    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)..

    "Echoes of Songs and Laughter"

    Episode 147


    Andy Griiffith starts off this Thanksgiving program from the archives by asking you to "Turn Your Radio On" to "get in touch with God and listen to the music in the air." And it's time to give thanks to God in music for some precious things in our lives like sunshine, love, memories, good days, singing songs, old folks, and seeing loved ones at the Thanksgiving table.

    Songs that express our thanks include "Powder Your Face with Sunshine," "It's a Good Day," "I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm," "I Just Love Old People," "I'll Always Be in Love with You," "Put Another Chair at the Table," and "Precious Memories."

    In addition to Andy Griffith, performers who express Thanksgiving praises in song are Evelyn Knight, Peggy Lee, Jake Hess, The Mills Brothers, Les Brown and his Band of Renown, and Fred Waring and his Pennsylvanians.

    I am particularly thankful for The Olde Tyme Radio Network, which makes it possible to bring praises in song to God every Thanksgiving and to share and enjoy His wonderful gift of good music each week.

    Most of all, I am personally thankful for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who enables us to sing and soar in His glory, grace, love, joy, and eternal hope. HAPPY THANKSGIVING! .

    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!
