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 210


    This Eddie Hubbard Special from August 8, 1990, brings songs about the weather, spotlighting performers like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Nat Cole, Andy Williams, Frankie Laine, John Denver, Lena Horne, Harry James, Gale Garnett, Jane Morgan, Vaughn Monroe, Billy Vaughn, Les Paul and Mary Ford, and Johnnie Ray.

    Tunes that relate to the weather include “Blue Skies,” “September in the Rain,’ “Let It Snow,” “Stormy Weather,” “The World is Waiting for the Sunrise,” “Sunshine on My Shoulder,” “We’ll Sing in the Sunshine,” “The Summer Wind,” “Orange Colored Sky,” “Canadian Sunset,” “The Little White Cloud That Cried,” “The Day That the Rains Came Down,” “Silvery Moon,” and “Velvet Moon.”

    Eddie played what was available, of course, and as many songs as could fit into the show’s radio time slot. But the show’s theme stimulates some thinking about other possible vintage weather songs — just for the fun of it and kind of in the tradition of the Browsers. And, of course, there are some good ones like “Shine on Harvest Moon,” “Singing in the Rain,” “Moon Over Miami,” “Buttermilk Skies,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head,” “Snowbird,” “You Are My Sunshine,” “You Are the Sunshine of My Life,” “ “We’re Having a Heat Wave,” “Looks Like a Cold Cold Winter,” “Button Up Your Overcoat,” and “Suzy Snowflake.” Maybe some titles are a stretch, like Nat Cole’s great recording of “Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer,” but that’s part of the fun.

    Many thanks to Jerry Haendiges Productions for expert restoration and remastering of the original 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!
