Old Time Radio

By | October 19, 2008

What do I listen to in terms of Old Time Radio? Ok, maybe you didn’t have that question in mind, but I’ll answer it anyhow:

For comedy: Give me a good ol’ Jack Benny show. It always seems to deliver at least one great laugh. I generally don’t feel it was a complete waste of time to listen to one of these for some comedy. I particularly like the later CBS shows.

Also, Fibber McGee and Molly tend to deliver some good laughs. The show tends to be about “nothing.” Ok, so Fibber has a hair-brained scheme or there’s a misunderstanding that isn’t discovered until the end of the show, but overall, there really isn’t much substance. That’s fine as long as the laughs are there.

I’ll discuss other genres in the future.
