Before I detail the specials this week, a couple of quick notes. First of all we are still booking listeners for the Royal Caribbean “Explorer Of The Seas” Radio Spirits cruise next June (22nd – 27th, 2013) departing from the New York City area and sailing to Bermuda. Join me for all kinds of classic radio events headlined by re-creations of shows live on stage. If you are interested you can call Larry at 800-269-2127 or head directly to this link.
Also I am excited to finally address years of listener requests with the release of a collection of my favorite radio shows. Radio Spirits has produced the 10 CD box set Radio Classics: Selected by Greg Bell
It features many episodes from some of my favorite series, which have not played on the channel yet. I also wrote the companion booklet and introduce the shows on each CD.
Okay on to the week of shows led by Kirk Douglas’ 96th birthday. We also celebrate the birthdays of Frank Sinatra, Jeff Chandler, Dorothy Lamour, Edward G. Robinson, Van Heflin, Jay Jostyn (Mr. District Attorney), Douglas Fairbanks Jr and author Dalton Trumbo (Johnny Got His Gun).
As this is December, we also have a fair amount of Christmas themed episodes this week from the following series among others; Fibber McGee & Molly, Jack Benny, Bergen & McCarthy, Burns & Allen, Abbott & Costello, The Great Gildersleeve, Our Miss Brooks, etc.
Also be sure to check out the new to the channel Life Of Riley episode with Jackie Gleason filling in for an absent William Bendix as Chester.
