Roland Bynum - 1980

Feels like yesterday, Roland Bynum opening the Creators Workshop and the jams were heard..


I'd like to thank Robert Cleveland for his generous contribution to the cause

In honor of fallen comrades: John Bradley, Roger Maynard, Jim Williams, Aaron Perry Davis, Rudy Padua, Herman Capello, Mark and so many others that contributed so very much to AFPN Clark, 13th AF, FEN and throughout AFRTS-SE Asia during Vietnam.

It'll be put to good use, and thank you.

Adventure Theater - 1976

Announcer William Conrad

We had a lot of great Old Time Radio, repackaged over the decades.  That worked well because in a lot of countries we had radio but not television well into the 80s.  Adventure Theater had the classics.  Today a 1955 show, well calculated to keep you in... Suspense.

Roland Bynum - 1981

Kickin' out the jams... That is Roland Bynum...

There went another PC

The PC I'd been using for the website locked up and died.

Fortunately I had just finished up one I was working on.  So I'm a little behind.  Everything was saved from the old PC hard drive!

If you could throw in a couple of bucks, it'd help...

It's always an adventure.  How was your day?

Unsafe to download?

Microsoft is doing it again:

When you try to download audio on a Microsoft browser, Internet Explorer or Edge you'll get that message.  You will not get that message on any other browsers Windows, MacIntosh or Android Here's the deal.  4shared is a site to transfer files. Our files are hosted there.  Some people share software with viruses.  So when they "share" a bootleg copy of Windows and create havoc on a computer it ends up flagging the site.

Redoing 2500 pages isn't going to happen, even if I did that the files have to be hosted somewhere and the same thing could happen again.

Data files (sound and audio) are safe files.

Microsoft removed the option of getting the file.
