Posted on 01/12/2014 2:02:45 PM PST 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.
Lots of football this weekend. Gina, sorry about the Saints.
A decent lineup tonight. Fibber McGee & Molly is disappointing but the 10pm hour has solid detective shows.
We finally have schedules posted, and it's a decent lineup tonight. We have a couple of title mismatches with The Lone Ranger and Philip Marlowe.

Hi, Vision! Yes, that was a painful game yesterday! I didn’t have my hopes too high, but it was still a bummer when they lost to Seattle.
All’s well here. We’re very glad that bitter cold has moved on. How’s it going with you?
How did yesterday go for you? It was like God was against the Saints. Just awful.
Due to the rain I braised chicken yesterday and it was pretty good.
That was definitely a whole-team loss yesterday. It wasn’t on any one guy, from the kicker, to Drew Brees to Ingraham’s fumble for a score and the other dropped passes, lots of them helped bring on the loss.
We have the Denver-San Diego game on now. We heard that SF game earlier. You’re right about SF.
I know you’re darned glad that terrible cold has moved on! I’m baking more of my giant chocolate chip cookies to give to more people who didn’t get any of the first Christmas batches. Keith just took some chicken out of the freezer and put it in some brine to thaw. Guess it’ll go on the grill.
After watching these four games I'll say it's a Broncos vs Seahawks Superbowl with the Seahawks winning.
I’ll be rooting for Denver. :-)
William Conrad on JD...
A pitcher of scotch and soda...
A sturdy pitcher!
Love the Andrew Sisters. They were/are America.
I loved that song. The Andrews were great, indeed!
Matt CAN’T quit! :-)
Meh. I’m starting to not buy this storyline. They had me until Matt resisted stopping the killing of the woman/bartender.
Yeah! I thought Chester would say he didn’t send the wire to Washington, after all. And, I certainly thought they would follow through with his dealing with the bad guy!
I can't take this stupid show. I'm tuned into 20th Century until 9pm. Gunsmoke is on BTW...
They’ve made some pretty darned funny jokes on this Fibber McGee and Molly. It strikes me about as funny as the other comedies like Our Miss Brooks, Jack Benny and Duffy’s Tavern.
Ok, I’m glad.
I’m not a big SciFi fan but X Minus One is one of the better ones.
This sounds like a cool one, for Halloween, too! :-)
Women can be so difficult.
Hi Viking, good evening. How are you? Things?
Happy New Year, Viking! :-)
Gina, all, I’m heading to bed but will be listening...I may post again.
Have a great week!
See you later, Vision!
I hope Manning smokes the Seahawks like a cheap cigar.
I agree, except that evokes the spectre of “slick willi and the blew dress” :)
Hey, the Democrats said unemployed means you can spend more time with your family!
Seriously, I’m sorry to hear about that, Viking! I pray you both find what you need and soon. As you noted though, upright and sniffing air is still a very good thing! :-)
PS: Yeah! I want Seattle to go down! The Saints must be avenged. :-/
