  1. On the show dedicated to David Rose you read from “David Rose Productions” website. I’m not turning up an official website in my search. Could you share the link please?

  2. Enjoyed the YTJD Marathon. Good episode, better that any movie I’ve seen recently, that’s for sure. Keep them coming.

  3. I Love the “Your’s Truly, Johnny Dollar”. Bob Baily is my favorite Johnny Dollar, He seems to have a bit of Humphrey Bogart talk, the way he says things. Thanks Greg for having these episodes.

  4. A great week of show’s Greg.I can’t get enough of them.I’d like to hear more of Diamond though.The detective’s and western’s are my favorite’s.Keep up the great work!

  5. Can’t get enough Jack Benny. Will the final act of the borrowed Oscar caper be played? I must know how it turns out.

  6. Hi Jim in SD
    Thanks for your feedback on Gerald Mohr. Just wanted to let you know that I saw your response. What did you or anyone think of the Suspense episode called “Headshriker” ??? I was not expecting an ending like that. It made you think about it for a second, didn’t it.

  7. Hi Greg, can’t think you enough for all of the great programs, i really love the Y T J D keep them coming.

  8. Enjoying the programming today. Loved “Can You Top This?”!

    I’ve searched thru the schedule for a couple weeks looking for The Third Man. Have I missed the end of it’s run? I only caught two or three but really enjoyed them.

    Oh, and really enjoyed the Vincent Price birthday marathon, thanks for that!


  9. bajamigo is right, that’s not Dennis James. Who is it? WHY IT’S NONE OTHER THAN DURWARD KIRBY! Announcer for The Garry Moore Show. Greg, you should be ashamed for missing that one.

    1. Thanks for the clarification. As a one person channel, I couldn’t do this without the help of all of you out there.

      1. Durwood Kirby was not happy when Rocky and Bullwinkle had a story line about The Kirwood Derby, a magical hat that made the wearer the smartest person in the world. Kirby’s lawyers told Jay Ward to cease but Ward told them the show could use the publicity.

        While I remember Garry Moore and Durwood Kirby, Kirby’s lasting fame comes from Rocky and Bullwinkle.


      1. Greg: You are correct. The pictured gentleman is Dennis James,
        who was also a successful TV game show host of the 1960s and

  10. Hi Sharon Dee

    Happy Birthday (June 8). I had one a couple weeks ago. I did not find any of the radio stars that Greg pinned up on the website to match June 8.
    I enjoy hearing Gerald Mohr’s laugh. It is very distinct.

    I could not find a birthdate for Joseph Jullian, it only gave the year. Was it listed in the OTR encyclopedia????

    1. Lana: Raymond Chandler, the author who created the character, “Philip Marlowe” shared your enthusiam for Gerald Mohr. Chandler detested earlier radio versions, but loved the Gerald Mohr-starred show, since he projected
      both the humor and strength of Philip Marlowe.

  11. Finally the 6-parter….one of 3 unique YTJD story lines.

    Keep the new ones coming
