Re: Need name of song

John Nicholson
 

I know this is weird, but might it be Love Letters in the Sand (written in 1931)? Doesn't sound like Pat Boone or Patsy Cline's versions, but it seems to match if you sing the words to the tune being played.

Need Volunteers for Reels in Florida

David Oxford
 

Hi Members

We’re looking for a few good men!

We’ve been contacted by a gentleman who lives in Florida that has a storage unit with 25,000 reels. He also has a few Reel-to-reel decks he would donate. He wants to offer the reels and decks at no cost.

I no longer have a database with members addresses so I don’t know who might live at a reasonable distance from Orlando. 

If we have members who would possibly be interested in a little road trip adventure, could you contact Ryan Ellett, Joe Webb or myself to discuss this opportunity. We don’t anticipate moving all the reels. The donor has an inventory of the reels (if he can find it). We may be selectively taking boxes of reels. We may be able to hire loading assistance. We're in the preliminary phase of exploring ideas and discussing is it possible to get some of the reels/decks. So, a little adventure for anyone? (You won’t be asked to spend your own money on gas or rental or shipping. You’ll be reimbursed.) You will probably never see such a collection again, ever.

Interested parties should email:

David Oxford deojao@...
Ryan Ellett oldradiotimes@...
Joe Webb drjoewebb@...

Please post any questions in the group as well. I’m sure everyone will be interested in our success or failure.

some basic background from the May 28 1977 Albuquerque Tribune -- looking for more production details -- and hopefully a recording or two...

Looking for information about 1977 radio soap "Nevins of Cedar Grove"

Joe Webb
 

I recently found references to this program, a 4-minute daily soap, that ran in 1977.
Many of the guests of the Friends of Old Time Radio convention seem to have worked on it.
There are also connections to Theater Five that I am researching.
Searches at World Radio History and newspapers.com have not been fruitful.

Does anyone have any information or memories of this series?

Hear OTR newspaper and reporters programs stream starting this weekend

Joe Webb
 

Radio Talking Books Service presents "The Dusty Attic" tribute to newspapers and newspaper reporters of the classic radio era.
 
Dr. Joe Webb hosts this four-week exploration of the role of newspapers in society and their depiction in audio dramas.
 
The first installment is Saturday, January 7, and is repeated on Sunday. Here are the details...
 
Listen to the stream at https://rtbs.org  or with the TuneIn radio service
The weekly "Dusty Attic" program can be heard at 11pm ET on Saturday and repeated again at 10pm ET Sunday.
 
Saturday January 7 11pm / Sunday January 8 10pm
  • The Big Story - Audition show 1946-02-05 Feature Assignment (never aired) - the original plans for the series were a bit different than when The Big Story came to the air in 1947; this is the famous story about a young man sent to prison, framed for a murder to cover up police corruption during Prohibition; he was freed many years later after his mother, who cleaned offices overnight for many years, so she could offer her life savings as a cash reward to someone, anyone, who would finally step forward with the truth
  • Screen Director's Playhouse 1949-12-09 Call Northside 777 starring Jimmy Stewart - Hollywood offers a superb treatment of the very same news story, with Jimmy Stewart's top-notch radio acting skills and a big-budget production
 
Saturday January 14 11pm / Sunday January 15 10pm
  • Night Beat - 1951-06-08 Search for Fred - a case of rabies paralyzes Chicago, with Frank Lovejoy as Randy Stone in one of classic radio's finest series 
  • Big Town - 1939-07-14 Deep Death - Edward G. Robinson covers a tragic story of a mine collapse and its far-reaching implications for the industry
 
Saturday January 21 11pm / Sunday January 22 10pm
  • The Big Story 1950-12-06 Bernard Beckwith, Denver Post reporter, encounters a peculiar carpenter who keeps changing the story of his wife's mysterious death
  • Casey, Crime Photographer 1947-05-08 The Laughing Killer - a former bandleader is out of prison, framed for a murder he didn't commit, the kind of story that always drove Casey to find the truth
 
Saturday January 28 11pm / Sunday January 29 10pm
  • Night Beat - 1952-07-03 The Old Itch - Randy Stone is driven to his wits end by a reporter, played by real-life wife Joan Banks, whom Randy finds attractive and frustrating as a competitor; it's clear that Frank and Joan are having a marvelous time performing in a script expressly written for their talents and their personal affection 
  • Casey, Crime Photographer - 1947-03-20 The Demon Miner - A rejected Shadow script is re-written to become one of the most exciting Casey episodes ever produced.
 
Many thanks to retired reporter Bob Stepno (jheroes.com), professor Matt Nunes, Frank Lovejoy enthusiasts Don Ramlow and Karl Schadow, and many others whose research and encouragement were essential to these presentations.
 
NOTE: RTBS recommends using the TuneIn app, but there may be occasional commercial interruptions when using the smartphone version. There are no commercials using the TuneIn app on Roku and other popular streaming devices.

Re: Episode Identification

Brian Kavanaugh
 

To close the loop on this, Brian Boswell in our Facebook group identified the series/episode as Suspense "Song of the Heart". He also indicated that it is on the short list of OTR episodes he's considering for adaptation for film.

Yes, definitely in one’s best interest to subscribe before March 31st.  That’s a substantial discount for the duration of the project.

Book swap?

Toby Levy
 

Hi,

My son gave me Dunning's "Encyclopedia of Old-Time Radio" for Christmas. I love this book, but I've owned a copy for years. I'd like to trade my extra copy for an OTR reference book that I don't have. Anyone have any books that they would consider swapping with me?

Thanks,
Toby


Re: Bob and Ray - Professional Hide and seek

Joe Webb
 

BNRToast had posted this at archive as well
https://archive.org/details/bobandraybox53side2lsegment3

Interestingly, a few years ago he received a letter from Bob Elliott thanking him for keeping up the search and support of their career by posting many obscure airchecks and such for others to enjoy. He is a supporter of various OTRR restoration efforts and has helped us identify many of the recordings we have been finding in the reels that the group is transferring.
