    Larry and John Gassman's
    "Same Time, Same Station"
    Identical twin brothers, John and Larry Gassman are used to surprising skeptics. Blind since birth, they have been exceeding the expectations of doubting observers all their lives.
    The Gassman's radio careers were launched in 1973, at a small radio station at Rio Hondo College in Whittier. By 1980, they were the sole hosts, producers and engineers of the KPCC-FM radio program, "Same Time, Same Station". The show was devoted to airing vintage radio programs which featured dramas, comedies, variety programs, news broadcasts and documentaries from the 1930's, '40's, and '50's. These original productions were aired in their entirety, uncut and uninterrupted. The show lasted until March of 2000. They then moved their program to KCSN in Northridge, California. In 2002 they both became to busy to continue the broadcast. Rather then to see the show die, Jerry Haendiges offered to "guest" host the show temporarily. After an absence of over 8 years, the Gassman's are happy to now resume "Same Time, Same Station" on my Olde Tyme Radio Network (and I'm really happy to have them back)..

    This Week's Classics & Curios Show:

    "Echoes of Songs and Laughter"

    Episode 211


    On this Eddie Hubbard Special, broadcast on September 7, 1989, the theme is moon music. No, Eddie did not record music from the moon, but he did play some classic moon songs on earth.

    Moon songs include “On Moonlight Bay,” “Moonlight and Roses,” “Carolina Moon,” “Moonlight Serenade,” “Moonlight in Vermont,” “Moonlight Mood,” Moonlight Gambler,” “Fly Me to the Moon,” “Moon Over Miami,” “When the Moon Comes Over the Mountain,” “Moonlight and Shadows,” “Dark Moon,” “The Moon Was Yellow,” and “The Moon Got in My Eyes.”

    Performing moon songs are Doris Day, Frankie Laine, Tony Bennet, Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Gorden Jenkins, Jim Reeves, Eddy Duchin, Kate Smith, Margaret Whiting, Hal Kemp, and Ray Eberle. Gale Storm does “Dark Moon,” a song of lost love, and Lee Evans’ “Yellow Moon” is a rather curio jazz treatment of the moon theme.

    Many thanks go to Jerry Haendiges Productions for expert remastering the original studio tape for rebroadcast. .

    Big John Matthews and Steve "Archive" Urbaniak's
    "The Glowing Dial"
    Big John has been into OTR since his early teens. He met Steve in 1990 and they found that they had similar interests like OTR and things nostalgic. In 1996 they started ”The Glowing Dial” for Yesterday USA and it ran for 5 years there. They had to stop for a few years due to Big John's health. Then in 2003 they started up again and ran for 4 years when, again Big John’s health forced another hiatus. But now, they're back once again, this time hopefully to stay. Unfortunately, Steve is currently in the midst of a job search and so is unable to co-host on the newest batch of shows. We’re sure Steve will come back to the show when his schedule allows. In the meantime, Big John’s buddies Stu Chisholm and Greg Barker have been alternating co-hosting duties. It will take us a while to build our audience back so please, tell your friends about “The Glowing Dial”! See you on the radio!
