Saved From Oblivion – Nightwatch (4/23/14)

29:52 – 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 a program called, Nightwatch.  In the middle to late 1950’s, Nightwatch was a Cops-like radio show, where a man with a tape recorder went out with the Culver City, California police on calls.  The results are sometimes bizarre and other times mundane.

The best part of all, is that you get a window into 1950’s life (usually the seedier side) and you’ll get a view of how “the other half” lived.
