Friends, it's Sunday night again. Warm up the tubes for another 4 hours of classic radio programs...
NPR = Never.
KJO, this is not about the libtards of NPR. The Big Broadcast is a long-running, shining example of old-time American radio. It is the exception to the leftist slime of NPR.
Thanks to J. David Goldin's RadioGOLDINdex for these brief synopses.

Hi, Vision. We’re gonna grill a couple of beef steaks, too, strips. What are crash potatoes? Not much going on here.
Rush and Wayne Allen Root both predicted the 49ers and Patriots (but Root made his prediction at the beginning of the season!). We’ll see...
Yep, the ravens are underdogs. We'll see.
Did anyone watch the Lance Armstrong interviews? I saw the whole thing.
Hi, Doc! Did you reschedule your surgery? I hope you’re all better from the flu.
That sounds good, Vision. I have some baking potatoes and sweet potatoes in there. Still have to figure out what to make for a side.
We may be partly listening to the Patriots-Ravens game instead of the Big Broadcast. We’ll see...
“Sing Sing Sing” is one of our big-time favorite songs! It’s a Louie Prima composition, I believe (it has lyrics). Benny Goodman had the smash hit with the instrumental of it.
Cool, I missed it. Just tuned back in...will have to listen to the replay.
Ravens still in the game...
Yeah, we’ve gone back to the game. We listened to Gunsmoke and Goodman, but now put the radio back on football.
The ravens are going to the superbowl. Holy crap. This town will be on fire.
WOW! What a game!
Lay low, Vision! :-)
Hopefully there won’t be many fans firing their pieces into the air.
Night Gina, have a great week.
Goodnight, Vision. I’ll be rooting for the Ravens in a couple of weeks.
Sorry, I fell asleep very early last night.
Surgery is rescheduled for Mon. Jan 28.
I did not realize you had a thread for Lance Armstrong. For quite a while now, I usually only check out FR for this Sun night thread.
I’m so disgusted over obama’s re-election & The fact that too many people here on FR did not support his opponent until the last minute, if even then.
I would have walked 2 miles to the polls. The fate of our country & health care was at stake.
Somehow these people are living with themselves when obama’s sworn in again. They’ll find out in a couple of years when rationing & death panels kick in.
