MWOTRC - May Meeting Notice

Walden Hughes
 

Hi Everybody,

 

I been ask to host the interview for Richard Williams for this Friday 5-13-22 at 4 PM CA time.  See info below,

 

Walden

 

Hello Everyone,

 

If it seems to you that it’s been a while since our last meeting, you’re right.  There are a couple of times during the year that our meetings are five, rather than four, weeks apart.

But here we go:  Friday, May 13th, SPECIAL STARTING TIME 7:00 P.M.  Zoom meeting (#25) of the MWOTRC.

 

The First Fifteen (which will follow the main presentation this month) will discuss “The March of Time”.  The program that was brought to the air waves by the publishers of Time magazine.

 

The Quiz (“Music, Music, Music x 3, Plus 1”) will challenge your OTR musical knowledge.  As always, it will be presented by our Quiz Mistress, Sally Stephens.

 

The feature presentation this month is a visit with Richard Williams.  Mr. Williams is one of radio’s “Quiz Kids”, from the long running OTR program of the same name.  I had the pleasure of hearing Mr. Williams speak several months back and I am sure you will find his stories about the program and the children on it interesting and entertaining.  My appreciative thanks to Walden Hughes for arranging for Mr. Williams to be with us and for conducting the interview.

 

FYI, if you have a copy of SPERDVAC’s August, 2020, Radiogram, or access to it, take a few minutes and read Jack French’s excellent article on “The Quiz Kids”.

 

On May 1st, The Big Broadcast played The Quiz Kids with our guest Richard Williams (thirteen years old) as a contestant and Fred Allen as the judge.  If you didn’t hear the show that day, you still have time to catch it on-line before our meeting.  It was the last show of the evening.

 

 

Important Note:  This meeting info must NOT be posted to broad social media platforms. That helps to protect us from disruption from "Zoom Bombers".

Bob Merritt checked with Ted on an idea I had. Ted is willing to sell the episodes he's already released to those who join his distribution group. So, if you take him up on this, you would be caught up on the episodes he's already released, and eventually get all the remaining episodes he has (and a whole lot more). I think you'll find - as others have said - there are a lot of gems in his distros. I have been a member of it since October 2018 I think, and have been quite happy with it.

To join his distribution group and inquire about purchasing the already released episodes, contact Ted Davenport at tedotr52@....

I would encourage everyone to join his group.   Please  contact Ted Davenport at tedotr52@....

I look forward to Ted's sets each month. They're full of great stuff and the Mr. Chameleon episodes, of which I only had a couple, have been the most welcome addition to my collection. I truly love those Hummert shows. I've never asked Ted if he had any 'Hearthstone of the Death Squad'... now, that would be a treat. Regardless, the rules that he makes each month around sharing his distros are pretty clear. It would be preferable for our members to support him and respect his wishes, I would think. These distros are a labour of love, but also both expensive and a lot of work.

Is there a complete 'Let's Talk to Lucy' log? I see there's a partial log on Jerry's http://www.otrsite.com/logs/logl1105.htm site, but I was wondering if anyone else had one that was more complete.

Attached is a log for “The Amazing Mr. Malone”. It is primarily from Jerry’s site, but seems to incorporate all existing shows. There are some Partials which I do not have. I see they are on OTRCAT, so they are floating around somewhere.
 
For those who uploaded the series, I have uploaded a better version of Episode 140 “AMM 50.02.26 (140) Appearances Can Be Deceiving (Gene Raymond), if you want to download it:

Well, in reality, that is exactly what would happen. So I’m on Ted’s side. I’ll just stay subscribed and get them 1-2 a month until he runs out.

Just like Jungle Jim. I was so sad when he ran out of those.

But the monthly email to go get the download is just like a Christmas present.

He goes through other cool stuff besides Mr. Chameleon and Fibber McGee.

  • He’s up to 17 episodes of the McCarthy hearings, which are sort of real-life reality-tv.
  • And 29 episodes of Cecil and Sally, the 30’s version of Dharma & Greg.
  • Plus three separate soaps, and assorted episodes of Jack Benny, Fred Allen, Lone Ranger, Superman, etc.
  • By my count, 349 previously uncirculated episodes in 4 and a half years.

Definitely a group worth belonging to.

I have updated my Mr. John J. Malone files. I found 2 (Gene Raymond) files that are NOT in the OTRR Library. I also include the 4 Australian shows, which sound very much like the US produce shows. 

The show originated as "Murder and Mr. Malone", but was quickly changed to "The Amazing Mr Malone". 

The show labeled "47.05.24 (20) The Paul Davis Murder Case" is the same show as" 42.05.24 (20) Mr Morgan, the Cheat".

There are some partial episodes floating around, but I do not have them.
