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.

    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 265


    Continuing the theme of love and seasons, this Eddie Hubbard Special of January 11, 1990, offers a celebration of love in songs relating to all four seasons. Eddie plays great recordings beginning with a winter love song during a frightful snowfall, namely, “Let It Snow” by Vaughn Monroe and featuring the Norton Sisters. What a great recording! This song reminds us that from 1940 to 1954, Vaughn Monroe had close to 70 chart records, including many #1 hits. Three of those songs, “Let It Snow,” “Riders in the Sky,” and “Ballerina,” rank among the all-time top #1 songs, each dominating the Billboard charts for 10 weeks or more. Vaughn was known as a pretty good trumpet player who was blessed with one of the most memorable singing voices in the history of recorded music. His vocal range perhaps could not compare with the likes of Bing Crosby or Perry Como, “Yet, when that baritone hit the stage, it was magic.” (

    Johnny Mercer and Margaret Whiting get together on “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” Jo Stafford does “September in the Rain,” and Mel Torme sings “Autumn in New York.” Engelbert Humperdinck performs “Winter World of Love,” and Eydie Gorme recalls “The Things We Did Last Summer (I’ll Remember All Winter Long).”

    Spring and summer offerings include “The Summer Wind” with versions performed by both Wayne Newton and Frank Sinatra, “Happy Summer Sounds” by Robert Goulet, “Cruising’ Down the River” by Blue Barron, “Spring Is Here” by Carly Simon, and “When the Swallows Come Back to Capistrano” by the Ink Spots.

    One song, “Autumn Leaves” by Nat Cole, had to be deleted because of an audio malfunction, but Eddie tosses in 3 Extras suitable in any season with “Nevertheless” by the Mills Brothers, “I’m a Prisoner of Love” by Perry Como, and the curio “Spanish Flea” by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass.

    Special thanks to Jerry Haendiges Productions for expert restoration of the original 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. 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!
