Posted on 10/06/2013 2:30:56 PM PDT by Vision
Friends, it's Sunday night again and time to relax. Warm up the tubes for another 4 hours of classic radio Americana.
*tonight's show will be available at the "Info" link starting tomorrow.
Happy Sunday all.
How is everyone? It’s been sunny and in the 80’s here.
What great lineup tonight. The only weak point is Father Knows Best. Never heard of Luke Salughter of Tombstone...and ending with Whistler from ‘44.
Looks like a decent lineup this evening. A Whistler! But Barton Yarborough died after this Dragnet, although he appears in one more episode.

Hey, Vision. Sounds like nice weather there. We didn’t get the tropical storm. It fizzled, but we have had some rain today and yesterday. They had a blizzard in South Dakota and elsewhere.
No, it was never east of us. It was southwest, down in the Gulf. It moved north until it was south of Louisiana, and then it stalled and dissipated.
I’m looking forward to the cool front that’s moving in tonight or so. It’s going to be really nice.
I've been eating pit beef all weekend.
Yes, the week was fine with no news (other than the ongoing destruction of our nation by the communists within, of course).
Your new slicer is DA BOMB! I was amazed at the pictures on your thread you sent with those pork loins. When they were done, and then you sliced them, it looked like “professionally” sliced meat like we buy in a package or deli! MMMMMM!!!! I know the beef looks just the same. I’m sure you love that new kitchen tool. The guys on that thread liked it, too.
Get one. Maybe put it on the Christmas list.
HA! Yes, Keith’s Mom called him up last week and said Antioch wasn’t working. Keith found a fill-in until he could figure out what happened with Antioch: 20th Century Radio—you probably already know that one. It’s pretty good. Keith figured out the Antioch deal and reprogrammed his Mom’s radio with Antioch from here on the Internet, which is a cool deal to be able to do a state away.
It's nice out I'm gonna take the portable wifi and listen outside with a cigar. Be back later...
I stumbled across the 20th century radio. Lots of crime dramas, westerns and The Green Hornet!
You ain’t just whistling Dixie we did and unfortunately the trees were still leafed out. Disaster!
Wait! Where are you, Wita? And, are you talking about the blizzard, or what? The tropical storm did not hit the mainland. The blizzard did do a number on the trees. My editor at American Clarion, Bob Ellis, posted this from his home: http://www.americanclarion.com/24349/2013/10/06/the-2013-fall-blizzard-of-western-south-dakota/
It's so beautiful outside now.
I have no idea why Ed sometimes starts shows so early. He started counterspy at 9:55.
Sorry, the blizzard. I live about a mile from Bob. Enjoy your writing here and in the Clarion.
That was apparently really common in the “old days”, shows didn’t always start at the top or bottom of the hour.
Oh! I hope all will be well with you and your yard, Wita.
Thank you! :-)
Darn, we tuned out for about an hour. We got on You Tube listening to some “modern” music. It was a rabbit trail lark, but we’re back now...
Thanks for your concern. Yard and deciduous trees a mess, but time and the chain saw will help.
Bless your heart! I know you went without power, and you have a mess to deal with. It’s always something, but thank the Lord people were okay there. We had Hurricane Katrina hit us here on the Mississppi Gulf Coast, and we know about total destruction.

I was listening to “Sky King” and it hit me.
Mike Wallace.... THAT Mike Wallace?
Hey Gina, I posted a goodnight message to you but it didn’t show. Have a great week.
Yes, they have most everything at the Archive site.
I hope you have a good one, too, Vision! See you next Sunday, Lord willing...
