Timeless happiness

This podcast is a gorgeous tribute to a medium of storytelling whose golden age has passed. The multiple hosts obviously love this entertainment and it feels great listening to hosts who just love these programs with no ulterior motives. (Make money)
I had no idea of the impact Jack Benny’s show had on comedy. It is the earliest sitcom. It is the foundation of the Looney Tunes cartoons. Rochester’s character as an equal to the others was ahead of its time.
These hosts must have worked hard to produce such great, sound quality. I am forever grateful for your loving efforts.

Cut down the openings

I have enjoyed this podcast for over 12 years. Great collection & good variety. I appreciate the hosts passion & energy. But I cannot understand these long intros that drift about. They are never edited. Once those are finished, the old intros begin. It simply detracts from the content.

Thank you

Just wanted to say thank you for providing absolutely amazing history and classic radio shows. A lost art, seldom respected today. Thank you my good man.
