I had to jump in on this one!
I have been listening to these old radio shows for some time now as a way to pass the time on the long drives.
I get them from the website Old Time Radio Fan
www.otrfan.com A friend of mine is a radio broadcaster and he gave me the info for the site.
Most of the old ones are available as free mp3 downloads and are easily loaded into a mp3 player and I use an adapter to play over my car or rv system. While listening to "Johnny Dollar" I can easily pass a hundred miles and still be alert.
Thought I could share something with you!

P.S. They even include the original commercials which I find very interesting! Especially the cigarette ads! They make me realize just how much things have changed!!

Back in the early 70's I was living with my Grandma. I was a teenager at the time. I found a 30's vintage radio in her garage. She let me bring it in the house. I cleaned it up and it had a beutiful wood case. But it didn't work. Took all the tubes to the local Thrifty drug store(west coast)(now Rite Aid) Tested them in their tube tester and replaced all questionable ones. Living in Walla Walla Wa. with her that year the radio would pick up radio stations in San Francisco at night where the rest of my family was. 900 miles away. I was promised that radio from her but sadly one of my cousins that lived closer to her ended up with it. But still great memorys of "Watching the Radio With Grandma".
