Sometimes you just stumble onto something good, and it takes you by surprise. Such was the case recently when I discovered Sirius Channel 148. This channel is the Radio Classics channel on Sirius radio and it features classic shows from the Golden Age of Radio, from the 1920s through the 1950s, before television took over in the American household. Occasionally, they also broadcast the original vintage commercials from this era on the air too.
Oh, and what a treat it is. Especially if you are going to be listening in long enough to hear an entire episode. Most episodes they air are about 30 minutes in length, and you can tune in at the next scheduled time to pick up on your favorite radio show where you left off, just like they did it back in the good old days.
They have all the old familiar classic radio shows. Not sure which one I was listening in on recently, but it was a mystery, and you could hear all the radio sound effects. I can just picture all the actors by their microphones with their scripts and the sound guys with all their gadgets chiming in at just the right time.
Here's the link to the Radio Classics webpage for more info on programming and scheduling. Check it out. This is a good one. I promise.
