Friends it's Sunday night again, and time to relax. Warm up the tubes for another four hours of classic radio Americana.

Hi All, how are you doing? I love the month of July and am sorry to see it go.
A good lineup this evening. Duffy’s Tavern, Gangbusters, and Box 13 are solid programs...and we end with Cary Grant in Screen Directors Playhouse...fun stuff.
After a busy weekend I’m ready for a good evening of OTR...
Please pray for the peace of safety of Israel.
It's a nice lineup with a "Box 13" and a performance from Cary Grantin teh Screen Director's Playhouse.

Prayers to Israel Gina. How are you doing?
Good grief! I just noticed my gross typos in my comment on the synopsis list. Don’t know how I didn’t that without catching them.
Anyway! Hi, Vision. It’s hot as a firecracker here! Well, a very HUMID firecracker. We’re doing fine. It sounds like you and Keith and I have all been very busy this weekend, work, work and then housework! Are you doing well, besides being busy?
Just had to cut an evening scooter ride short due to a few drops of rain. Nuts.
Anyway, seasonally we're kinda cool here. You must have our humidity or the humidity is on the way. Anything cooking? I'm reheating some frozen steaks.
Sounds good! You can take OTR with you everywhere you go with the snazzy apps. :-)
We’re grilling burgers and frying some potatoes for fries. Mmmmm... Which reminds me, I need to go make the patties and get them marinating.
You marinate burgers?
I make the patties on a cookie sheet, then douse them on both sides with Worcestershire sauce and add garlic powder and pepper. I cover them and let them soak like that till grilling time.
The shows are good. We’re drawn in to Johnny Dollar’s matter, and that Dragnet was good, although awful.
20th Century ran this GS last week. It's a good one.
They cold-busted “Stubby” for the young Marine’s murder. He got life.
I think I heard that, they got him at the bar and ran him in. No major climax.
No, he broke down and confessed. He was a lunatic.
Ed does a good King Henry on the Joy Boys. He’s played that before, but it’s funny to hear it again.
Hey, folks — the burgers sound terrific! Anybody have a recipe for kielbasa and cabbage? I’ve got a refrigerator full, and I don’t know what to do with it.
I’d grill or pan fry the sausage and saute the cabbage in butter.
Duffy’s Tavern is kinda lame.
In college I made golombki for a Polish fraternity brother, using his own Polish cookbook. It was delicious, but an incredible amount of work — make rice, cut up kielbasa, chop onions, mix together with spices, roll up the meat-rice mixture in cabbage leaves (the exasperating part), enough to fill a 9x13 baking pan, top it with mushroom sauce, bake. Took me two hours. I’d like to make something like it again, maybe serve the rice/meat over cooked cabbage, but I’ve forgotten what the spices were! arrgh!
