Default How About Really Old Radio Programs?

I regret that I never really got a Little Orphan Annie secret code ring!

I regret that I don't remember any. I was born in '47 and by the time my brain developed to the point that I was sufficiently cognizant of such things, they had been replaced by TV. That point occurred somewhere around 1972.

We were too poor to own a radio. We got all our local news listening in on the party lines.

We have XM/Serius and they have a channel devoted entirely to the old radio programs. It's GREAT. Love listening to all the old shows, including Bob Hope doing the military base shows, The Shadow, The Whistler, The Green Hornet, Dragnet, X Minus One, The Cisco Kid, Gunsmoke, and all the other great western, and detective shows, as well as the comedys. When we're on a road trip, it makes the time go by so much faster, but when doing errands in the car around town, you wind up sitting in the car at your destination, listening to the ending of the shows!

When I was a kid, I listened to Mr. Keene, Tracer of Lost Person's, Boston Blackie, The Shadow, Ma Perkins, The Gene Autry Show, Fibber McGee and Molly, Amos and Andy, a morning show before I went to school called Name that Tune . . .

My feeling is that the majority of people who were evening radio show listeners probably had tv's by the late 40's . We did not have a tv till 1952 .
