June 1st to June 7th, 2014 RadioClassics Show Schedules and Highlights

If you haven’t grabbed it yet, the new weekly schedule can be found by clicking to see Full Story & Pictures and then the following link; ShowSchedules

Wow, we are already into June! Hard to believe. Two major highlights headline the week: the 70th Anniversary of D-Day (The Allied Invasion of Normandy during WWII) and Dean Martin’s birthday (this year featuring some recent comments by his former show biz partner, Jerry Lewis)

Additional birthday tributes for the following folks among others; Rosalind Russell, Tony Curtis, Marilyn Monroe, William Boyd (Hopalong Cassidy), Tom Collins (Frank Race, Chandu) and Walter Tetley (Leroy on The Great Gildersleeve, Julius on The Phil Harris & Alice Faye Show).

We also celebrate the 65th anniversary of the debut of Dragnet with two hours of episodes (four in a row.)

Back to the top to highlights –

To mark D-Day we bring back The Orson Welles Almanac special about that WWII Allied Invasion of Normandy which was on June 6th, 1944.

As to this year’s Dean Martin birthday tribute (Born June 7th, 1917 – December 25, 1995) it features two Martin & Lewis Shows, plus Dean and Jerry’s visit to both The Bob Hope Show and Barry Gray’s Scout About Town. And as I shared earlier, it will include some of the now 88 year old Jerry’s loving comments about his radio and film partner. That interview is courtesy of Turner Classic Movies Film Festival held in Hollywood back in April.

  1. Hi Greg, I hope you can help me. I heard a radio program you played on the morning of June 4, (after 7 a.m. EST) but I can’t remember the exact title, and the Sirius XM schedule doesn’t show it. It was played after Chandu the Magician, and the title had something like ‘xxxxx to Hollywood’. There was a dialogue by a male actor near the end about celebrities. I’d really appreciate it if you could give the name of this program.

  2. Mr. Bell, how wonderful of you to run a weeklong tribute to our Dino on the this anniversary week of his entrance onto our planet. Never was, never will be anyone as cool as the King of Cool….oh, to return to the days when Dino walked the earth. Know that ilovedinomartin this very day is spreadin’ word of your homage of our Dino.
