If you are an old time radio fan as I am then the Gassman brothers really need no introduction.  However if you're new to their voices then a small intro may be needed.  They've hosted an old time radio show on public radio here in Southern California since 1982 called Same Time Same Station and while it's on line now here on yesterdayusa.com or at radiooutofthepast.org their knowledge of otr is truly insightful and wonderful.  Well this week we're discussing British personalities who moved to America and we'll hear a Bob Hope show featuring Barel Davis as its singer we'll hear the blitz of London as CBS news covered it we'll listen to some Al Boly music and hear about an English magazine dedicated to to the British dance band sounds of the twenties and thirties and we'll conclude with The Campbellwell Poisoner fromm The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.  Yes it's different but I can already tell you they will be asked back.  You see this is a subject we can continue as we move in to the 400s.  So thanks John and Larry you could have said no with a barbershop harmony convention coming up.  We apreciate it greatly.  Enjoy


This week from stately Lingard Towers we're treated to more then a few treats but beware behind the treats there are a few tricks as well.  In keeping with the season we'll listen to a Wilkie Collins dramatization of The Haunted Hotel but we'll have time to laugh with Radioactive who said people from Oxford weren't funny hear a reading from Lincoln City Radio of Philip K Dick's The I's have it and conclude with a radio play entitled Bah Bah Black Sheep which in my opinion is good enough for BBC you be the judge.  Either way you feel John needs to be thanked for his hard work allowing me to step away for a bit.  Thank you John
