Upcoming Shows on Sirius XM Radio Classics Channel 82

Nov 2nd to Nov 8th Radio Classics

Burt Lancaster Welcome to the first week of November, hope you enjoyed all the Halloween offerings last week and now our return to more traditional programming.

As last week was dominated by horror so understandably my comedy only listeners were a little bummed out. Therefore I ramped up the funny stuff a little more for this week and also lots of westerns; Gunsmoke, Fort Laramie, Have Gun Will Travel, The Six Shooter…

Some great birthday tributes this week including the following: Norman Lloyd’s 100th! And he is still working! (Suspense); Burt Lancaster (Screen Director’s Playhouse’s “The Killers”, Suspense…); Shirley Mitchell (CBS Radio Workshop, Let George Do It, Alice Darling on Fibber McGee & Molly, Leila Ransom on The Great Gildersleeve); Joel McCrea (Two Hours of Tales Of The Texas Rangers); Roy Rogers & Dale Evans (Roy Rogers Show, G.I. Journal, Bob Hope Show); June Havoc (Suspense – Eve aka The Black Angel); Art Carney (The Mysterious Traveler, Gangbusters); Ian Wolfe (Suspense, Escape) and Producer/Director Norman McDonnell (Gunsmoke, Fort Laramie, Philip Marlowe.…)

A couple series anniversaries as well: Dr. Christian’s 77th and The Clock’s 68th.

We also have an Election Day comedy block featuring Gracie Allen’s 1940 mock run for the White House as the presidential candidate heading up the Surprise Party ticket.

Happy Halloween Halloween All Week Long!

This year not only are we jammed pack with Halloween Horror with a sprinkling of Halloween Humor, but I also have some help. Glen Jones of Jonesey’s All Night Truck Stop on Road Dog Trucking Ch. 146 has been kind enough to guest host a couple different two-hour blocks. Known as Highway Horror, it features lots of interstate terror from the following series among others; Inner Sanctum Mysteries, Dark Fantasy, The Whistler, Lights Out and Suspense.

Also this Halloween week; lots of new to the offerings from Quiet Please, The Witch’s Tale, Inner Sanctum, Molle Mystery Theater, Suspense, Jack Carson Show and more. Plus I am bringing back requested standards including Donovan’s Brain, Orson Welles as Dracula, Three Skeleton Key, Fall of the House of Usher, Pit & The Pendulum, Leinengen Vs The Ants, On A Country Road, Sorry Wrong Number, Ghost Hunt, The Thing On The Fourble Board….

And last but not least, I will share with you a special mix of Lights Out – “The Chicken Heart” combined with comedian Bill Cosby’s routine about hearing that terrifying radio show as a kid.

Interviews as First Heard on Sirius XM Radio Classics

As I've mentioned on the air, I frequently have the pleasure of visiting with various radio performers, celebrity fans, authors, etc., who are in some way involved with the Old-Time Radio business, or who are simply just huge fans of the genre.

Now you can listen to those interviews for free, here on my Web site.

Robb Weller Interview - 2010

Robb WellerThis first interview is with Robb Weller, TV producer and nephew of longtime radio and television announcer Art Gilmore, which I conducted in October of 2010, as heard on Sirius XM Radio Classics.

So What Else Have I Been Up To?

My First Audio Books

Recently, I had the distinct pleasure of narrating screenwriter Derek Haas' first two novels, which are taut and suspenseful thrillers about a wily assassin who struggles with his conscience and his past. They were enormous fun to read, even though recording an audio book is a lot harder than it looks (sounds?).

These are gritty, contemporary stories that contain adult content and language, so if you think you might be interested, you can listen to a sample and download them by clicking on the links below. 

"Screenwriter Haas's debut features a darkly compelling narrator. When a young hit man who refers to himself as Columbus learns his next job is to assassinate presidential candidate Abe Mann, Columbus is not taken aback so much by Mann's national prominence as he is by the key role Mann once played in Columbus's past. Soon Columbus realizes that those behind the plot appear to be setting somebody else up as well - himself." - Publisher's Weekly

"Like Jeff Lindsay’s Dexter, Columbus is a thoroughly likable villain. He operates on the wrong side of the law, with his own moral code and his own unique sense of compassion. It’s impossible not to like the guy, even though he explicitly and repeatedly tells us not to, just as it’s impossible not to like the novel itself." - David Pitt at Booklist.

New Audio Dramas

Independent of my work on Radio Classics and When Radio Was, I have been working with some folks who love radio dramas to produce some brand new audio shows, including the top Hollywood screenwriter Derek Haas ("Wanted," "3:10 to Yuma," etc.), whose PopcornFiction.com Web site showcases some of the best short story writing coming out of Hollywood today. (Note: Some of the stories are adult themed, so use discretion as to what you wish to read.)
