  1. Will certainly listen to these programs. There is just so much vintage radio available,a wonderful treasure.
    Lovely photos.

  2. Hey, Aurora!
    Great post, and I’m definitely looking forward to listening to these shows, especially the Screen Guild Theater one. As a long time fan, I’m always thrilled to see these Old Time Radio shows get more love. Also, just thought I’d let you know that I followed up the Dynamic Duos posts I did on Abbott and Costello last weekend today with a look at their Old Time Radio show: , Hope you don’t mind the shameless little bit of self-promotion.
    Keep it Up!

    1. Not at all, Michael! Sharing these classics on all mediums is what excites me so shamelessly shre away! I’ll be over to take a look when I can.
