I was born in 67 so radio shows were before my time but I find it ironic that the radios we restore and the old radio shows we listen today would be the same radio and radio show that someone listen to some 70 years ago, that is pretty cool 8) 8) 8)

You are right. I was born in 1945 so as a kid I got to listen to some OTR live. Mostly Jack Benny and Gang Busters, that I can remember. Today I have vintage radios from the 40's that can play my recordings of those vintage shows. The sound of those shows coming through a Zenith console are just great, brings back the whole experience from the days of being a kid. None of the younger generation understand the kick I get out of it, their loss.

Regards,
Don

I was born in '56 the pickin's were slim on any live OTR but there was some broadcast on AFRTS when I was stationed at Wiesbaden Air Base in the mid '70s. Between that and the offerings from some local stations of recorded OTR, each served to pique my interest in it. Thank goodness for Mp3 CD's and DVD's. This would be expensive hobby trying to get the broadcast recordings piecemeal.

I was born in '67 too, but my parents were from the radio show era and spoke about it often. It made me nostalgic for that time. When I listen to those great shows on my old radios it almost feels like I lived in that time. I love the whole idea of audio-only and letting your mind paint the picture. It was an art that involved huge talent and millions and millions of dollars. I feel I'm one who respects it all and wants to keep it alive.

lots of 1944 ers here and I will join the group. I used to love Saturday morning with Hop Along Cassidy, Only the Shadow knows, the Lone Ranger, and the multitude of kids shows on the air then. Now days kids shows are crap and try to teach social justice items instead of entertaining. Bring back Elmer Fudd and his funny acts. I have tried to remember the consul radio I used to listen to as a child but I can not remember it. I was thinking of purchasing one but I am now low on space to fit it in. To many old radios to listen to . Tom
