We are doing a research. Is there a friend who can share the WNBC broadcast recording on August 28, 1934? (including Brandenburg Concerto played by Isidore Philipp)

I now have all 39 episodes -- for some the video is better than awful -- but they're fine for research purposes

The only TV episode we have not been able to link with the radio program is "Jubilee Earring" -- still working on it!

Green Hornet

Scott Mahan
 

I’ve been working to update my set of Green Hornet episodes. To which end I’ve been reviewing the contents of the OTTR Library collection at OTRR Library among other sources.

 

I did find a few new-to-me episodes in our Library but I also found what appear to be the following errors:

  • Green Hornet 400313 0426 Parole Plays The Wrong Policy (aka-Michael Parole Board Racket) (2)_OTRRPG.mp3 is really the same episode as Green Hornet 41-08-23 (0518) Paroles for Sale.mp3
  • Green Hornet 41-05-24 (0505) Suicide for a Shake Up (aka-Murder at the Market).mp3 is really the same episode as Green Hornet 400129 0415 A Racketeer Reborn [aka-Fruit Dealers' Protection Racket] (Same Plot As 361015)_OTRRPG.mp3
  • Green Hornet 41-06-14 (0508) Crime Lights the Candle.mp3 is really the same episode as Green Hornet 410621 0509 Man Wanted -- For What_OTRRPG.mp3
  • Green Hornet 42-01-31 (0541) The Number Is Up.mp3 is really the same episode as Green Hornet 420207 0542 Reservoir For Murder_OTRRPG.mp3
  • Green Hornet 42-04-25 (0553) A Friend in Need Makes Trouble.mp3 is really the same episode as Green Hornet 46-02-05 (0741) Washington Story.mp3
  • Green Hornet 42-11-14 (0582) The Double Wears a Mask.mp3 is really the same episode as Green Hornet 421121 0583 Torpedo On Wheels_OTRRPG.mp3
  • Green Hornet 460302 0745 A Question of Time (2)_OTRRPG.mp3 is really the same episode as Green Hornet 39-07-04 (0355) Put It on Ice.mp3, while Green Hornet 49-04-19 (0936) A Matter of Time.mp3 really is the episode of 460302 called “A Question of Time” for which we don’t have another copy.
  • Green Hornet 48-10-28 (0887) Song Racket.mp3 is really the same episode as Green Hornet 39-06-01 (0346) Words And Music (plot repeat of 370121).mp3
  • Green Hornet 49-06-13 (0951) The Ghost Films.mp3 is really the same episode as Green Hornet 39-05-30 (0345) The Ghost Who Talked Too Much.mp3
  • Green Hornet 49-11-29 (0975) The Drug Store Robberies.mp3 is really the same episode as Green Hornet 461013 0777 The Big Mr Corry_OTRRPG.mp3

When in doubt, I used the episode summaries at RadioGold Index to confirm which was the “real” episode but, mostly, it was pretty obvious.

In some cases the misnamed duplicate episodes seem to actually have better sound so they might be worth renaming and keeping instead of the other one.

 

Not wanting to trust my own judgement too far, if there are any Green Hornet fans with time on their hands then I’d appreciate it if a second pair of ears confirmed my assessments.

Jim Jones,

I used to connect to Phil's Place. There were also hubs for comic books and pulp magazines. It's been ages since I've connected to one. How does someone request a user name and password?

Thanks,
Jeff Keil

Hi,

Yes, some hubs are still very active.  I belong to the following 4, "Oldtymeradioman (first hub I joined), OTRhub, PhilsPlace (both OTRhub and Philsplace are owned by "Wildbill") and finally DooDropInn (by far the largest Hub I'm in).  I sign in as KO6BB, and am usually on 24/7 (not right now though) as I collect OTR, OLD Movies, OLD music, OLD comics and so forth and usually have around 66TB in my share.

Well, that's strange, I just checked it and Norton says it's clean.  That web site has been up and totally unmodified since about 2007 and I check it fairly regularly.  Now, I have Norton 360 running here and it's never alerted when I got to my own site (but on a couple occasions has alerted on other sites so that it never let me open them.  Since I've NEVER uploaded anything different to my own web site since around 2007, nor is there any upload links on my site for user to access my site, the only way I could imagine it getting corrupted would be from the host, qsl.net.

The hubs are still going and fairly active. I am on 4. Three are OTR and one is for audiobooks. The main OTR hub is Phil’s Place. Besides OTR the content has expanded to movies, and Audiobooks. I think the OTRR hub is down. I cannot log into it anymore. This is where we use to store our Certified series.

 

On the Whistler, I am working on “Lady in Waiting” and “Lats Curtain Call”. If I can find time, I will try to do more.

 

I too miss Ben and think of him frequently. Ben helped me gather the all the radio logs for my website. This project took several months in which we conferenced daily while working on it. We did logs together and compiled and sorted Harry Nile. We would video chat when I travelled. His travels was limited to his yearly trips to Fla. Ben was a constant companion.

Hi Joe, 

I'll assist as I can as well.  I'll start from the bottom of the list probably on Wednesday.

Can you help us document some Whistler episodes?

The series re-used many titles but they had different storylines. For instance, "Til Death Do Us Part" was used three times for three different stories.

We are in process of completing our Whistler log and need some "extra ears" to review and document certain episodes to identify them as same title / same story or same title / different story. The best way to identify as to whether they are different is by the Whistler's opening narration where he mentions the main character of the story. Please document that main character's name (and perhaps a brief plotline). RadioGoldindex does not always have this precision for such things, but this is the page for The Whistler https://radiogoldin.library.umkc.edu/Home/RadioGoldin_Records?searchString=The%20Whistler&type=Programs&count=555  One of our researchers is a regular submitter of edits to RGI.

These are the ones we need someone to help with, but we just don't have time to address this at this moment without help. These files have been posted at WeTransfer and will be available for the next 7 days https://we.tl/t-icR9gAoXzz  (posted Sept 18, 2022). It's a 1.13GB file with 50 recordings

THANKS VERY MUCH -- Let me know if you will be assisting in the project!
