    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 116


    The Mills Brothers kick things off in an opening "Extra" (filler in place of a commercial) by Eddie Hubbard with their fine recording of "I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Baby." Then once again we join the Browsers' in "Trivia Tower" to enjoy more fun challenges concerning the great music of the big bands.

    One especially fun trivia challenge involves the curio song "How Do You Like Your Eggs in the Morning?" which is performed by a crooner, a beautiful movie star, and a popular quartette. Another challenge is a recording with the title "I Can't Believe That You're in Love with Me," performed in curio fashion by a cute TV actress who played a girl named Cricket in a vintage TV detective show and by a comedian/singer who played a Dad in a popular TV series during the 1950's on ABC and in the 1960's on CBS.

    With the song "Baby Face," sung by Jimmy Roselli, we are asked to think of other songs with the word "face" in the title. Maybe you can remember Vic Damone's first hit as you listen to him sing "An Affair to Remember," and perhaps you also can remember how many years "Harbor Lights" was on "Your Hit Parade" as you hear that song as performed by Eddie Howard. And as Doris Day sings "There Will Never Be Another You," you may recall the movie from which that tune came and the singer who sang it in that movie. Do you know what the songs "You and I," performed by Frank Sinatra and Tommy Dorsey, and "Seventy-Six Trombones" have in common?

    Those are just some of the trivia challenges, songs, and performers on this show from January 23, 1999, along with a mystery vocalist on "Phil's Phooler" recording. So as Eddie brings other "Extras" like "The Bunny Hop," "At Last," "The Jersey Bounce," and "No Name Jive" it's yet another great show of "Eddie Hubbard & the Browsers."

    Special thanks once again to Jerry Haendiges Productions for highest quality remastering of the original studio tapes of "Eddie Hubbard & the Browsers" for rebroadcasting.
