  1. I miss the Lone Ranger, I hope that you can resolve the legal problems.It was my favorite pregram when I was growing up. I am now 75 years old and grew up with many radio showes. Can you get the Jack Armstrong {the all American boy}shows?I have channel 164 on most of the time.If possible can you play more of the Red Skelton Show, he was Americas Clown. I saw his clown paintings in Branson Mo. years ago and they were great. THANK YOU FOR OLD TIME RADIO. Phil

  2. Can you get the Ozzie and Harriet show? I have always loved them. I found a site where I can listen to them on the internet, but would much rather listen on the radio.

  3. I vote for a location on this website for the celebrity (newer or OTR) interviews and insights…I would love to listen to them all…..

  4. Greg,

    Have you ever had the chance to do an interview with Stacy Keech? He’s been doing the rounds promoting his show on FX and I heard him a couple times on XM 202. He was talking about his father’s Old Time Radio shows. He’d probably be an interesting subject!

    1. BTW, I apologize for the “rerun” post. I always seem to post on the old schedule thread just hours before the new one comes in and trumps it.

      Of course since we are all OTR fans–as Marty McFly’s uncle said in 1955, “what’s a rerun?”

      Happy Friday everyone!

  5. I like to see Dr. Kildare included about every week in the schedules. I would not even mind them being repeated. Some may consider the episodes as soap operas but I think more of them as medical drama since there are different situations and characters for each show and also teaches important life lessons. I was fascinated with the fact that Lionel Barrymore was confined to a wheelchair in his real life. I do not visualize this when I listen to the radio episodes. As for the TV movies, the writers incorporated his situation as being caused by a non-descript cancer when in reality he suffered from arthritis and a hip injury. It is proof that people can overcome disabilities and achieve success.

    Great line-up for the following week. I must say that usually the sound quality is wonderful for the shows aired on Radio Classics. They are nice and clear and do not show their age as being 60+ years old.
