Bruce's OTR Show of the Week

The first installment of Bruce's OTR Show of the Week is up and ready for you. this is an episode of Fibber McGee and Molly from 1949 called Doc Gamble Day, and has the distinction of being the first OTR show I've ever listened to. I present here two versions, which I will originally call version 1 and version 2.

Version 1 is complete and uncut. Version 2 has the commercials and music cut out. Version 2 is a little clearer than version 1. It was also this edit, the version 2 edit, which our local station played back in 1979 when I first heard it. So, because it is a funny episode, as well as for sentimental reasons, that is my choice for the first OTR show of the week. Here are the download links:



The Firehouse Theater

Since you're into Old Time Radio shows, you might be interested in a show that comes on on one of my local radio stations on Sundays from 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM EST. They air both old time and modern radio theater productions. (The radio station actually comes out of an old fire stations, so that's why the show has the above title.) You can hear online streaming of the show at http://www.wfhb.org . Or, you can just search for WFHB on Google or something.

Re: The Firehouse Theater

Thanks for the recommendation. I'll most certainly keep that in mind. Take care.
