Sorry about being a little late this week, it’s been quite a busy time with the changes. I hope you have all found us over here on Channel 82 both on Sirius and XM (Yea, just one channel number to say now!)

Wednesday May 11th marks the 65th anniversary of the delivery of the first C.A.R.E. Package and since so many radio folks were involved in the charitable organization we have an original half-hour special airing on the channel. It features my visit with Scott Thigpen, The Director of Media & Advertising For C.A.R.E as well as interviews with some of the original C.A.R.E. package recipients, and a quarter-hour 1948 variety series hosted by Douglas Fairbanks, Jr and featuring Great Gildersleeve actor Harold Peary.

We also have a number of Mother’s Day themed shows beginning on Sunday including a new to the channel soap opera, Ma Perkins starring Virginia Payne. Some prominent birthdays as well including Katharine Hepburn (in Theatre Guild’s “Little Women”), Fred Astaire, Former 60 Minutes Newsman Mike Wallace (He is 93 on May 8th and announced for The Green Hornet & Sky King), John Archer (The Shadow), Forrest Lewis (Meet The Meeks), Mexican-American actress Margo (wife of Eddie Albert) in Suspense’s “Cabin B-13” and more.

  1. Many thanks for scheduling the YTJD at some friendly PST time slots. Sometimes the schedule for YTJD do not even have an decent evening time out here in California.

  2. What is it with YTJD this week, the “Indestructible Mike Matter”. There was not one single Sexy, Sultry, Smokey Voiced “Dame” on there that Johnny fell in love with within 20 minutes.

    Whomever wrote this episode must not have been thinking of how it would be received some 55 years later.

    I could have even taken Virginia Gregg with her great voice, and dreamed a little.

  3. Congratulations, Greg, on safely bringing the good ship “Radio Classics” through another series of changes at XM/Sirius. You’ve handled these many challenges with the grit of GERALD MOORE in “Philip Marlowe”, the humor of DON AMECHE on “The Bickersons”, the calm of Humphrey BOGART in “Bold Venture” and the Midwest common sense of Art VAN HARVEY on “Vic and Sade”.

    We all owe you a debt of gratitude for keeping Radio Classics a going concern. I’ll sign off now, because MARIE WILSON of “My Friend Irma” is impatiently waiting to present her personal heart-felt thanks to you!

  4. Another great week on RadioClassics. I can’t believe that it’s been so long since the first CARE package was sent. What great work this organization has done!

    Just a related thought. For those who may not know, though, members of our military still continue to need “care packages” from home, as many units do not receive even some of the basic comfort items we would consider to be a given (like Marine units in the mountains of Afganistan — without warm blankets). So when considering C.A.R.E. for your support of improving conditions with global health and poverty, please also don’t forget the our troops and give to organizations like “Troop Support USA.”

    1. CARE packages mean a lot to me. When I was in 2nd grade (c.1955) we made CARE packages. We each got a small red/white box for a wash cloth, soap, tooth brush and paste. Off they went to little kids on Europe. This made a very big impression on me and I have supported CARE as an adult.

      When I was in junior high school there was a kid from Austria. His family had lived in Vienna during the period of the Four-Powers occupation after WWII. They civilian population was dependent on the French, Russian, British and American military governments for their daily needs. He said, “The French gave us peas, the Russians gave us potatoes, the British gave us mutton, and the Americans…they gave us everything.”
