Stop me if you heard this one before…the grand pappy of multi track recording cuts an amazing radio show in his apartment with his talented wife. Pioneering the skills that would go on to foster a new musical era all while tossing about the mad bants, Les Paul and Mary Ford made a series of radio shows that while short lived still astounds. Dan and Tom look into this series on the most recent episode of Our Show of Show Podcast

Many folks who are getting into or who are well into listening to old time radio are missing out on a whole other country’s worth of material . The UK, Britain, whatever you want to call it, is the home of so much great radio waiting to be heard. Some of it you may know of even if you do not know it.

In this episode we dive into three different treasure troves of listening from that great isle.

  • The Goon Shows
  • Kenneth Williams
  • Just A Minute

But Don’t Take Our Word For It…..

Episode 03 : Gunsmoke

Episode 03 : Gunsmoke

This episode, we talk about the great 1950s radio western, Gunsmoke (and, as much as possible, we avoid talking about the mediocre TV version). Gunsmoke was the first radio western made strictly for adults, and its creators originally intended Marshall Matt Dillon to be a sort of Philip Marlow of the Old West, but the show quickly grew into a complex, often dark drama that went to some really harrowing places. We veer off topic into the original Maltese Falcon prop (which sat on Gunsmoke star William Conrad’s mantle for years) and the cast’s connections to Rocky & Bullwinkle, Star Trek, and the Keebler cookies, but we eventually circle back to talk about the curse of being Matt Dillon, why Fort Laramie is no Gunsmoke, and we discuss the pioneering disabled woman who wrote 80 of the last 200 episodes of the show, Marion Clark. And Dan still doesn’t have a good tag line.
