  • Old time radio shows

    I love to listen to old time radio shows my favorites are westerns, followed by comedy and cop shows.
    westerns- gunsmoke, the six-shooter, tales of the texas rangers, fort laramie, have gun will travel, hop along cassidy and frontier gentlemen
    cop shows I was a commie for the fbi, this is your fbi, dragnet and yours truly johnny dollar
    comedy Fibber and Mollie, the great gildersleve, Jack Benny, Phil Harris and Stan Freeberg.

    There is a few and there are some others but these really appeal to me.

    You need to stop by sometime. I listen to 20s/30s jazz and blues on this 1933 Silvertone. I have it wired from a cd player and the sound is spectacular . I also listen to the 1934 fight between Max Barr and James J Braddock, the 1934 World Series between the Tigers and the Cardinals. I live in the 1920s/30s.................

    I can remember back on this reincarnation (4th) to 1950. I was two and I remember listening to the Lone Ranger, the Shadow and Death Valley Days on my grandfather's radio.

        Lots of old time radio podcasts can be found on the web. Many are available through iTunes Store for free and you can download or stream. Most are segregated by genre (detectives, mystery, westerns, comedy, variety etc.).

        so much more enjoyable than today’s TV!

        Every Tuesday night after supper my parents would listen to "Yours Truely, Johnny Dollar." We seven children had to clean off the table, do the dishes, haul out the garbage and hold the youngest child while they relaxed for the 15 minutes that the show lasted.

          Been there, done that, great memory to have. Wish I go back and do that again, I wouldn't have a complaint anywhere in my mind.

            Chiefs' Fathers' FIRST Radio only had earphones & he'd sit in the window sill & narrate the Fight between Jack Dempsey & "somebody"??? to the crowd, out keepin' COOL on the porch!
            Chiefs' real first name was DEMPSEY aka POSSUM, but that's another story???
            When I said "sorry" to Chief, about something??? He'd say, "I'm SORRY, too, but, I've lurned to LIVE with IT"!!!---LOL

                DaWizard recommended a very cool app for the Smartphone “clinometer.” Check it out, its free and it really works well! While you are at it, by typing in the “search line” “GPS” several functional GPS apps (free) and some one never knew possible (for a small one time fee) like real time screen are available! I ended up trying “speedometer” and obtained a really cool speedo app for...
