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.

Before the dawn of The Overnightscape in 2003, I used to make random recordings in NYC all the time. The idea was to capture interesting audio that I could use in my Internet radio project at the time, Bluffcosm.com.

The “City Cassette” series contains these recordings, one cassette per release. They will not be in chronological order, because I don’t think it matters that much.

This first cassette in the series contains a lot of interesting stuff, including some of my thoughts on the future of Internet radio, lots of sounds from the subway system, a visit to an old place of work, and a whole lot more. A good portion of it is  “ambient sound”, rather than me talking.

Here is how the tape is labeled: Side A: “1/31/01 – 2/14/01 NYC Audio”. Side B: “2/16/01 – 2/22/01 NYC D&A Snow / Subway Crowd”
