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 342

    CLASSICS & CURIOS TRADITIONAL EASTER SPECIAL

    It's a time of joy as we celebrate our risen Lord on this Classics & Curios Easter Special. So "Turn Your Radio On" and get in touch with God with the Gaither Homecoming Friends; get your Easter bonnet on for the "Easter Parade" with the Lewis Family; attend the 1933 Broadway Revue "As Thousands Cheer;" and hear the first performance of Irving Berlin's "Easter Parade," which Berlin first composed in 1917 as "Smile, and Show Your Dimple."

    Andy Griffith sings "I Love to Tell the Story of Jesus and His Love" and the Gaither Vocal Band performs the rousing "Let Freedom Ring." Finally, our joyful celebration comes to a crescendo with Don Francisco's moving "He's Alive."

    As Don Francisco sings and as the Bible tells us, Jesus is indeed alive today, and we cannot achieve heaven by what we do. But through Christ's sacrificial death on the cross He makes it possible for us to receive forgiveness for having turned from God. Through His resurrection He gives blessed hope and eternal life at the very moment people accept His saving sacrifice and choose to receive Him into their hearts. And that is what Andy Griffith affirms as he sings, "I know 'tis true" and why Christians around the world celebrate Easter Sunday with joy and reverence.

    Christians like Andy "love to tell the story of Jesus and His love," -- just as Swiss theologian Karl Barth and Christian scholar Francis Schaeffer loved to summarize the core of Christian faith in the wonderful words of the hymn, "Jesus Loves Me [This I Know For the Bible Tells Me So]."

    In parts of Eastern Europe over the centuries the standard greeting of "Good Day" was insufficient for believers at Easter, so they would instead exclaim, "He is risen!" It's in that spirit that we celebrate Easter in this episode.

    ******************************************************************

    Some of the above Easter comments are paraphrased from THE CHRISTIAN PROFESSOR IN THE SECULAR UNIVERSITY: SINGING & SOARING ON PATHS OF JOY, pp. 151-152, Xulon Press, Amazon, & Kindle by Duane Keilstrup. Among Easter references also often cited by Barth and Schaefer see especially New Testament passages: Ephesians 2:8-10, John 3:16, Romans 3:23, John 5:24, Hebrews 9:14, and Revelations 3:20>

    Frank Bresee's
    "Golden Days of Radio"
    Frank Bresee August 20th, 1929 - June 5th, 2018

    On a 1939 school field trip, Frank visited KFAC radio station and later that year asked to be on the air. This began Frank’s radio career. 

    In 1941 Frank auditioned for “Red Ryder” radio show and was runner up to his long-time friend, Tommy Cook. This show began in 1942. 

    In 1942 Frank was Alvin on the radio show “Major Hoople” also starring Mel Blanc and Arthur Q. Bryan.  Arthur Q. Bryan was best known as the voice of Elmer Fudd. Arthur became a second father to Frank.  He often drove Frank home after the broadcasts.  In the late 50s, Frank was able to assist Arthur who was losing his sight. After Arthur passed away in 1959, Frank purchased Arthur’s grave marker. 

      After the war, Frank became a regular on the “Billie Burke” Saturday morning radio show.  He worked alongside Marvin Miller.  Frank recalled after the live radio show, Billie would have coffee and pastries ordered from the Brown Derby nearby and personally serve her audience.  

     In the early 1940s Frank began collecting radio items which grew to be one of the most important private radio history collections. As a little boy, he took his wagon, went behind radio stations and retrieved from trash various radio broadcast transcription discs. He also collected radio scripts after attending many of the broadcasts.

      In 1948 Frank spun records for Jim Hawthorne’s radio show in Pasadena, and Frank became a part of Jim TV’s show in 1950.  Frank helped write for the show and create voice tracks for Jim. 

    On August 5, 1949, Frank began the Golden Days of Radio with his large collection of transcription discs.  He played early discs from current radio shows while these shows were broadcasting new shows.

    Several years ago, Frank asked me to keep and transfer his vast collection of Transcription Discs and Tapes. He asked me to to keep his Golden Days of Radio going after he left us. There are a total of 2,749 total episodes. So this will obviously continue on for several years

    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!
