    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 117


    It's a time of joy as we celebrate our risen Lord on this Classics & Curios Easter Special. So "Turn Your Radio On" and get in touch with God with the Gaither Homecoming Friends; get your Easter bonnet on for the "Easter Parade" with the Lewis Family; attend the 1933 Broadway Revue "As Thousands Cheer;" and hear the first performance of Irving Berlin's "Easter Parade," which Berlin first composed in 1917 as "Smile, and Show Your Dimple."

    Andy Griffith sings "I Love to Tell the Story of Jesus and His Love" and the Gaither Vocal Band performs the rousing "Let Freedom Ring." Finally, our joyful celebration comes to a crescendo with Don Francisco's moving "He's Alive."

    As Don Francisco sings and as the Bible tells us, Jesus is indeed alive today, and we cannot achieve heaven by what we do. But through Christ's sacrificial death on the cross He makes it possible for us to receive forgiveness for having turned from God. Through His resurrection He gives blessed hope and eternal life at the very moment people accept His saving sacrifice and choose to receive Him into their hearts. And that is what Andy Griffith affirms as he sings, "I know 'tis true" and why Christians around the world celebrate Easter Sunday with joy and reverence.

    Christians like Andy "love to tell the story of Jesus and His love," -- just as Swiss theologian Karl Barth and Christian scholar Francis Schaeffer loved to summarize the core of Christian faith in the wonderful words of the hymn, "Jesus Loves Me [This I Know For the Bible Tells Me So]."

    In parts of Eastern Europe over the centuries the standard greeting of "Good Day" was insufficient for believers at Easter, so they would instead exclaim, "He is risen!" It's in that spirit that we celebrate Easter in this episode.


    Some of the above Easter comments are paraphrased from THE CHRISTIAN PROFESSOR IN THE SECULAR UNIVERSITY: SINGING & SOARING ON PATHS OF JOY, pp. 151-152, Xulon Press and Amazon by Duane Keilstrup. Among Easter references also often cited by Barth and Schaefer see especially New Testament passages Ephesians 2:8-10, John 3:16, Romans 3:23, John 5:24, Hebrews 9:14, and Revelations 3:20.
