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 201

    EDDIE HUBBARD & THE BROWSERS: "TRISKAIDEKAPHOBIA" (Reprise)

    More dream and love songs highlight this revisited edition of "The Browsers" from Trivia Tower. Dream songs include "Smoke Dreams" by Benny Goodman and Helen Ward from 1936 and "Wrap Your Trouble in Dreams" by June Cristy and the Johnny Guarnieri Quintette from 1945. June Christy sang with a silky smooth voice on this recording just as she did on many great jazz tunes. The British magazine "The New Statesman" noted she was "one of the finest and most neglected singers of her time." The Browsers ask us for June's real name.

    Far from neglected was one of the most popular singers of the 1950's. This singer was the top-selling female singer of that decade with more than 100 million records sold. One of those huge hit recordings was "Tennessee Waltz," which Eddie includes as an extra on this show to spare us local commercials and to give us a chance to hear the girl known as the "singing rage." You've probably guessed this artist's name: Patti Page, who had 15 gold records and 3 gold albums, including 24 songs in the top 10, with 4 that reached number 1 on the charts. Sadly she passed away on New Years day, 2013. One of her finest achievements was her performance for "Live at Carnegie Hall -- the 50th Anniversary Concert" in 1999 for which she received her first Grammy. She received a "Lifetime Achievement Grammy" posthumously at the Grammy ceremonies in 2013. Her songs serve to remind us of God's joyful blessings in music that include so many vintage popular songs.

    The original aim of the Grammy Awards, at its founding, was "to cultivate a higher standard of popular taste," and that aim often succeeded with many great tunes such as Frank Sinatra's popular award winners. (Comment concerning Grammy Awards of recent years is best left unsaid!). On this Browsers show Frank teams with Harry James to perform a song that would never win a Grammy even though Frank's swinging style on this "Rock" song is good. The song was "Castle Rock," a song Frank wasn't crazy about, but, on the other hand, it certainly was far better than another song he had little fondness for (with good reason): his 1951 curio "Mama Will Bark" with Dagmar.

    Otherwise, some really good songs win the day on this episode, such as Billy Vaughn's 1955 million seller "Melody of Love," "A Fine Romance" by Johnny Mercer and Martha Tilton, Eddy Howard's "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby," "Tea for Two" by the Benny Goodman Quartette, "You Don't Know Me" by Margaret Whiting, "Baubles, Bangles, and Beads" by Count Basie, and "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom Time" by Perez Prado, Concerning the Benny Goodman Quartette, can you name the other 3 amazing musicians in this legendary group?

    Then we come to a novelty tune called, of all things, "Triskaidekaphobia" from 1946 and performed by Les Brown and comic vocalist/saxophone player Butch Stone. The Browsers ask what that title word means, and, of course, to listen to it is to learn the answer. "Phil's Phooler" brings the song "Stormy Weather," and our assignment is to determine who sings it. Other questions include, "What songs have the word "baby" mentioned twice in the title?" Also, "Who sang the song 'A Fine Romance' in the 1937 movie 'Swing Time'?" As Margaret Whiting sings "You Don't Know Me," the last question is, "Can you name 3 male singers who recorded it?"

    The show begins and ends with instrumental recordings -- "Classical Gas" at the start and "Cotton Candy" at the closing, but perhaps, with tongue in cheek, it might have been a bit playful to have been the reverse. Sorry, Eddie, just kidding!

    Thanks go to Jerry Haendiges Productions for highest quality fidelity from Eddie Hubbard's original studio tapes. Again, keep in mind that references to Browsers contact, as to a website, should be ignored.

    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!
