Title: Potential
Post by: Truthyness on May 20, 2017, 02:23:13 AM
Came across this : (
and at the site selected took this first bite at the apple: (

The play was listenable but "the greatest was behind" ... the show to follow was a "live" quiz dating back from the forties or fifties sponsored by Heinz featuring Boris Karloff, Jan Struther (Mrs. Miniver) and a.n. other. The moderator was tip top, the atmosphere was laid back, the badinage witty. The whole seemed quite modern as compared to the BBC stuffiness at the same period.

I'd  be interested to hear feedback.

Which program did you listen to, Tru? The American programs are hit and miss, but the good ones are usually pretty good. You might enjoy some
South African OTR (Old Time Radio). I just found Playhouse 90 and they were pretty good. I also like Beyond Midnight from that part of the world.

The Aussies also have some pretty good ones, as well as our Canadian neighbors (Midnight Cab comes to mind).

Yes OTR is a biggie. I listen rarely and tend to feel somehow lost by the atmosphere and the ads.
Sorry for late reply, had medical issues to deal with.
