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 282

    A CHRISTMAS VISIT TO "HOLIDAY INN" WITH BING, PERRY, FRANK, GUY, & LONGFELLOW (ENCORE)

    We start this traditional Classics & Curios Christmas show with a musical "visit" to the wonderful 'Holiday Inn" movie of 1942 with Bing and his renditions of "Happy Holidays" and the historic "White Christmas." In celebration of the Christmas holiday, joining Bing for this broadcast "at the Inn" are show guests Guy Lombardo, Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Burl Ives, Tommy Dorsey, and Frank Parker.

    Celebrating Christmas in music is what this show is about, and great tunes like 1935's "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," the very first big band Christmas hit recording and performed by Tommy Dorsey. Guy Lombardo lights up the scene with "An Old Fashioned Christmas Tree" and "He'll be Comin' Down the Chimney." And an army General pays tribute to entertainers like Frank Sinatra for personal and V-disc performances that gave our troops so many moments of joyful relief. After the general's words, we take you directly to a special V-Disc performance of Frank on "Guest Star" with an introduction by announcer Don Wilson.

    Speaking of our troops, an interesting trivia note is that the Fourth of July celebration scene in the "Holiday Inn" movie ended up longer than what was originally planned, that is, with the striking Fred Astaire fire cracker dance. The reason: the attack on Pearl Harbor, which occurred half way through the making of that film.

    A special feature in our celebration is the touching Civil War story about Longfellow's writing of the poem "Christmas Bells" followed by Burl Ives' moving performance of "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day." Some question the story's validity, but people still question the existence of Santa Claus as well!

    Frank Parker's recording of "O Holy Night" reminds us of the real meaning of Christmas, and Perry Como closes the broadcast with his merry reminder that "It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas."

    May all of us, especially our brave troops in harm's way, celebrate Christ's birth in the grace, hope, love, peace, and joy of our risen Lord and Savior! .

    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. Big John’s buddies Stu Chisholm and Greg Barker filled in for an absent Steve, who was involved in a full-time search for work after being let go by the newspaper he had worked at for over 20 years. But now, Steve is back! He is suitably employed now and has the time to co-host the show once again. He says he missed his time away and is very glad to be back on the air. It will take us a while to build our audience back after a 7 year hiatus, so please, tell your friends about “The Glowing Dial”! See you on the radio!
