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 207


    Love is the subject for this undated Eddie Hubbard Special featuring super singers like Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, Kitty Kallen, Andy Williams, Nat King Cole, Buddy Clark, Judy Garland, Ella Fitzgerald, Brook Benton, and Dean Martin.

    Some of the songs include “It’s Almost Like Being in Love,” “If I Give My Heart to You,” “But Not for Me,” “You’re Nobody Till Somebody Loves You,” “There Are Such Things,” “Where is the Love?” “If I Loved You,” “When I Fall in Love,” “Let It Be Me,” “Ready to Take a Chance Again,” and “I Don’t Want to Be Hurt Anymore.”

    We may wish for classic love songs like “I Will Always Love You,” “Always,” “Till the End of Time,” “Love Is a Many Splendored Thing,” “Unchained Melody,” “True Love,” and many more, which Eddie plays from time to time, but this Special touches on uncertain aspects of love or perhaps on love that hasn’t quite come to pass or somehow didn’t work out.

    So the songs on the Special only aspire for true classic love -- love that is perhaps best defined in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."

    Eddie plays Harry James’ recording of “Music Makers” to conclude the show.

    Many thanks to Jerry Haendiges Productions for remastering the Eddie Hubbard studio tape for rebroadcast. .

    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!
