Thank you to all for the corrections. I think I've adjusted everything properly now.

FYI - the discrepancies were due to the names of the files themselves.

I don't have the knowledge or the time to listen to each of the files and discern these errors.

I rely on our researchers to let me know when there's something that needs fixing.

About once a year, we take the OTRR Purchasing Group's files that were
  - acquired more than 12 months ago and
  - are not yet in the OTRR Library
and transfer them to the OTRR Library.

Here's a report showing which files have been added recently.

Some are upgrades in quality and some are for episodes that did not have any audio files.

One other correction: those shows you have listed under the title PEOPLE NEXT DOOR -- The title of the series is THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR, not PEOPLE NEXT DOOR.

Blondie - 1944-06-26 - 247 - Opens with an Instriumental Tune. Alexander and the Spooks

A couple of notes about this one: The "instrumental tune" that opens the show is "It Ain't Necesssarily So," from PORGY AND BESS. Also, log listings give the title of this one as "Blondie Frightens a Ghost," which is consistent with the show's habit of starting every script title with "Blondie." They didn't start a title with "Dagwood" or "Alexander." It was always "Blondie's Husband" or "Blondie's Son."

<><><>

Blondie - 1945-04-29 - 292 - Dagwood's Extreme Diet

Log listings identify this one as "Blondie's Husband Diets." Likely accurate, for reasons given above. Their script titles always started with "Blondie."

The Richard Diamond episode is an ART recreation. Not certain if it should be in the library but it seems like the recreation should be noted and the date corrected.

Jack Benny Clips, pt. 2

Ryan Ellett
 

I forgot to add, I would suggest steering clear of any bits involving Rochester as without any context, this character is going to be very off-putting to most younger listeners and I don't want us getting any sort of negative consequences by the platform just as we're getting up and running.
Ryan


Jack Benny clips

Ryan Ellett
 

I'm planning to put together a bunch of TikTok videos to schedule for release while I'm on vacation coming up. I'd like to do a few with Jack Benny. I don't have any particular favor bits but would love to have some submitted that we can turn into videos that are then linked to our YouTube page. If you are willing to do this, it would be much appreciated! Please try to be specific about episode and the time stamp so I can go right to the bits you all are suggesting. I don't have time to listen to numerous Benny episodes in their entirety, as much as I'd like to. 1-2 minutes max is the ideal time.

Thank you!
Ryan

Special SUSPENSE event starts Friday June 17 at 10amET on Stay Tuned America

Joe Webb
 

Tomorrow morning, Friday, June 17, 2022 at 10amET, starts the block of 24 Suspense episodes on Stay Tuned America. Voice actor and impressionist Keith Scott and I scripted episode introductions with him and as various Suspense guests. Some will bring a smirk and a chuckle, especially the ones with Orson Welles, Jack Benny, Frank Lovejoy, Ronald Colman, Hans Conried, Howard Duff, and others. There are others where the historical backdrop is a bit serious. All in all, it's a well-rounded collection of some of the series' best episodes.
It's at https://staytunedamerica.net/ which is also accessible through the TuneIn and Audacy apps.
More news about the 80th anniversary events to be announced shortly! Check https://sites.google.com/view/suspense80th/home more events, streaming, and download details.

Re: The Olan Soule Let George Do It Episodes

No,  there was a series of Let George Do It produced starring Olan Soule and aired on Mutual and with a different sponsor.

 

We currently have, “The Ghost of Ireland Betty” in the existing OTRR set (this was a performance of an episode from the original run that was lost.):

There are two others.

Theater Five 58th Anniversary

Joe Webb
 

Tomorrow, June 16, 2022, is the 58th anniversary of the first studio production day of Theater Five. The more we research this series the more fascinating it is. The first production day was for "Hit and Run" by veteran radio writer Robert Cenedella, and has a Whistler-ish conclusion. https://theaterfive.blogspot.com/2022/02/t51-hit-and-run.html
Nick Palmer has been writing fresh plot summaries of each episode, with the four missing episode plotlines handled by outside documentation. It's been a stellar effort. Researcher Karl Schadow has been assisting in finding archives of show documents and newspaper details. Many, many others have supplied us with audio collections for us to sift through and find better copies of T5 episodes... and they are still assisting us as there are reel collections still on their way to us.
The Theater Five story needs to be told and told well. We're getting much closer to doing so. The Theater Five blog posts an upgraded episode every day, and will do so until the last one is done at the end of October.
Resources about the series and the research project are at https://sites.google.com/view/t5-project/home/ Watch the video presentation about the history and backroom meanderings there.
