I had to post a plug for one of my favorite online radio stations, and I was really excited to hear they're going to start carrying the original Superman shows.

Sirius/XM Channel 82 - Radio Classics.  I'm kind of addicted to old timey radio now and the old Superman shows are one of the better ones.

Is that the series where the writer completely destroys the KKK by revealing all of their ceremonies and how pathetic they really were?

Gunsmoke is a great radio show.and a lot of the Arch Oberler's Lights Out episodes can get in one's brain and move the furniture around.

Be sure to drink your Ovaltine.

I figured farkers probably noticed this too so here goes:
In the saturday morning chocobot hour for the Justice League of America cartoons opener, does anyone else hear that old man's dentures fall out and call him SHOOPERMAN everytime?  I guess tape was expensive back then.

This.  Would be nice to see somebody do this with the Lone Ranger - with the movie coming up, it might work, but I know there's some serious ownership issues with the various versions of the character.  Another goodie was I Love A Mystery - the better ones, all you have to do is close your eyes, listen, and you can see the greatest Indiana Jones movie ever made.

I was addicted to Lights Out for years. Could not sleep with out Bathysphere the best radio drama I have ever heard. That and Escape Three Skeleton Key are the  best of the best.  Those were the days.

Correct, that would be the story arc "Clan of the Fiery Cross"

Audio Noir will kill an afternoon if you've not heard it before. My own preferences are Nightwatch(COPS on the radio), Pat Novak(Jack Webb and it's AWESOME) and Richard Diamond(tongue-in-cheek Dick Powell detective). And you can check the playlist to see what's coming up.

I don't have a good enough imagination to really understand what's going on when these radio shows are playing =/

And it looks like they dropped Diamond so now I've got another way to kill an afternoon.

Good stuff.  "And The Moon Be Still As Bright" is one of my favorites.  The description of an image of children burned into the side of a building, with a ball in the air between them, is a creepy visual to think about.

Love old time radio shows.

Tellingthem: cool I like listening to these old shows. I remember sitting with my grandma and listening to The Shadow.


Two words for you:  Blue Coal.

/love old time radio shows for the commercials too

Thanks for the recommendations!  I'll check those out.

Thanks submitter!

Anyone else here a fan of the old Buck Rogers radio show too?
 
2013-03-30 09:22:26 PM
Haven't listened to Buck Rogers yet, but all day today I've been listening to the Supermans on Teetotaler's link.
 
2013-03-30 10:32:24 PM
My fave is the Halloween night broadcast of the Orson Welles War of the Worlds.

That way you don't have to look for it :)

Thank you.  I appreciate it.  These really are entertaining, and not in the "quaint, old timey" kind of way.  They're actually tension-filled dramatic suggestive stories that really turn your brain on the same way as the best of cinema.
 
2013-03-31 09:51:30 AM
I'm up to episode 219 of the original Dragnet radio shows.

Pinky and the Brain er... Pinky and the Fog... an episode involving old-timey radio drama. Makes me laugh every time :)

Yep.  Didn't realize it was him.  Sounded like a Don Pardo and Robin Leech mix.
Did it at least sound like he said SHOOPERMAN to you too?
