Thank you Rick.  If any of those are from 1965 I would like to know if you have dates and episode titles for them.

Thank you very much Rick, Brian, Bob, Joe, Randy and John.  All of you are such able and accomplished researchers, and I am grateful that you have responded to my question with such a generous amount of detailed information.

I think that as many as 20-25 episodes of both Big Sister and Pepper Young's Family  from 1965 may now be available.  The most interesting question about them is whether they were newly scripted.  Joe states that he suspects they were re-runs, while Randy writes that the episodes released in 1965 were "newly-recorded, using new scripts with modern, up-to-date situations."  The newspaper article from which Bob quotes states that the 1965 episodes of both serials were being re-made and updated by Modern Drama.

This is important to me because I think that if the 1965 episodes differ substantially from those first aired, that is news that might be of interest to old-time radio enthusiasts, or at least the minority of us who have an affection for soap operas.  If they are different, I might write episode summaries, provide titles, and even submit an article somewhere on the 1965 shows.

Thanks again to all of our scholars who have responded!

Hello Larry. I found a 1965 article stating that not only Big Sister was being remade, but also Pepper Young's Family. The article states, "The...programs are taped in new York by a firm out of Boston, 'Modern Drama.' John Scott MacLellan, who has 25 years' experience in radio drama, updated the old soaps and is syndicating them to radio stations around the country. Vivian Smolen, who plays 'Big Sister,' shed her first radio tears on 'Our Gal Sunday,.' She also played the part of 'Laurel' in 'Stella Dallas.' Arthur Hughes was 'Just Plain Bill' for a decade on radio. Now he will be 'Dr. Carvell' on 'Big Sister.' Among the newcomers to this old trade are Gillian Spencer, Julie Mannix and Peter Fernandez (he's 'Pepper Young')."

A quick look through Newspapers.com (don't have time for more right now) indicates those are two separate shows. It was airing into at least 1967. However, it looks like they both started at least in 1938, if not before.

Jim Cox's book "Radio Crime Fighters" has a brief entry on "Billy Swift." Cox dates the series to 1938 and says that it was syndicated by World Broadcasting for Sunkist. Cox notes that there are two episodes circulating, but he doesn't identify them or cite a source for them. The only other reference I could find to the series confirmed the 1938 date, said that 52 episodes were produced, and that the series was running on eighteen stations in the United States and Canada.

Welcome back to "Joe Hehn Tuesday!"

Mr. Hehn (1931-2020) was a pioneering collector of radio recordings when the hobby emerged in the 1960s. Digitizing his collection of reel tapes and discs has been the effort of a wide range of North American volunteers, and includes assistance of some international collectors. The principal groups supporting this effort with their funds, time, technology and skills are the Old Time Radio Researchers and a small group of transcription disc preservationists who refer to themselves as the "The Knights of the Turning Table."

New material is being added very week to the Joe Hehn Collection on archive.org. We'll try to highlight some of that material on this Facebook page.

Tonight, enjoy something unusual: an episode of The Adventures of Billy Swift, Boy Detective, or feast on an hourlong Fifth War Loan Drive from June 12, 1944. Maybe you’ll want to settle in for some high adventure with the first two episodes of Voyage of the Scarlet Queen. (You should be able to click on the titles).

Whatever your preference, enjoy!

"Pepper Young's Family" and "Big Sister" were revived and released in early 1965 by a Boston company named Modern Drama Productions. Modern Drama emphasized that these shows were newly-recorded, using new scripts with "modern up-to-date" situations. No word on how successful (or unsuccessful) these revivals were, but there were stations still running them in the late 1960s.

New material is being added very week to the Joe Hehn Collection on archive.org. We'll try to highlight some of that material on this Facebook page.

Tonight, enjoy something unusual: an episode of The Adventures of Billy Swift, Boy Detective, or feast on an hourlong Fifth War Loan Drive from June 12, 1944. Maybe you’ll want to settle in for some high adventure with the first two episodes of Voyage of the Scarlet Queen. (You should be able to click on the titles).

Whatever your preference, enjoy!

Ryan,
Wow I got to add another series folder to the library.  I did not have one for Adventures of Billy Swift (gee..Tom Swift rip-off perhaps?....)

Are there any more of that series in anyone's collection here?

Welcome back to "Joe Hehn Tuesday!"

Mr. Hehn (1931-2020) was a pioneering collector of radio recordings when the hobby emerged in the 1960s. Digitizing his collection of reel tapes and discs has been the effort of a wide range of North American volunteers, and includes assistance of some international collectors. The principal groups supporting this effort with their funds, time, technology and skills are the Old Time Radio Researchers and a small group of transcription disc preservationists who refer to themselves as the "The Knights of the Turning Table."

New material is being added very week to the Joe Hehn Collection on archive.org. We'll try to highlight some of that material on this Facebook page.
