennheiser HD680's which are amazing, and expensive, but I also use the Sennheiser HD6xx from Drop.com , which are half the price but damn near as good. ( and for , it's ok if I drop them in the sea OneAudio's Studio 1s are dirt cheap. just lacking that bass edge)

We are working on a small Maintained set for the series A Salute to the Law. In our library, in Hickerson's guide, and on Goldin's site it is called Nick Harris, Detective but if you listen to the shows it is clearly called A Salute to the Law. That is also the name identified in a handful of mentions in the trades. This show ran for an astonishing 19 years beginning in 1923 and left the air in 1942 because Nick Harris died.
We have the following shows:
1934-02-13
1938-07-01
1938-07-08
1938-07-15
1938-07-22
1938-11-06
1939-05-23
1939-05-30
1939-06-27
1939-07-04
1940-03-17
1940-04-07

Goldin suggests 1934-02-20 also exists. In fact, our copy of 1934-02-13 originally had that date but upon listening one can tell it is 1934-02-13.

Anyone have anything to had to this series?

STORY

ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENTS

Story

YESTERDAY USA has been streaming live on the Internet (and satellite radio) since 1983. For almost forty years we have been providing old-time radio programs, along with original documentaries and exclusive celebrity interviews to help preserve past network broadcasting. Historians, scholars, museum curators and other luminaries have been guests. During the coming year we plan to produce a number of documentaries and the costs involved for production require us to launch this Kickstarter. 

 

Documentary #1  THE LIFE AND CAREER OF RONALD COLMAN

With the cooperation of Ronald Colman's daughter, this audio documentary will feature memories and recollections from people who worked with Ronald Colman, including an exclusive interview with Colman's biographer.

Ronald Colman

Documentary #2  THE JACK BENNY RADIO SHOW

This documentary will feature interviews with the script writers of THE JACK BENNY PROGRAM, and children who appeared on the program known as part of the Jack Benny beavers. Hosted by Larry and John Gassman.

 

Documentary #3  A TRIBUTE TO JOAN BENNY

Joan Benny, daughter of Mary Livingstone and Jack Benny, will provide memories and recollections of her father. Not only will be recounting the days when she finished his autobiography and got it published, but she will recount little known stories that she never included in the book.

Jack Benny and Eddie "Rochester" Anderson

Documentary #4  A HISTORY OF THE LONE RANGER

The masked man who rode the plains to combat cattle rustlers, bank robbers, masked bandits and murderers, was assisted by his faithful Indian companion from 1933 to 1954. The radio program aired three days a week and gave multiple generations more than 3,000 thrilling adventures. The history of that popular western program will be a highlight of the year with exclusive interviews with cast members from the radio show, and commentary by historian/author Martin Grams.

Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels as The Lone Ranger and Tonto

Documentary #5  JIMMY STEWART'S RADIO CAREER

Many people know Jimmy Stewart from his motion pictures but few know he had a career on radio. The most popular was a cowboy western known as The Six Shooter, which he played the title lead. This documentary will feature clips from numerous radio broadcasts, commentary from historians and an exclusive interview with his daughter Kelly.

James Stewart and Jean Arthur in MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON

Documentaries, like any production, have overhead, which is why we are asking for your support. We do not sell the documentaries, nor release them commercially. We offer them to the masses for free on our Internet radio station. But financial reimbursement is needed. Please help us keep this momentum going for another year. We hope you continue enjoying the 24-hour programming the radio station will continue to provide in this new year. 

Risks and challenges

No risks except not reaching our goal. We did a similar crowd funding a couple years ago for about the same amount and reached our goal with no problem.

Greetings to all members.  I have put together a distro of OTR series with some of the most popular themes.  Some are classical music, others are ballads, some were written especially for the series, and a couple are sound effects only.  One or two are just voices with immediately recognizable opening lines.  The Aldrich Family is not included, but what OTR fan would not recognize "Henry! Henry Aldrich!!

All members of this group are welcome to sign up for the distro by 2pm tomorrow by replying to this message.  I usually do not respond to requests to sign up, but as soon as I see your message I will add you to the list.  Also, some have asked in the past if there is a charge.  There is not.

To make this fun for everybody, I will send everybody some of the shows tomorrow and the rest on Saturday.  That will give you a chance to listen to the first couple of minutes of each episode and see if you recognize each program by its theme before the show is revealed by the announcer.  Then Sunday I will send everybody a list of the episodes which will reveal the titles of the musical themes.
