Bob Hastings

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 5:12 pm

Terry Salomonson reports the unhappy news that Robert Francis “Bob” Hastings, Archie Andrews on radio and Elroy Carpenter on TV’s McHale’s Navy, passed away June 30, 2014. Bob and his wife Joan have four children, ten grandchildren, and eleven great-grandchildren.

Bob was a staple at various OTR conventions around the country, including REPS, FOTR, the Ohio Nostalgia Expo where an award is given in his name, and others. He was also, as Terry put it, “one helluva friend.” I second that, and my daughter agrees, too - Bob always fussed over Kate.

Many of us here have fond memories of the time we spent with him, not only enjoying his performances at the conventions, but over coffee (or later in the evening, other beverages). Terry told me the first time he met Bob was back in 1967 or 1968; Terry took the Universal tour, and Bob was the “Celebrity of the Day” on Terry’s tour, the Universal star who chatted with the tour, taking questions and entertaining the crowd.

Last year at the Nostalgia Expo, Bob sat down with Kate and me for an in-depth interview, talking about his career in radio, television, voice-over, and films. That interview, which aired on Radio Once More last year, will be repeated next week (see the SummersTime website for information, and Radio Once More to hear our show), and is also available for download here on the blog)

We are going to miss you, friend.

Hi!

So, Dad’s having some issues keeping up with updating the SummersTime website. But, he finally got that updated, even adding pictures from the Nostalgia Expo!

Now he has to work on updating the podcast editions of SummersTime, and he promised he would upload at least one every day this week! But hopefully even after this week, I can get him to update it more regularly so that at some point, we might even get caught up!

Now that the 2014 Nostalgia Expo is over…

Filed under: General, Old-Time Radio, Radio Today — Charlie Summers @ 1:01 pm

…I have some thanks, some apologies, and some thoughts. This post is only a beginning, since I have yet to gather things together (or unpack anything, for that matter), but every journey starts with…oh, you know.

So first, a few non-exclusive thanks. Thanks to Melanie for the book…I owe you at the very least a Moon Pie! Thanks to Mike for letting Kate and me interview the special guests, and this after him seeing us do the same thing last year. Thanks to returning guest Ivan Cury for a compliment that means more to me than he can imagine, considering my respect for what he has done for a living. Thanks to both new guests (Beverly Washburn and Jon Provost) for allowing Kate and me the interviews, and accept apologies for anything we might have messed up. And thanks to all three of the convention guests for having done such an awesome job in the performances…I’m sure they didn’t have nearly as much fun doing the work as we did listening, but they all did one helluva job bringing those scripts to life. Thanks for so many Digest subscribers for telling me what the Digest means to them…just so you know, I feel exactly the same way. Thanks to everyone at the convention for treating Kate so well…trust me, she loves attending the Ohio convention.

Apologies go to anyone and everyone I dashed-off without acknowledging…seems I’m always running off somewhere, and inevitably someone is talking to me while I’m doing so. Apologies to Jon Provost for screwing up the video recordings of our interview…thanks to Mike backing up the backups, we at least have audio of the interview. Apologies to Blue Ash Chili for my not making it there this year, but thanks for the pickup order that still got me my cheese coney and Cincy-style for lunch. Apologies to the people sitting behind me at the performances…I tried to stay low and out of the way, but I’m a pretty big guy and probably got in your way more than once.

Thoughts? A bunch, but none I’ve gathered together yet. (As some of my friends will tell you, I have to go far and wide to gather my thoughts…) Later today I’ll get a few photos up, and see what else I can put together over the next week.

But right now, I have to mow the lawn… ;)

Cliff Carpenter

Filed under: Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 1:37 pm

The Friends of Old Time Radio, both the specific and the general, lost one of its greatest friends this past week, Cliff Carpenter. Cliff was a staple of FOTR and other conventions, performing many varied roles. More than that, he was a d*mned nice guy. And there was, in my opinion, no one who could perform a stock western heavy better. After the jump, there are photos from various conventions and even a short tribute video.
