  1. I just love your show Greg, the comedies are my favorites but I easily get sucked into a good mystery and western! Thanks. I love plugging in my xm portable to my Grandma’s old Hi-Fi to listen to them from a nostalgic sound! It makes me forget my worries and these days there are many!! So thanks again for making us forget for a while and listen to some good old fashioned entertainment!!

  2. I enjoy the pictures. If it is know; can the origin or dates or circumstances be provided on occasion?

    Did everyone catch the Rogue’s Gallery with Dick “Mush-mouth’ Powell a few weeks ago? I rather enjoy the occasional flubs with actors that can ‘roll’ with it.

    1. Yes, I caught his flub. I was surprised they didn’t re-record that (I don’t believe that show aired live.) That said, the technology back then was probably rather challenging to make such edits … or, maybe everyone looked at it as more like live theater than a way to be perfect. (Anyway, kind of refreshing, too, to think that back then there was no such thing as reruns, so it airs once like that and that’s that … no worries.)

  3. I was happy to contribute one of this week’s photos [showing
    Marilyn Monroe with Jack Benny and Eddie ‘Rochester’
    Anderson].

    You can see the larger version by clicking on the thumbnail.
    Rochester is stealing the scene, as Jack pretends to be
    annoyed with him, and Miss Monroe wears a wry expression.

  4. I am hoping we will not have any glitches as we had last Sunday. I am looking forward as always to the new schedule. I see one of my favorites again, Dr Kildare. YES keep them coming. I like Mr&Mrs North also..

    Wish to hear more of Box 13, Richard Diamond, Rogues Gallery too.
