As I mentioned in the last posting, I will be at the Friends Of Old-Time Radio Convention at the Ramada Plaza Hotel located at the Newark, New Jersey Airport on Friday, October 21st and Saturday, October 22nd. I will be at the Radio Spirits table from Noon until 4pm or so on Saturday (10/22). Among the scheduled classic radio performers this year are Tommy Cook (Red Ryder); Peg Lynch (The Couple Next Door); Gloria McMillan (Harriet Conklin on Our Miss Brooks); writer George Lefferts (X Minus One) and many more. You can see the link to the details at the top of my webpage http://www.gregbellmedia.com/index.html
We have birthday week tributes for Joan Fontaine (94!); Marsha Hunt (also 94); Robert Hall (The Green Hornet); Bela Lugosi (in new Suspense episode); Barney Phillips (Dragnet); Hy Averback, Berry Kroeger and last but not least, David! Who is David you ask? Why he’s a super RadioClassics fan in Alabama turning 39, so to celebrate the festive day I am playing two “new the channel episodes” from Mr. 39 – Jack Benny.
Speaking of new to the channel; here’s a partial list of new stuff – Let George Do It; Gunsmoke; The Life Of Riley; Mr. & Mrs. North; Nick Carter; Fort Laramie; Wild Bill Hickok; Our Miss Brooks; Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar; Suspense, The Whistler and more.
Also I brought back a World Series themed two-hour block with “The Babe Ruth Story”; Philco Radio Time with Hank Greenberg, Ellery Queen and “The World Series Crime” episode and Jack Benny’s World Series show from 1948.
