Jerry Haendiges'
"Old Time Radio Classics"
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 235


    As Christmas and the New Year come into view with very special memories and dreams from the past it's time for another Classics & Curios tradition, a (slightly edited) reprise of Episode 196, Dreams & Moments to Remember. Songs, of course, often play an important part in making dreams and memories special, and on this edition of Classics & Curios we'll listen to some of those wonderful songs that take us back to some special moments that remain precious — songs that added such unique joy and feeling to our lives long ago and perhaps can do so again as we listen to them now.

    The Four Lads start us on our dream and memory journey with their great "Moments to Remember," and joining the journey are performers like Perry Como, Andy Griffith, the Four Freshmen, the Pied Pipers, Doris Day and Les Brown, and ("pretty") Kitty Kallen.

    Along the way, Woody Herman shares the touching "A Soldier's Dream" (on the battlefield), Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters sing "I Can Dream, Can't I?" from Bing's radio show, and Bob Hope and Shirley Ross do "Thanks for the Memory" from their film "The Big Broadcast of 1938." Other songs include "Graduation Day," "My Dreams Are Getting Better All the Time," "A Dreamer's Holiday," "Dream," "Happy Talk," "When You Wish Upon a Star," and "Precious Memories."

    The Statler Brothers give us a fun memory quiz as they ask, "Do You Remember These?" The Statlers want to know if you recall things like Captain Midnight, Howdy Doody, Dixie Cup tops, sock hops, lemonade stands, white bucks, peddle pushers, fender skirts, Cracker Jack prizes, along with expressions like "He's a real gone cat," and "Only the Shadow knows." If you do remember those, you're about my age -- or a "keenager," as Frankie Laine called us."

    Finally, we end our journey with clips from the Guy Lombardo Show. Guy introduces his brothers and a classic Lombardo medley which here includes the songs "Shine on Harvest Moon," "Button Up Your Overcoat," "I Can't Give You Anything But Love, Baby," "My Gal Sal," and "Everywhere You Go. New Years Eve isn't quite here, but the band performs the Lombardo signature song "Auld Lang Syne."

    Kitty Kallen closes the show to fadeout with a reprise of "Happy Talk" from the broadway musical "South Pacific." Truly 'tis a season of happy talk -- but also a time for making new memories, and for dreaming new dreams.

    German poet Goethe wrote, "Dream no small dreams, for they have no power to move the hearts of men." Remembering C.S. Lewis' words that "You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream," let us dream of a world with hearts transformed by the Christ of Christmas.

    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. Big John’s buddies Stu Chisholm and Greg Barker filled in for an absent Steve, who was involved in a full-time search for work after being let go by the newspaper he had worked at for over 20 years. But now, Steve is back! He is suitably employed now and has the time to co-host the show once again. He says he missed his time away and is very glad to be back on the air. It will take us a while to build our audience back after a 7 year hiatus, so please, tell your friends about “The Glowing Dial”! See you on the radio!
