Old Time Radio Shows
Screen Directors Playhouse
MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN COLLECTING OLD TIME RADIO SHOWS FOR A LONG TIME NOW. HE LISTENS TO THEM WHILE HE IS WORKING IN THE DARKROOM.
WE THOUGHT WE WOULD SHARE THEM WITH OTHERS SO THEY COULD ENJOY THEM ALSO.
In the late 1940s, the Radio waves were so jam packed with glamour variety shows that promised to deliver Hollywood right in the audience's living room that people began to distrust broadcasting systems. The audience needed something fresh and true to what Hollywood really is. They demanded a first person view of Hollywood, not a dramatization. From the outcries of the public, there came The Screen Directors' Playhouse.
The Screen Directors' Playhouse was similar to Screen Guild Theater, which was a charity variety revue that supported the maintenance of the Motion Picture Country House, except that Playhouse added the element of director participation. The shows consisted of the director giving a radio adaptation of the movie, then sitting down with the actual stars of the film and reminisce about the whole movie-going experiencing and what they have done in their free time between then. It was not the star power that kept this vehicle running, it was writing. According to creator Don Sharpe, "writing is the most important single factor in a radio package," and that was perfectly demonstrated in the show.
THERE ARE 93 Episodes ON 1 CD AND THEY ARE IN MP3 FORMAT. THEY WILL PLAY ON ANY COMPUTER AND SOME CD PLAYERS THAT ARE MARKED PLAYS MP3s. YOU CAN EASILY BURN THEM TO A CD SO YOU CAN PLAY ON YOUR CAR SYSTEM. I HAVE THEM ON MY ZUNE AND ONE OF MY FRIENDS HAS THEM ON HIS I-POD.
