    If only it was that easy to make today’s TV shows less cheesy…

    Love the days when the radio was a major piece of furniture in every home! Of course, since the introduction of “high definition” television, we have noticed that a great many “television” shows feature action which boils down to a bunch of talking heads, whispering to each other in the dark! In the olden days, when we had some voices speaking to each other in the dark, we called it radio – but radio was a whole lot LESS expensive than today’s so-called “high definition” television!

    @Estrelita
    I still like the radio programs. Classic Radio on XM.

    When we only got one channel, there was ALWAYS something worth watching.

    Nice warm place for critters, what with all the warm tubes keeping the radio really comfy and cozy.

    Find the laugh track. It was originally a recording of people laughing at Red Skelton’s jokes.

    The 3rd panel is amazingly funny.

    That has GOT to hurt!

    I also love the question mark above Mutt’s head.

    “Kiss me once then kiss me twice then kiss me once again, It’s been a long, long time!”

    I love that song by the way… Thank you for introducing me to it.

    I hate to say it, but I will.

    In the early fifties my little family would sit around in the evening and watch the radio.

    My mother and step father would light their cigarettes and grab their beers and nearly run me out of the room with the smoke.

    We would listen to old time programs like The Whistler, or The Lone Ranger. The Inner Sanctum with it’s creepy door sounds occasionally gave an eight year old nightmares.

    The tall ancient wooden radio stood about four feet high and had short wave, and other programs that it could try to reach. To paraphrase or to steal outright from Bill Cosby, I think that it was, the radio had two knobs that still worked. On-off and volume.

    That is why I am,

    Re: Classic Radio on XM – Several years ago, Direct TV included the XM radio stations in their Music Choices channels. We really enjoyed the 40s channel – especially on anniversaries of such important days as Pearl Harbor Day. One year, on Pearl Harbor Day, they played an entire day of actual broadcasts from 1941 which included frequent interruptions for news about the events at Pearl Harbor. On the anniversary of the “this day will live in infamy speech” – XM 40s carried the entire speech as well as the actual wrap-up by the radio commentators who were there standing by when the speech was broadcast. On New Year’s Eve, XM 40s aired actual New Year’s Eve broadcasts from the 40s. The XM 40s station also broadcast a number of 15-minute soap operas. exactly as they were broadcast back in the 40s. Something else which we enjoyed were the commercials – you could purchase a brand new Ford automobile for $400 – and a box of Kraft macaroni and cheese was selling for only SEVEN CENTS per box! We often found ourselves switching off the so-called “high definition” channels in order to listen to the XM 40s channel. Back in the 40s, even the soap operas made sense – unlike today’s stuff.

    Re — SUSAN NEWMAN – “With all the new technology and over 500 TV channels, how come there STILL isn’t anything worth watching?”

    My sentiments exactly. When we invested in Direct TV 13 years ago, we did so because we could no longer stand the network fare – which consisted mostly of so-called “reality” shows. For a while, we enjoyed the new satellite channels – because many of them were re-running shows from back in the days when television was still watchable. However, in recent years, even those channels which made their fortunes by broadcasting re-runs of watchable television shows – decided to “modernize” by going to “all reality shows, all the time.” Makes no reasonable sense whatsoever that an entire satellite and/or cable network would dump a line-up, which has been a proven success, overboard in order to indulge in the type of junk which people were trying to get away from when they first decided to invest in satellite and/or cable!
