    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 165


    Here's Part One of Kraft Music Hall on NBC with Al Jolson and featuring shows with ladies of song. The first show is from September 30, 1948, and features Judy Garland. Al sings four songs before introducing Judy. They are typical Jolson melodies: "Is It True What They Say About Dixie," "Red Red Robin," "Poor Butterfly," and "All Alone." Oscar Levant also shares time with Al with repartee and piano virtuosity. A show highlight is Judy's duet with Al on "Pretty Baby" after her "Johnny One Note" solo. The show ends with Al's solo "When I Lost You," leaving us wishing for much more from Judy as the show is a little late and ends abruptly.

    The second show of Part One of "Al and Ladies of Song" features Peggy Lee and is from February 12, 1948. On this show Al introduces Peggy after singing only two songs: "Red, Red Robin" (again) and "Rock-a-By Your Baby With a Dixie Melody." Peggy sings ""Slow Boat to China" and does duets with Al on ""People Will Say We're in Love" and "Birth of the Blues."

    Al's songs also include "Say It Isn't So" and "I Got Lucky in the Rain," both tunes from a 1930's Broadway Musical. The title of that show was also the song title "Lucky in the Rain," and the setting for the show was Paris in 1927. Music was mainly by Jimmy MccHugh, along with Hoagy Carmichael, and others. Additional songs included "A Lovely Way to Spend An Evening," "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," and "Exactly Like You." Again, at the close of this Kraft Music Hall episode Jolson leaves us wanting more songs, this time from the Musical as well as from among the twenty-three number one charted songs he had during his career, more than even Elvis and the Beatles had later in theirs.

    Al used to boast, "You ain't heard nothin' yet!" And upcoming on Classics & Curios there will be more of "Al Jolson and Ladies of Song" on the Kraft Music Hall as Dinah Shore, Doris Day, and Dale Evans put in guest appearances.


    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!
