“you know the jolly show must go on”

radio-9 (35:28) In 2010-11, not knowing what I was doing and having the world’s worst microphone, I haphazardly began recording a series of short podcasts about various aspects of old-time radio. Even to this day, this is not really done anywhere and it’s my belief that someone could have a really popular show (maybe even with sponsors) if they knew what they were doing and would dedicate a few hours a week to such an endeavor. I didn’t play OTR shows back then, I would simply state my opinions about various aspects of OTR. At the time, it was the most popular thing I did online BY FAR – and I did it with absolutely ZERO funds. I remember trying hard to obtain a microphone, but to no avail (I was homeless, then). It wasn’t too long after I began this that I found “Vic and Sade” — which literally changed my life (seriously)!

Anyway, none of the audio here sounds great. I had in mind a 10 minute daily show. Somehow, I ran out of steam early on, despite the fact that I had plenty of faithful listeners and followers right off the bat (plus, I was plugged into a community that was — and still is — eager for this sort of thing).

I just talked about whatever I wanted to talk about in the world of old-time radio. Here are a sample of a few of my shows:

I Hate ‘Herman the Duck’ (Burns and Allen) .. I Don’t Like Mary Livingstone (The Jack Benny Program) .. Gale Gordon (various shows) .. John Gibson (various programs) .. Elliot Lewis (the very funny “Delivery Guy” character, Burns and Allen)
