"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 290


    It’s two for the price of none on this episode which features two Dorseys shows on NBC.

    In the first show, from December 12, 1953, the Dorseys play great tunes from the “Colorful” Cafe Rouge in the New York Statler Hotel (see the Cafe image left).

    Highlighted songs from the Cafe Rouge performance include “Kickin’ the Blues around,” “Ruby,” with Johnny Amoroso on vocal, “Jazz Me Blues,” “Sentmental and Melancholy,” with Lynn Roberts), and “Lovely Weather for Ducks,” the last tune a fun curio with Gordon Polk on vocal.

    For the second show, from June 10, 1953, the Dorseys head to Memphis and feature tunes like ”Hot Tom Alley” (based on “The Mexican Hat Dance”), “How Do You Speak to an Angel,” with Johnny Amoroso on vocal, “Sentimental Baby” (Lynn Roberts), “Muskrat Ramble,” “Ain’t She Sweet” (Gordon Polk), and, finally, the Tommy Dorsey classic “Marie.”

    Of course, Tommy’s theme “Getting Sentimental Over You” alone is always worth the “price” of admission. Besides “Marie,” the Dixieland tunes “Jazz Me Blues” and “Muskrat Ramble” are among the best on the bill. And with Tommy on trombone and Jimmy on sax these sessions are themselves classic -- and all available for purchase in Jerry Haendiges' vast collection. .

    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!
