Good evening...we'll probably have some competition with football tonight.

How is everyone? I've got tomorrow off but it's kinda cold out.

A good lineup tonight...with Escape and Lux!

Hi Gina, what's happening?

I did search and find the channel but have not listened to it.

Are you listening to the games?

Ok. I think I've told you about hanging meats over coals before. I've been doing this more and tried ribs yesterday. These were the best, and easiest ever.

This technique has been popularized by pit barrel cookers. Now I can hang meats using a weber smokey mountain. But I'm going to recommend, when budget allows, that you buy a pit barrel cooker.

The entire known available catalog of old time radio shows is available for free at archive.org, as well as loads of other public domain media files including old government nuclear test videos and the like. Old time radio is part of my daily routine with my iPhone while out and about or just sitting at home relaxing on the computer.

Yes, we are aware of the Archive website, but this is a special show that we also enjoy each Sunday evening.

Heck of a game. I can’t tell if Seattle played below par and SF was great for about 3/4 of the game.

Gina, I’m heading to the radio.

Is it just me or does the title of this story seem out of place? What devil?

I checked out for a while, Vision. I don’t know the extent of the injury, but yes, it was bad—one of those legs bent the wrong way.

We liked this Lux. Good night, Vision!

Yeah, I knew you must be familiar with it since that is where all the shows come from. I thought it might be of interest to others that don’t get that fun experience of actually listening on radio. Johnny Dollar and Dragnet are priceless to me. There is a lot of bizarre and funky high-camp from the past too that is fun to listen to occasionally.
