Jerry Haendiges'
"Old Time Radio Classics"
Jerry began broadcasting over several Southern California stations from 1969 till 1989. 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. John and Larry are now back and you hear their excellent programs right here every week right here on his Olde Tyme Radio Network. Jerry is continuing on using his original show title of "Old Time Radio Classics."

    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 262


    Hands are the focus on the (undated) first Eddie Hubbard Special on this Episode of Classics & Curios. That means we can enjoy songs like “Hold My Hand” by Don Cornell, “I Let My Heart Fall Into Careless Hands” by Mel Torme, “Empty Arms” by Teresa Brewer, “Put Your Arms Around Me Honey & Hold Me Tight” by Dick Haymes, “Cuddle Up a Little Closer” by Vic Damone, “Don’t Tease Me” by the King Sisters, “He Touched Me” by Barbra Streisand, “Turn Back the Hands of Time” by Eddie Fisher, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” by Laurie London, and a double bill of “Time on My Hands” by both Freddy Martin and Artie Shaw.

    Extra added attractions are Frank Sinatra’s “The World We Knew” and Sergio Mendez’ “The Fool on the Hill.”

    The second Eddie Hubbard Special is from June 4, 1990, and concerns indecisions, doubts, and questions in song, so that means songs like “Undecided Now” by the Ames Brothers, “Are You Sincere?” by Andy Williams, “I Can’t Believe That You’re in Love with Me” by Connie Haines, “What Is This Thing Called Love?” by Mel Torme, “Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me)?” by Tony Bennett, “I Really Don’t Want to Know” by Les Paul & Mary Ford, “Don’t You Know?” by Della Reese, “This Can’t be Love” by Nat Cole, “I Don’t Know Why I Love You Like I Do” by Eddie Howard,”Can Anyone Explain?” by the Ames Brothers, “How Little We Know” by Frank Sinatra, “Why Don’’t You Believe Me?” by Joni James, and “You Don’t Know Me” by Ray Charles.

    “Tijuana Taxi” by Herb Alpert fills out the hour on this session.

    Special thanks to Jerry Haendiges Productions for expert restoration and remastering of original studio tapes of these Eddie Hubbard shows for rebroadcast. To the late Eddie Hubbard, my heartfelt appreciation for his friendship and for the studio tapes of his shows produced in Chicago and Dallas and enjoyed by countless loyal “Hubbard’s Clubbers” radio fans.


    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!
