    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 169


    I expect you recall Johnny Roventini and his "Call for Philip Mor…ris" on old radio shows. I wish I could play Johnny singing "Call for Eddie Hubbard" because we have a special treat this time. Eddie Hubbard sings his own composition called "Radio Then." The song is filled with great unique memories that recall many wonderful old radio shows. To my knowledge, this has rarely been played on the air, if ever. Following this performance we'll hear one of Eddie's best Browsers shows which I subtitle "I Like Bananas" for reasons that appear below.

    For some 25 years, Saturday meant Browsers time on radio, with Eddie Hubbard and Phil Holdman guiding the show. Today's show is from the 1990's and features the usual Browsers great music and big band trivia fun.

    Among the great recordings highlighted this time are "Boogie Woogie" by Tommy Dorsey, "Someday (You'll Want Me to Want You)" by Vaughn Monroe," "I'm Beginning to See the Light" by Duke Ellington, "These Foolish Things" by Les Elgart, "Intermezzo" by Freddy Martin, "Let's Dream This One Out" by Frankie Masters, and "Cherokee" by Charlie Barnet.

    Special is a super 1936 curio song from Great Britain's Henry Hall band and vocalist George Elrick who sings "I Like Bananas Because They Have No Bones," and, to add to the novelty, during the recording Elrick mimics Jimmy Durante.

    Among songs added by Eddie in place of commercials are "Am I Blue" by Nat King Cole and "Till I Waltz Again With You" by Teresa Brewer. Phil Holdman's "Phooler" challenge this time involves a gal who sings "Funny Valentine."

    Trivia challenges on this show include Charlie Barnet's other recording with reference to American Indians, pseudonyms for Freddy Martin, more banana song titles, Frankie Masters' theme songs, and two ladies who had great recordings of "I'm Beginning to See the Light.".

    Don't forget that one of the Browsers on today's show, Bob Knack, writes an interesting ongoing online big band newsletter that carries on the tradition of Phil Holdman's "Browser Notes." Go to and enjoy Bob's free "Great Escape" featuring entertaining stories, information, and articles concerning big bands.


    Special thanks to Jerry Haendiges Productions for expert remastering and restoring of the original studio tape for rebroadcast. For more about Jerry's excellent Audio Restoration Services go to his website at or call him at 562-696-4387.


    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!
