Old Time Radio Shows
Get yourself all revved up, because Random Rarities Collection Number Four is ready to take you on a tour of different genres around the world. Let’s start our trip in Dixieland with This is Jazz, a fantastic musical program for the lovers of toe tappin’ and banjo-pickin’. Then continue your tour in the United States with American Album of Familiar Music, a show broadcast from 1931to 1951 with Frank Munn, Donald Dame, Evelyn MacGregor, Margaret Down, Arden and Arden, Bertrand Hersch and hosted by Roger Krupp, Andre’ Baruch, and Howard Claney. Don’t put on the brakes yet - grab your beret and fly off to the city of love with Maurice Chevalier’s music program, broadcast from France, This is Paris.
If you’re ready for adventure, go headhunting with our hero, Trobriand, the Adventurer in the South Seas. Or perhaps your more in the mood to take a trip into the brain of a young woman who is going insane. In that case, you’ll enjoy an exciting episode of Exploring the Unknown, where a surgeon pokes inside a brain. The program features stories from Science Magazine, and stars such Hollywooders as Veronica Lake.
If you think taking a trip into a brain is going to far, then how about Mars? Slip into your space suit and listen to Think, a rare science fiction show from 1953. One show in this collection is the exciting “Mars is Heaven,” where Earthlings land on Mars and have an unusual case of de-ja-vu. This particular episode is based on Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles. Great stars such as Arch Oboler frequent this sci-fi delight.
Fly back in time to WWII for The Zero Hour, a Japanese radio program run by Iva Toguri, who was later known as Tokyo Rose. Although poor in sound quality, these rare recordings are an example of Japanese propaganda from WWII. The programs include news, swing music, and other propaganda aimed at Americans soldiers overseas. There’s also This is Our Enemy, a WWII program created by the United States Office of War Information. Each program broadcast in 1942 had a drama about Germany, Japan, or Italy. The rare This is Our Enemy program in this collection is about Nazi Youth.
How about taking a rest from all that traveling? A night at the theater is just what you need. Lend an ear to Theater of Famous Radio Players, which features dramatic stories from the 1930s about subjects such as love so strong that it transcends death, or a study between an attractive career woman and attractive career man who are after the same career. The show is introduced by the stars in the program. Or skip on over to Starlight Theater a fantastic program from 1953 and 1954, hosted by Madeleine Carroll.
You don’t have to be rich to own this great collection, but maybe you could shell out a few to listen to That’s Rich, a 1954 radio comedy starring Stan Freberg, Alan Reed, Daws Butler and Hal March. So whether you’re setting your sights on Japan, Mars, Paris, Dixieland, or the South Seas, Random Rarities Four will take you there!
