Thanks Richard,

I found a better quality batch at archive.org. The ones I have are all rather poor quality. I’ll let you know if I need any others to fill in.

Here is what I have of Life With Luigi.  If you have anything I need or if I can fill slots for you please let me know.  I just checked and most of mine are 32 or better on the bitrate.

Good info, Kathy. I've started listening through the episodes up on our library and have been very satisfied with the quality so far, but that doesn't mean there won't be lousy ones in there. I've gotten through March 1949 so far is all.

Ryan,

Looks like I have about 68 of the Life of Luigi shows. They appear to be from otr cat.  The file sizes are small and the sound on them is mostly poor, so I don't think these Luigi shows will be of the quality we'd like for an OTRR set. 

I'm attaching a list of the shows included on my CD, just in case some might be useful, but I doubt it.

McFarland Press has some great OTR-related books but they are also more expensive as their main audience is libraries. Got an email that they are "offering 40% off ALL titles about popular culture through May 17 with coupon code POP40." Check them out, you can surely find something you like, especially at almost half off. (I have a couple you could pick up!). https://mcfarlandbooks.com

Re: RARE EPISODES OF 5 OLD-TIME RADIO SOAP OPERAS #poll

I agree Larry. One Drive, Google or Dropbox both have free space available. If you have a Office 365 account, you get a terrabyte for free. No sense spending time and money on mailing them.

If it an issue and you don't have enough space, I can easily do it for you for a while using my account.

Save the money.  Just use one of those file uploading services that have free access on the web.  All you need is an email.  You upload the files and then the recipient gets a link to grab the files.

A new poll has been created:

This poll is for members who enjoy listening to old-time radio soap operas.  Yesterday I posted an article to this group mentioning that I have five episodes of old-time radio soap operas on cassette tapes that are not in the OTRR Library collection at this time,  Wednesday I posted it to the Purchasing Group.  So far only one person has replied indicating that he would like to be able to listen to these episodes.  So I am creating this poll to see if there are any other members who would like to have them available. I am giving a choice for each of the five below.  Please vote for the one that you would most like to hear.  I plan to have these digitized and placed on thumb drives as soon as a business in my neighborhood is allowed to reopen by our governor here in Ohio.  Then, depending upon the cost of s thumb drive and the number of members who respond to this poll, I may mail a drive to everyone who responds to this poll.  So happy voting!

Good info, Kathy. I've started listening through the episodes up on our library and have been very satisfied with the quality so far, but that doesn't mean there won't be lousy ones in there. I've gotten through March 1949 so far is all.

Ryan,

Looks like I have about 68 of the Life of Luigi shows. They appear to be from otr cat.  The file sizes are small and the sound on them is mostly poor, so I don't think these Luigi shows will be of the quality we'd like for an OTRR set. 

I'm attaching a list of the shows included on my CD, just in case some might be useful, but I doubt it.

Looking through the list of Certified and Maintained sets I don't see any indication that either Life of Riley or Life With Luigi have ever been put out by the OTRR. Does this sound right? Those are both very popular series with a manageable number of episodes. I'm surprised they haven't been compiled. Does anyone remember doing any initial work toward either set? They might need to go on out to-do list down the road.

I hope to have all five episodes, which are now on cassette tapes, digitized by the end of May by a local business.  If you would like for me to mail them to you on a thumb drive, please send me your mailing address.  Also, let me know if you have or can obtain a cassette tape player in case I cannot get them digitized and need to send you copies of the episodes on a cassette.

Best regards, and thank you very much to everyone who has voted in the poll.

Agreed.
I have a few sets and have not had time to pick the best audio sound with regard to bit rate.
If you add the set, we can take a look and perhaps get a handle on this series.

Re: FW: Rare Episodes of Old-Time Radio Soap Operas

Larry Maupin
 

Thank you very much Barbara for your kind words.  I wrote this article with Radiogram specifically in mind because of its subject matter.  But I submitted it twice to radiogram@... and never received so much as an acknowledgement that it was received.  So unless you can detect an error in the email address I used, I assume that the editor must have just deleted it without even reading it.

As for your first message, just sending it to one of the OTRR librarians is not as easy as it may seem.  I have to have it digitized first, and then they have to get around to uploading it.  So I am planning to send a thumb drive with the five episodes on it to everyone who provides me with a mailing address, and if I can't get it digitized I'll just send tapes to everyone who lets me know that he or she has a cassette tape player.

By the way, I have no plans to publish this article anywhere else, so if you think it would be good to have it in Radiogram please give me your advice on how to proceed and I will make another attempt.  I will also copy you on all correspondence I may have with the editor.

Best regards,

Larry

This is an article I have recently completed.  Here is a little background.  Several Years ago I borrowed some cassettes taken from Reel G-763 of the SPERDVAC General Library Catalog containing five soap operas among other programs.  That is probably all the introduction necessary to the study itself, which begins now:  


RARE EPISODES OF OLD-TIME RADIO SOAP OPERAS

Reel G-763 of the SPERDVAC General Catalog is entitled SPERDVAC OTR SPECIAL and includes episodes of Just Plain Bill, Against the Storm, The Guiding Light, and Midstream.  There is also an uncataloged episode of  The Brighter Day on that reel.

What is interesting about the reel is that most of the soap opera episodes on it do not yet appear to be in general circulation even at this date.  I have perused the Old Time Radio Researchers Library collection to determine if any of these episodes are included among its roughly 86,000 and have ruled out to my complete satisfaction  those of The Brighter Day, Midstream, Just Plain Bill and The Guiding Light.  It would be nice to see these made more widely available to the general public. 

I did find an episode of Just Plain Bill in the OTRR Library collection that is dated only 1946 (no month or day) and was possibly the next one aired after the one titled "Basket of Fruit" on SPERDVAC Reel 763.  It continues the same story line, and helps us narrow the year down to 1946.  I have heard The Guiding Light episode titled "Dinner With Martin Kane" and there is not one by that name in the OTRR Library collection. The Guiding Light has only two untitled episodes in the collection, and I have listened to them and neither of them could conceivably be entitled "Dinner With Martin Kane."  As for Against the Storm, I think it probably is not in the OTRR Library collection because no episode there is titled "Siri Has Lunch With Philip." 

Here are my conclusions.  The episode of The Brighter Day on Reel 763 is not in general circulation at this time.  The episode of Midstream may be more widely circulated but is definitely not in the OTRR Library collection at this time.  I have stated my conclusion about the AGAINST THE STORM episode above.  As for Just Plain Bill and The Guiding Light, their surviving episodes are so widely available that the ones on Reel 763 can possibly be found elsewhere.

As for the episodes themselves, each reflects the overarching themes, the principle characters, the values and the dramatic orientation of the series to which it belongs.  

The episode of The Brighter Day is a good example.  It is not titled because although it is in the SPERDVAC Library collection it is not listed in the catalog.  In my notes I have given it a title of "Stirrings of Spring."  This serial is values-oriented and emphasizes matters of the home and hearth more than the more melodramatic and action-oriented soap operas like Stella Dallas.  The Reverend Richard Dennis, a widower, struggles to provide for his five children on the meager salary that his small but devout congregation can provide him.  The episode broadcast on KLON-FM in Long Beach, California on July 4, 1980 centers on fifteen-year-old Patsy Dennis, whom we find washing her hair one evening, is studious, and considers herself one who is inclined to lead an intellectual life.  But she has learned that Otis J. Hopkins plans to ask her to the prom, which is stirring some romantic thoughts within her.  She interprets the night sounds of frogs and insects as "all mating calls."  Here are a couple of notes that might be of interest: (1) The price of a prom ticket circa 1946 was $2.75; (2) Patsy's brother Grayling is on a bowling team.

Just Plain Bill was named for Bill Davidson, the Barber of Hartville who dispensed haircuts, common sense and sympathy to a generation of the small town's residents.  While some surviving episodes of this serial are character-driven, the majority are steeped in mayhem as one plot line after another finds Bill or his daughter Nancy under attack by an assortment of deranged wrongdoers.  One is even a forerunner of today's mass murderers.  He steals some weaponry and sets about single-handedly trying to eliminate Hartville's entire population.  In the episode on Reel G-763, Bill has been seriously injured at the boat dock by a blow on the head by someone who thinks he may have witnessed the deliberate drowning of Evelyn Groves a few minutes earlier.  Then Judith Seymour, who may have murdered Evelyn over an inheritance, tries to poison Bill by leaving a basket of fruit at his home. 

There are only three surviving episodes of Midstream, but they are remarkable for the wealth of detail they provide about everyday life in 1939 and are rich in social and cultural history.  One of them, in my opinion the best of the three, is not in the OTRR Library collection.  All of them deal with an emotional affair between beautiful Midge Conway, who is unhappily married, and architect Timothy Storey.  One of them was broadcast December 1, 1939 over WMAQ-Chicago and is listed in the SPERDVAC General Catalog on Reel 300.  While her husband Alan is out of town on business, Midge leaves her young son with Alan's parents early one morning and goes horseback riding with Timothy "on a woodland path in the outskirts of the city."  Then they decide to have breakfast  ("eggs, bacon, jam and coffee') at a tavern they come upon at the top of a hill.  While the meal is being prepared they notice an electric player piano and discover that it plays only waltzes.  Timothy puts in a nickel and they dance to "The Beautiful Blue Danube."  Unable to stop themselves, they break into exclamations of love for each other.  The OTR soap opera that dealt most explicitly with outright adultery was The Guiding Light, but this one is clearly headed in that direction.  This episode would make a very nice addition to the two that are presently in the OTRR Library. 

The episode of The Guiding Light on Reel 763 has a remote but fascinating connection with the very roots of the program.  In the early years of the serial the Reverend John Rutledge was the pastor of "the Little Church of Five Points" (Jim Cox, The Great Radio Soap Operas, p.64).  He adopted an orphan named Ned who subsequently married the pastor's daughter Mary.  In the "Dinner With Martin Kane" episode a woman named Myrna who has recently been divorced from Ned is at a restaurant with her employer, who is in love with her.  Myrna has her own radio program on a Los Angeles station, does not love Martin, is very unhappy, and wonders whether she should move back East to seek a better life.  I think The Guiding Light is probably the best long-running old-time radio soap opera in terms of its unflinching willingness to confront controversial and serious issues head on.  It deals with alcohol abuse, mental illness, spousal abuse, adoption and child-rearing, and adultery. 

The acclaimed radio soap opera Against the Storm is set against the background of World War II.  In the episode aired on Friday, March 22, 1940 Professor Jason McKinley Adams, patriarch of the family, is sitting in the garden reading Plato's Republic.  Then Siri, his daughter who is in college, comes outside and tells him she is on her way to have lunch with Philip Cameron, who is her brother-in-law and Professor Adams' son-in-law.  Philip bemoans his unhappy marriage to her sister Christy, and she refuses to side with him or give him sympathy.  Unfortunately, his misery does detract from her enjoyment of the "baked Alaska" she has been devouring.  Note: There is a wonderful piece of internal evidence in this episode that helps date it.  In the middle, a promotion is given for a new radio program called Truth or Consequences that is to debut "tomorrow night" on NBC.  March 23, 1940 is on a Saturday and John Dunning (On the Air, p.682) confirms that to have been the radio program's initial broadcast date.  If prior attempts to date precisely episodes of Against the Storm have proven difficult, this may help in dating them as well.

Ryan,

I'll see if I can dig out my CDs and see what I have, if the CDs are good.  I'd gotten them from a different group than Otree but don't recall which one.  My dad was still living at the time, and remembered the show from his youth, so I went looking for them.

I'll let you know if I find anything useful.

Henry and Kathy, 
I agree, Life With Luigi would be a popular series to work on. Maybe one place to start would be comparing the shows you have with what is currently in the OTRR library (otrrlibrary.org). I have a few shows from other sources but that is often where I start when pulling shows for a set. 

Kathy, I wonder if OTree did a set years and years ago (you probably remember that distro group!). I had a lot of their stuff; unfortunately I ditched all my CDs about 5 years ago so all the material I had when I got into the hobby is gone.

Those are both very popular series with a manageable number of episodes. I'm surprised they haven't been compiled. Does anyone remember doing any initial work toward either set?

Larry, I am at 6514 Ravendale Lane, Dallas, Texas 75214.  If you want to save costs, just upload them to me.  I use transfer now.  See link below.  It is free up to a certain size of file (4gb I believe).  Thanks for doing this.  I have a massive library that I am gradually working thru.

Hello Richard.  Thank you for your kind words.  Please send me your mailing address and I will get them to you as soon as possible.  Also, in case I can't get them digitized locally, let me know if you have a cassette tape player.
