Re: Ted has a collection of the 1975 shows

Larry Maupin
 

Thank you Walden.  The link you posted in an earlier message shows the four programs that were broadcast in 1975 were The Faces of Love, Author's Studio, The Little Things in Life and To Have N Hold.  I will check Ted's website to find the episodes that he has.  They should definitely provide enough material for an article, and the only thing I would like to know before writing one would be whether other members of this group consider the four series to qualify as old-time radio programs.  CBS Radio Mystery Theater was going strong in 1975 and I think almost everybody thinks of it as an old-time radio series.

If anyone has an opinion about the four series listed above, it would be interesting to know where you stand on the question of whether they should be considered old-time radio programs.

Hi Larry,

 

I was rereading your email.  Ted has at least 40 hours of this series starting on 8-4-75.  That was years ago.  He might have more now.  Take care,

Although not American, the BBC never stopped doing drama. The CBC continued into the 1990's at least, and South Africa and Australia were doing OTR type shows into the 1980's. A treasure trove is out there, waiting to be listened to. More drama, adventure and comedy than anyone could listen to in two lifetimes. And most, if not all of it top quality productions.

Re: good article about the four radio series starting on 8-4-75

Scott Galley
 

Jumping into this late, but we have listened to "The Little Things in Life" twice now. I'd prefer to have the full, hour long package, but these 15 minute segments were shared years ago. A fabulous show, with Margaret Hamilton and Ralph Bell as frequent co-stars. I can't recommend it enough. As for the other segments, I'm sure we'd enjoy them as well.

Thank you Michael.  KNX is the only radio station anyone has mentioned that may have broadcast the final episodes of Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar and Suspense.  I will add it to the article.

I listened to all of these on KNX in Los Angeles. My memory is that YTJD came on at 5PM, Suspense at 5:30, HGWT at 6PM and Gunsmoke at 6:30.

Thank you Scott.  I just looked at the article using your link, and it really is interesting.  Apparently Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar aired at 6pm on at least some stations.  I think we got it at about 7:30 or 8 where I lived.  It confirms that both YTJD and Suspense aired their final episodes on the same night (September 30, 1962).  I would cite it in the article if it could be sourced beyond its appearance on the OTRCAT website.  Anonymous articles, as I think you would agree, are more problematical to cite than those that can be sourced to a specific newspaper or magazine.

Rick,

Thank you for the link, and I would like to read the article.  The link leads to a message that reads "Sorry, OTRCAT.com is currently unavailable."  This is what I have seen for probably a year now when trying to access the site because a remarkably large number of people have posted messages indicating that it is still an active old-time radio dealer.  I think that the owner either died or went out of business without closing the website.  If you were able to read the article using that link, then maybe I have just been blocked from the site for some reason without knowing it.

Actually, the last two shows to air episodes on September 30, 1962 were Suspense and Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar.

Have Gun, Will Travel left the air in 1960 and Gunsmoke in June of 1961.

Re: good article about the four radio series starting on 8-4-75

Ryan Ellett
 

I listened to several episodes of The Faces of Love a couple years ago and it was a good production for a soap opera. It didn't have the ridiculous story dramas that you'd hear in Golden Age soaps but it wasn't a spoof ala Bob   & Ray, etc. If you like soaps it's worth a listen.

Hi Larry,

 

I found a good article Jim  Widner wrote in Radio Recall the on-line article can be found on that club web site at www.mwotrc.com  Jim said the series started on  8-4-75 and was offered by Mutual on WOR from 3 PM to 4 PM.  The four shows national  sponsor was Bristol Myers.  Richard Cox created the series and put it under the title called Radio Playhouse.    The four shows were

 

The Faces of   Love,

 

Author,s Studio,

 

The Little Things    in Life written and starred Peg Lynch,

 

To have N Hold.

 

Many well known radio actors from the Golden days of radio had parts in the four shows plus Yung  actors.

  It ran 26 weeks.

 

Take care,

Walden, this is really interesting,  I remember listening to The Breakfast Club and Monitor while still in school, and I have quite a few of the 1972 Arthur Godfrey shows on a DVD.

 

I had no idea, however, that there was a six-month run of daytime soaps in the 1970s.  An article like the one I am working on now could probably be written on those.  Do you happen to have the names of the soap operas involved in those runs from the 1970s?  If they were reruns of earlier soap operas perhaps the episodes can be located.  I do not recall ever seeing a radio soap opera with a date as late as 1970, but that may just mean that none of them are available today.

We learned when we first got in to this hobby in 1970- that generally the networks were the last to know anything about their archives.

Some had material, but most did not.

I can’t tell you how many times we provided good quality material when a radio station called looking for something.

I reach out to KFI and let them know we can provide content for there 100 birthday in 2022.

 

 

KHJ I sent them an email letting them know we can provide content for there 100 birthday in 2022.

Hi Everybody,

 

Can any one think of a radio broadcast from 1930 to 1937 that cover LA weather and news.  A film company is looking for such a broadcast for an upcoming film special.  Take care,

Walden, this is really interesting,  I remember listening to The Breakfast Club and Monitor while still in school, and I have quite a few of the 1972 Arthur Godfrey shows on a DVD.

 

I had no idea, however, that there was a six-month run of daytime soaps in the 1970s.  An article like the one I am working on now could probably be written on those.  Do you happen to have the names of the soap operas involved in those runs from the 1970s?  If they were reruns of earlier soap operas perhaps the episodes can be located.  I do not recall ever seeing a radio soap opera with a date as late as 1970, but that may just mean that none of them are available today.

You still had a lot of day time radio going on.  Arthur godfrey was still on the air to 4-30-72.  The breakfast Club up to the end of 1968.  Art Linkletter  House Party was on in to the late 1960s.  How do you count NBC Monitor up to 1975.  Theater five in 1964,  Heart Beat Theater in to 1985.     You had the six month runs of day time soaps in the 1970s includeing Peg Lynch show.     Big John show No school in to 1982 on family radio.  UnShackle started   in 1950 and still on today.

A number of fellow researchers have contributed important background information for the article I intend to submit to Ryan which will be entitled :"The 1965 Revival of Old-Time Radio."  I have started composing the first draft, and would like to ask the following questions of our sterling group of scholars, several of whom will be given credit in the body of the article:

 

1. Is it now the general consensus that the final year of old-time radio was 1962, not 1960?  If so, do you think any other series except Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar should be mentioned as having broadcast their final episode in 1962?

 

2. Does anyone know where radio station KEZU was located?

 

3. Brian Kavanaugh writes that there were radio stations in Glen Falls, New York and Rapid City, South Dakota that aired Big Sister and Pepper Young's Family in 1965.  I would like to know from Brian or anyone else the call letters of those stations.

 

4. I do not see in my notes the name and call letters and log of the radio station that aired the two soap operas during the evening.  Will the person who contributed that fact please resend it, including the time that each program was aired (I think it was 8:30 and 8:45)?

 

5. If anyone can locate newspaper logs that show broadcast times of the other old-time radio programs that were part of the 1965 revival (The Fat Man, Dear Dorothea Dix and Hollywood Talking) I would like to include those in the article.

 

I do think that the logs several members have contributed will make great visuals in the article.  Thanks again to Ryan Ellett, Randy Watts, Bob Pederson, Jim Jones, Joe Webb, Rick Davenport and others who have contributed such a wealth of material to be incorporated into the article.

 

If you have an answer to any of the above questions, just post it here or send it to me personally if you would prefer.

I listened to all of these on KNX in Los Angeles. My memory is that YTJD came on at 5PM, Suspense at 5:30, HGWT at 6PM and Gunsmoke at 6:30.

Thank you Scott.  I just looked at the article using your link, and it really is interesting.  Apparently Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar aired at 6pm on at least some stations.  I think we got it at about 7:30 or 8 where I lived.  It confirms that both YTJD and Suspense aired their final episodes on the same night (September 30, 1962).  I would cite it in the article if it could be sourced beyond its appearance on the OTRCAT website.  Anonymous articles, as I think you would agree, are more problematical to cite than those that can be sourced to a specific newspaper or magazine.

Rick,

Thank you for the link, and I would like to read the article.  The link leads to a message that reads "Sorry, OTRCAT.com is currently unavailable."  This is what I have seen for probably a year now when trying to access the site because a remarkably large number of people have posted messages indicating that it is still an active old-time radio dealer.  I think that the owner either died or went out of business without closing the website.  If you were able to read the article using that link, then maybe I have just been blocked from the site for some reason without knowing it.

Thank you John and Larry.  I just finished curating a collection of final episodes of old-time radio series, and I also have the last episode of Gunsmoke as June 19, 1961 and Have Gun, Will Travel as November 27, 1960.  I did, however, overlook Suspense and will mention it in the article along with Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar.

Actually, the last two shows to air episodes on September 30, 1962 were Suspense and Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar.

Have Gun, Will Travel left the air in 1960 and Gunsmoke in June of 1961.
