What Happened to the Old Time Radio Shows?
Before we had television our parents and grandparents used to listen to shows like we watch today on the radio.
There are shows that my husband listens to on NPR. These shows are Car Talk, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, All Things Considered, A Prairie Home Companion, and Whad'ya Know?. I know these shows are nothing like the ones of the past that were listened to by our parents generations and the generations before them, but in today's radio world they are as close as we can get without the internet and television.
There are a few of the old time radio shows that made it to television, but I doubt they are the same as when they were listened to on the radio. Why is that? It is because you see what the characters of the show are doing rather than having to picture in your mind what they are doing on the radio.
I do remember one set of my grandparents talking at one time how they missed some of their favorite radio shows. The ones they were able to see on television, they said they weren't near as good as what they remembered from listening to when they were younger.
Radio Lovers Old Time Radio Shows
At the Radio Lovers website you will find over 200 different radio shows of the past. Some of these shows I remember my grandparents, my husband, and even my father-in-law talking about. The shows from this site will play online using Quicktime.
The OTR, Old Time Radio, has over 12,000 radio shows from the days of radio shows. Each of the different radio show titles has how many of the shows that aired during their time on the radio. With this site you can download them to your computer. Please note the instructions for playing the radio shows at the top of each of the pages. Be aware that if you have a Mac, there may be an issue with downloading Real Player depending on the OS you have. However, if you are using a PC that has a Microsoft based OS and Real Player, the radio shows will download and open in Real Player when prompted by the dialogue box.
For those of you who remember these shows and miss them, I hope you enjoy listening to them again. Have fun!
