    O/T Amos

    Man, I watched 1 tape of 4 my buddy got for Christmas and I LMAO. I heard of them but I never heard the radio show or saw the TV show.What a riot! The actors were geniuses and so were the writers.The one about the rare nickle was first and I was crying and holding my gut it was so funny! I saw nothing racial or derogority in it except for white folks that were always portrayed as crooks or bandits.I'm not that racial to cry RACE against whites but I know someone will cry the other way around.Poor dumb bleeding hearts.

    On Sunday night Dad would take the radio down off the top of the refrigerator and set it right on the kitchen table.

    Amos 'N Andy, Jack Benny, Fibber McGee, Our Miss Brooks, the evening was filled with chuckles.

    "Holy Mackrul, dere, Andy"

    LOL.

    Those were the days of: "Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men, The Shadow does", "Look up in the sky, it's a bird, it's a plane, it's Superman" and of course "Come with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear where from out of the past comes the thundering hoofbeats of the great horse Silver and The Lone Ranger". Best video in the world because the images were in your imagination.

    Don't forget, Mr.Keen, tracer of lost persons.

    Jack Armstrong, All American Boy.

    Sky King!!!

    Lots of good golden oldies.

    If you do a Google you can generally find a site where you can hear the programs.

    Mixer, you have it right. I could see everything that was happening in those programs just like I was there.

    Hauxfan!

    My favorite part of the show. Andy is Kingfish's reference, and he says, "oh, yeah. He's ok, give him the 200."

    I've got that dog goned XM radio and waste my $$ cause all I listen to is Old Time Radio so I hear all the things your talking about, plus programs like the Bickerson's, Duffy's Tavern "Where the Elite Meet to Eat", Hopalong! Sure helps the miles go by on a trip. But someone above is right--the greatest thing about old time radio was your imagination. The same holds true for books. It's why your disappointed when you read a book and then see a movie based on it--most never meet your version.

    When I was a teenager in the 1970's, a local radio station here used to run shows from the Golden Age of Radio... including Amos 'n' Andy, The Life of Riley, The Shadow, Fibber McGee and Molly, etc.

    Click on the link for some Portland, Oregon nostalgic radio.

    In addition, we also had some of the radio personalities like Victor Ives hosting late night TV programming like Sinister Cinema and Sci Fi Cinema.

    As a kid I loved listening to these radio shows and watching these old movie shows.
