Jerry began broadcasting over several Southern California stations from 1969 till 1989. In 1974, with Jim Coontz and Kevin Stern, he started an old time radio club in Los Angeles, The Society To Preserve and Encourage Radio Drama, Variety and Comedy, using the acronym SPERDVAC. In 2002 he offered to Guest host his very close friends, John and Larry Gassman's "Same Time, Same Station" temporarily till they could take it over again. John and Larry are now back and you hear their excellent programs right here every week right here on his Olde Tyme Radio Network. Jerry is continuing on using his original show title of "Old Time Radio Classics."

    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 158


    One of my favorite Philco Radio Hall of Fame shows plays this week. This show features Dick Powell and Ginny Simms with Paul Whiteman and his orchestra. Dick sings “Evalina” from the film “Bloomer Girl,” and Ginny sings “Cuddle Up a Little Closer,” and “In the Still of the Night.” The orchestra performs a medley of “My Wonderful One,” “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers,” “Three o’ Clock in the Morning,” “Rhapsody in Blue,” “Valencia,” and “When Day Is Done,” vocalized beautifully by Sergeant Ginny.

    Dick sings the patriotic “Shipmates Forever” in a tribute to the Navy, and Paul honors Major Meredith Wilson for his service with the AFRS with Meredith’s own compositions of “Yankee Doodle Girl,” “Iowa,” (with Ginny) and “Hit the Leather and Ride.”

    There are some comedy bits along the way, of course, and Jimmy Wallington does his usual expert announcing duties on this show from January 28, 1945, on NBC’s Blue Network.

    Dick Powell revealed remarkable talents early on and even formed his own band by the age of 17. He learned to play several instruments, but his singing caught the attention of Hollywood producers, and later he hit it big in movies like “42nd Street” and “Footlight Parade” in 1933. In the 1940’s he began playing tough hero type characters like Philip Marlow in “Murder, My Sweet.” Then in the 1950’s he concentrated on directing in films and producing on TV. As much as I enjoyed and appreciated his acting, I for one can only imagine how so many additional songs through the years could have been enhanced by Dick’s delightful singing voice. .

    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!
