Eclectic Symmetry #7: Sidewalk Chalk (5/2/14)

1:00:54 – Recorded 4/27/14.

Beautiful Sunday morning
Too much Internet usage on my iPhone
Working on the Vic and Sade Audio Tour
Every episode of Lum and Abner now in my OTR collection
Amos ‘n’ Andy is not offensive
Ages of the kids in The Great Gildersleeve
The longevity of Suspense
Keystone Victrola
A report on the invention of the telephone
A trip to the park
Late Night With Seth Meyers
Going down the slide
Rolling R’s
“Ask me another question!”
Eight letters
Storm front moving in

  1. Other than that annoying wind, I really enjoyed this.

    The content of this, especially the first half, had me listening unusually hard.

    I totally agree with you about Amos and Andy – there’s absolutely nothing at all racist about the show. I dunno how someone like Dave Chappelle basically got away with murder, so to speak, and yet A&A get vilified. There’s something wrong there.

    Also agree about Gildersleeve – a much stronger show when listened to in sequence. (BTW, you must go to WIKI and read up on Tetley and how his mother … well, I’ll let you read it yourself. Shocking!!)

  2. I forgot also to mention how much I am looking forward to the audio tour. Hope you are taking snapshots as well!

  3. Yeah, sorry about the wind. I didn’t realize what effect it was having when I recorded it. Didn’t want to scrap the episode just because of that. ๐Ÿ™

    I’m enjoying Saved From Oblivion, Jimbo. Lots of rare stuff there, very enjoyable. Keep up the great work!

    And yeah, I have been taking pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚
