    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

SummersTime for the week of 10/29/2018

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 11:43 am

Charlie once again forces daughter Kate to join him inside the gates of the NostalgiaLand cemetery, where old entertainment genres are buried! While there, to chase away the ghosts and goblins they listen to Halloween-themed episodes of Weird Circle, Halls of Ivy, Hermit’s Cave, The Jack Benny Program, The Adventures of Sam Spade, and Lights Out!

Special thanks to Internet OTR Digest subscribers Bryan Wright and Larry Siskind for suggesting programs for this walk through the land of deceased entertainment!

(And who knows, this may prompt Charlie to get his act together and post SummersTime episodes on a regular basis!)

SummersTime is the Radio Once More show hosted by Charlie Summers with occasional appearances by his collage-going daughter team Kate. Our goal is to pick some awesome Old-Time Radio shows that we want to hear, and then play them for you, too! Be sure to listen to this week’s broadcast - schedule posted both at the SummersTime website and at Radio Once More!

You may stream the show using the player below, or download it with the link. Remember, by subscribing to this blog with any podcasting client (Juice, iTunes, etc. - just add the the RSS link over on the sidebar or hit the button) the shows will be automatically downloaded to your computer or MP3 player!

Fourteen Years Ago Today…

Filed under: Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 7:55 am

…the first Bob Edwards Show was broadcast on XM Satellite Radio. (To be accurate, it was not the first production; there were two pilot programs produced before this initial broadcast. One day I will share them with you.)

I have to tell you, holding the archives of the program is a constant source of entertainment and amazement. For this anniversary, I thought I’d share with you video taken in the control room while that first program was beginning. Your cameraman is Chad Campbell, the final Executive Producer of the program. The video begins a bit early, with Bob and David Broder in the studio waiting for the cue from show producer Melissa Gray. And I hope those who were there that day can identify all the folks in that room.

So let’s step back to the very beginning of a magnificent journey, and watch the very start…
