    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 319


    This Eddie Hubbard Encore 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, Buddy Clark, 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.


    Frank Bresee's
    "Golden Days of Radio"
    Frank Bresee August 20th, 1929 - June 5th, 2018

    On a 1939 school field trip, Frank visited KFAC radio station and later that year asked to be on the air. This began Frank’s radio career. 

    In 1941 Frank auditioned for “Red Ryder” radio show and was runner up to his long-time friend, Tommy Cook. This show began in 1942. 

    In 1942 Frank was Alvin on the radio show “Major Hoople” also starring Mel Blanc and Arthur Q. Bryan.  Arthur Q. Bryan was best known as the voice of Elmer Fudd. Arthur became a second father to Frank.  He often drove Frank home after the broadcasts.  In the late 50s, Frank was able to assist Arthur who was losing his sight. After Arthur passed away in 1959, Frank purchased Arthur’s grave marker. 

      After the war, Frank became a regular on the “Billie Burke” Saturday morning radio show.  He worked alongside Marvin Miller.  Frank recalled after the live radio show, Billie would have coffee and pastries ordered from the Brown Derby nearby and personally serve her audience.  

     In the early 1940s Frank began collecting radio items which grew to be one of the most important private radio history collections. As a little boy, he took his wagon, went behind radio stations and retrieved from trash various radio broadcast transcription discs. He also collected radio scripts after attending many of the broadcasts.

      In 1948 Frank spun records for Jim Hawthorne’s radio show in Pasadena, and Frank became a part of Jim TV’s show in 1950.  Frank helped write for the show and create voice tracks for Jim. 

    On August 5, 1949, Frank began the Golden Days of Radio with his large collection of transcription discs.  He played early discs from current radio shows while these shows were broadcasting new shows. Several years ago, Frank asked me to keep and transfer his vast collection of Transcription Discs and Tapes. He asked me to to keep his Golden Days of Radio going after he left us. There are a total of 2,749 total episodes. So this will obviously continue on for several years
