1:41:58 – The action really picks up speed as this juvenile aviation serial finally gets off the ground! Be in on the denouement as Hop brings in the suspects for a final showdown, and find out if you too were smarter than a fifth grader! Does the plot hang together, or do all the show’s writers need to hang separately?

1:47:19 – Join Hop, Tank, Gail Nolan, Bill King and Dave in Kentucky for the “Middle Six” chapters of the Hop Harrigan adventure “The Mystery of the Vanishing Men.” Dave has solved the “Mystery of the Missing Millions,” but is still left wondering why this aviation serial has such trouble getting off the ground!  There’s plenty of interesting propaganda assuring us that “America Needs Flyers,” though, so “Don’t Forget to Listen!”

1:38:04 – Before he defected to WOR in the Big Apple, Jean Shepherd worked at several other radio stations, four of which (WSAI, WCKY, WKRC, WLW) were in the Cincinnati area. During one of these brief bouts of employment, Shep spent a summer in Covington, Kentucky. Dave in Kentucky introduces and comments on four show segments in which Shep in New York talks about Shep in Kentucky. While staying mostly out of the master storyteller’s way, Dave does manage to sneak in one of his own stories near the end. (Show art: WKRC promotional photo, circa 1948.)

1:44:23 – In 1940, Jack Benny treats the regular cast members of his radio show to a four-day vacation in Yosemite National Park, but first they have to drive there in Jack’s vintage 1923 Maxwell.  Easier said than done, and a lot quicker too!  Dave in Kentucky provides the commentary to this four-episode story arc, with Jack, Mary, Rochester, Phil, Dennis and Don providing the laughs.  Still funny after all these years!

1:43:15 – Dave in Kentucky resurrects the subject matter of “Themes Like Old Times #5” in this special crossover episode, which includes the resurrections of:  (1) Mary Lamont, (2) the Dr. Kildare series, and (3) Lew Ayres’ career.

Theme Song, 3rd verse:  “Thought I was stuck in 1933!  1940’s lookin’ good to me!  I made a quantum leap into a time warp!  Won’t never drink no more bathtub gin!  Gee, I hope that Wendell Wilkie wins!  I made a quantum leap into a time warp!  Japs flying sorties in the Pacific!  The nineteen-forties still look terrific!  Ain’t nothing worse than what we just been through!  Ain’t no question what I’m gonna do:  I’ll be a-doin’ that rag, doin’ that Time Warp Rag!”

29:57 – Welcome to another Saved from Oblivion!Jimbo takes you into his own, hand-picked treasures of old-time radio. He tells you just a bit about the episode and then lets the show do the talking.  For brevitiy, each show will last 40 minutes or less.In our world, it’s nothing to see mediation on TV.  Judge Judy, Judge et al… they are everywhere on the tube.

In the 1940’s, shows like this were rare.  But there was one show where this exact thing took place:A.L. Alexander’s Mediation Board.  However, there’s not just one judge here, but a bevy of mediators.  Each has their say.
This episode, in particular, is full of eyebrow-raising sparks, and is kind of shocking for 1943, the year this episode ran.  There appears to be a fight or a row of some sort, where there is silence for a half a minute or so while calm can be restored…

28:00 – Welcome to another Saved from Oblivion!

Jimbo takes you into his own, hand-picked treasures of old-time radio. He tells you just a bit about the episode and then lets the show do the talking.  For brevitiy, each show will last 40 minutes or less.

Today’s show features two short programs.  The first show features Orson Welles, in a show simply known by the sponsor’s name:  Lear.  He gives us his own news commentary of the day (in post-war July 1946) and my bet is that he will surprise you with his passion and charisma, as he reveals his feelings about an African-American veteran who was unjustly abused by the police.

The second program, called Guess What, is much lighter.  It’s an interactive quiz program.  When you play along and try your own hand at the quiz, you will find it’s not so easy.  This show was directed at the late teen and young adult audience.  Were kids in the early 1950’s that much smarter than us, with our internet?
