Welcome to the Golden Age of Radio!
Before television there was RADIO! Radio - the sounds and stories that stimulated the imagination. Like books radio requires the use of your mind to interpret the descriptions. Like books, radio explored many different visions - comedy, music, drama, horror, crime, war, sports and news.
All this was created in a simple radio studio - often with one microphone, several actors and some special effects people supplying the sound effects. From these modest surroundings came...
Superman - The Green Hornet - George Burns and Gracy Allen - Bob Hope - The Lone Ranger - Ozzie and Harriet - Nero Wolfe - Dragnet - Chicken Man...
Everyone today watches TV but before TV everyone listened to the radio. There were regular programs broadcast at the same time every day. There were ongoing serials and soap operas. There were musical variety shows making the stars into stars. There were successes and flops.
Today we can relive the radio of yesterday on our computers, through the internet and on portable MP3 players. Join us now!
