    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 139


    As the big bands continued to give way to singers of the 1940's, fifteen- minute shows featuring singers like Dinah Shore, Jo Stafford, Dick Haymes, Peggy Lee, Bob Crosby, Helen Forrest, Margaret Whiting, Johnny Mercer, and the Andrews Sisters gained ever greater popularity and provided them with an opportunity to allow audiences to get to know them personally.

    One such quarter hour show was the Chesterfield Supper Club, and on this episode we'll hear two shows (without commercials) from this series showcasing Perry Como. Shows featured are from April 3 and 4 of 1946, with the LLoyd Shafer orchestra, Helen Carroll & the Satisfiers (Ted Hanson, Art Lambert, and Bob Lange), and announcer Martin Block.

    Film star Carole Landis is Perry's guest on the first show and reveals a really fine singing voice on the tune "Personality," Johnny Mercer's (along with Johnny Burke's and Jimmy Van Heusen's) super song from the film "The Road to Utopia." Contrasting with her upbeat song is Perry's "Black Moonlight," which brings a bit of unintentional irony in that Perry sang that song of depressing suicidal "darkness that is endless" from Bing Crosby's 1933 film "Too Much Harmony" -- not knowing she would later commit suicide just some four years after her Supper Club appearance.

    Other more positive performances include Perry doing a great version of the song "Shoo Fly Pie," and the Satisfiers singing the curio "Walkie Talkie Baby." The fade-out theme is "All the Things You Are."

    The second show offers a unique feature as Perry broadcasts from a TWA plane flying around 380 mph at some four miles high over New York City on the way to the west coast. Perry's song highlight is the appropriate "Blue Skies." Also fitting for the flight is the Satisfiers' song "California Sunbeam." Jo Stafford is on board to help Perry announce a change in the weekly program schedule for Perry's and Jo's shows on NBC/AFRS. Perry and Jo do a mini-medley, and the Art Van Damme Jazz Quintet closes out the show back on earth with "Sweet Georgia Brown" and "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles" after earlier opening the show with "All Through the Day."


    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!
