I have been getting a lot of emails asking about the 6th annual Radio Spirits sea cruise which is planned for August 2018 as we head to Alaska. While the banner link is not yet prepared for my website, I want to remind you that you can directly head to www.cruisingwithgregbell.com for the details and to secure a cabin.

Ah, the week eclipse has finally arrived, in a fun little tribute to the celestial event RadioClassics at 1pm ET on Monday (the 21st) we’ll present The Shadow “Night Without End” followed by Dark Venture “The Eclipse”.

Onto to the specials and highlights:

We mark the birthday of the US Park Service with a two-hour all new to the channel Jack Benny block. It features four consecutive Jack Benny Program episodes from February of 1940 which finds Jack and the gang taking a trip to Yosemite National Park.

We have two different Ray Bradbury birthday specials (including productions of “Zero Hour”, “Kaleidoscope” “The Screaming Woman” and “To The Future”); plus we mark the 58th anniversary of the 50th State entering the Union (CBS Radio Workshop’s Hawaii themed episode known as “Malahini Magic”).

In addition to Bradbury, other birthday week long tributes include Van Johnson (Suspense); Gene Kelly (Screen Guild Players “For Me and My Gal” and two from Suspense); Alan Reed (Pascuale on Life With Luigi, Shrevie on The Shadow, and of course the voice of Fred Flintstone); Lesley Woods (Margo on The Shadow, Mary on Boston Blackie); Jay Novello (Captain Sabaaya on Rocky Jordan); Jack McCarthy (The Green Hornet) and announcer Ken Carpenter (Bing Crosby Show, The Life Of Riley, The Great Gildersleeve).

And finally there is a series debut anniversary special for Father Knows Best featuring back to back new to the channel episodes of that family sitcom which debuted on radio 68 years ago.
