    Turn Back The Clock - AFRS - DJ Show - Old and New Versions of Songs - 1960

    Turn Back The Clock - AFRS - DJ Show - Old and New Versions of Songs - 1960

    One of the first DJ music shows featuring a husband and wife team of Andy and Virginia Mansfield in "Turn Back The Clock" broadcast mostly on the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service from 1948-61. It was the first "Music and Talk" radio show. Virginia would play a 1960 popular song and Andy would play an old original version of the same song. It is fun to hear two versions of the same song... often VERY different. The first song is "Dancing in the Dark. (1960/1931). Second song on this track is "Me and My Shadow" (1960/1927). Third song is "Swing Hula" (1960/1916- "Yakahula Hickydula Hula") Fourth Song is "Gee, But I Hate To Go Home Alone" (1960/1923) This track and more in the Playlist "Turn Back The Clock" on this podcast.

    Crime And Peter Chambers - Charles Avon, Druggist - April 13, 1954 - Detective Mystery

    Crime And Peter Chambers - Charles Avon, Druggist - April 13, 1954 - Detective Mystery

    Peter Chambers was a Private Eye... created by author Henry Kane, who also produced the show and wrote the scripts. Chambers was introduced in a novel entitled "A Halo for Nobody" ... written by, guess who? Henry Kane! Chambers worked in NYC and charged $500 per day. He did cooperate with the police, which was unusual in PI series of the time. His best friend was police Lieutenant Louis Parker. The show was on NBC. More Peter Chambers in the "Mystery - Detective -Crime" Playlist.

    Space Patrol - The Space Shark - Dec. 6, 1952 - Juvenile Sci-Fi Adventure Series

    Space Patrol - The Space Shark - Dec. 6, 1952 - Juvenile Sci-Fi Adventure Series

    Space Patrol was unique in that it was on radio and television, so it was one of the few shows that kids could follow in both mediums. Many of the story lines were the same and in fact the same actors who did the TV program, were on the radio. Ed Kemmer as Commander Buzz Corey of the United Planets Space Patrol. Cadet Happy, portrayed by Lyn Osborn as something like a futuristic Robin character from Bat Man. Often used similar lines... "Smokin' rockets, Buzz!" Virgina Hewitt played the female lead as Carol Karlyle, the daughter of an important leader of the United Planets and was in on all the adventures. The show ran from 1950-55.

    The Whistler - Meet Mr. Death - April 23, 1945 - Mystery_Supernatural

    Intro includes background on "The Whistler" series and a brief intro to the episode "Meet Mr. Death"... this is one of the 429 out of 629 episodes that have been found. 200 episodes are missing. Often times old recordings of a show like this are found on 16" transcription records in someone's attic or a storage room of a building where a current or old radio station may have put them... we can only hope that those 200 shows are someday discovered! All episodes past and future will be found in the playlist "The Whistler"

    Bold Venture - Fake American Passports - 1952 - Syndicated Mystery_Adventure

    Bold Venture - Fake American Passports - 1952 - Syndicated Mystery_Adventure

    The Intro of the program gives background on the "Bold Venture" series and why it was such a perfect fit for Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall in 1952-53. There were 78 shows produced with a minimal of recording time as they used a new form of recording media called "magnetic tape" on a reel-to-real recorder. They were able to do an entire years worth of episodes and then leave town for a film contract or vacation. It was all syndicated by ZIV Production Company. Title of this episode "Fake American Passports"... this series is on our "Drama / Adventure" Playlist.

    Fort Laramie - Episode 6 - Shavetail - March 4, 1956 - Western Adventure

    Fort Laramie - Episode 6 - Shavetail - March 4, 1956 - Western Adventure

    "Fort Laramie" starring Raymond Burr, Vic Perrin, and Jack Moyles. Created by Norman Macdonnell, who also created "Gunsmoke," this 1956 series (with 41 episodes) was historically authentic. Track one features a detailed intro to the series, which will only remain on Episode 1 as I slowly add future episodes to the playlist "Fort Laramie"... this track is the 6th episode entitled "Shavetail."
    Listeners should keep in mind that this program is 64 years old and some references to Native Americans in the dialog would not be considered politically correct today, but it was part of the culture of our American history and hopefully we can learn from the past to not make the same mistakes. Background information on this program is from Old Time Radio Researchers Group OTRR.org
