Roland Bynum 1983

Roland Bynum was making some great radio in 1983. He was always a Voice of Home.  Thanks for the memories!

Music By Candlelight - 1966

It's been a busy day, time for relaxing music on "Music By Candlelight".  This was an AFRTS in house production in a tradition that wend back to World War II.  The show names changed but programs of symphonic music were there for a long long time.

Inner Sanctum - 1950

Halloween is coming... The best old time radio to program was the mysteries.  AFRTS ran these shows well into the 1990s.  A lot of the young troops had never heard such a thing, but with one TV channel it provided an alternative.  There was an amazing collection at AFRTS-LA that kept being re-issued.

Inner Sanctum.  "The Hitch-Hiking Corpse". A motorist driving west meets a strange and beautiful hitch-hiker. Interesting adaptation of the Lucille Fletcher story with subtle differences.  Mercedes McCambridge, Everett Sloane.

Jim Ameche - 1965

Jim Ameche had some beautiful music.  He did syndicated shows and bounced back and forth between NY and LA.  By the late 1950s he was with AFRTS and still going strong in the 1960s.

The mailing list

Thanks for visiting!!!

You may have noticed it's been a while since you received an email update.  Over the years the list got so big it wouldn't work.  My suspicion is there may be a lot of people who are no longer with us or don't really care.  I'd like to redo it and keep sending out updates.  But I'm starting over again.

If you'd like to be included on the mailing list, just drop me a quick email Click here

It goes out every week or two.  And the band plays on...

Robert Q Lewis - 1958

Sometimes this is what we have to work with.  A lot of people made this happen and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.  Thanks John and Doug!  Robert Q was on the network in the late 50s from CBS radio.
