    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 154

    EDDIE HUBBARD & THE BROWSERS: "THAT SENTIMENTAL SANDWICH"

    Another Browsers show headlines this episode with songs like “That Sentimental Sandwich” by Dorothy Lamour, “All of Me” by Jimmy Dorsey, “7 Lonely Days” by Georgia Gibbs, “Pennsylvania 6-5000” by the New Modernaires, and “I’ll Be Seeing You” by Bing Crosby.

    Top trivia questions include challenges to identify the original Modernaires, to name the “Road” movies made by Bing, Bob, and Dorothy, to come up with names of bands for which Glenn Miller worked as arranger, and to identify Phil’s “Phooler” by identifying the female vocalist who sings “I Don’t Want to Walk Without You.”

    Also, enjoy more of Eddie’s Extras like “That Old Black Magic,” “Midnight in Moscow,” and “Plantation Boogie.”

    Here’s my own trivia question about the Crosby and Hope “Road” movies. There was another such movie planned for the duo in 1977, but Crosby’s death intervened. Can you give the title of the “Road” movie that never was? Well, the title of that film was to be “The Road to the Fountain of Youth.” It would have been the eighth “Road” movie. Here’s still another question: What “Road” movie was the only one the boys made in which they did not pull their patented “patty cake” routine? The answer: “The Road to Utopia.”

    Concerning the Modernaires, here is a little background that could be part of more trivia questions. They began as a trio in 1935, the year of my birth, and later added a fourth singer and sang with the Ozzie Nelson, Fred Waring, and Paul Whiteman bands. They hit the big time when they joined Glenn Miller in 1939. Paula Kelly joined the group in 1941 after which came some of their most well known hits, such as “Moonlight Cocktails”, “Juke Box Saturday Night,” and “Kalamazoo.” Check out more about the originals and the new group at the official web site themodernaires.com. .

    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!
