    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 142


    it's Big Band fun time again with the Browsers from February 20, 1999. We get to match our trivia knowledge of the Big Bands with Browser experts as they challenge each other with such trivia as naming Frances Craig's million sellers, the century that "And The Band Played On" appeared, Claude Thornhill's second biggest hit, bandleader Abe Lymon's real name and the instrument he played, who else besides Vaughn Monroe recorded "There I Go," naming song titles with two words starting with "F," and comparing numbers of recordings made by Frank Sinatra and Jack Leonard with Tommy Dorsey.

    Phil's "Phooler" involves a female singer performing the song "So You're the One." [Hint: She sang with a sisters group!] And geography enters the picture with a challenge to tell the location of Capistrano mentioned in the song "When the Swallows Come Back to Capistrano."

    Tops among recordings on this show for me are two hits from 1941: Guy Lombardo's "And the Band Played On," number 6 on Billboard, and Vaughn Monroe's great "There I Go.," number 16 on Billboard. Close behind are Harry James' "Flatbush Flanagan," Margaret Whiting's "Oh, But I Do," Abe Lymon's "Twist of the Wrist," and Claude Thornhill's "Sunday Kind of Love" with Fran Warren on the vocal.

    To add my own bit of trivia, "And The Band Played On" was featured in films, such as Alfred Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train" in 1951.

    In addition, Eddie plays Extras "Classical Gas," "In the Misty Moonlight," Two o' Clock Jump," "The Glory of Love," and "The Continental."

    All in all, great music and great fun!


    Many thanks to Jerry Haendiges Productions for transferring and expert remastering of original studio tapes for rebroadcast on The Olde Tyme Radio Network.


    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!
