    Audio Theatre - Tuesday - March 1st - 6 to 8 PM - Host: John Lovering - Jimmy Stewart Night on Audio Theatre!
    February 27th, 2011

      

     

    “The Six Shooter” is the first of three programs starring Jimmy Stewart (photo) that you are going to hear tonight. 

     Jimmy Stewart as “The Six Shooter” From September 27, 1953 “The Coward” A very popular and unique western in that the hero tells the listeners what he is thinking. This is accomplished by whispering or speaking softly as if he were talking to himself. It was a innovative way to advance the storyline back in the 1950′s and listeners loved it. 

     Jimmy Stewart was by all accounts one of the nicest, most kind and considerate actors that there has ever been.  His peers absolutely loved him.  You won’t find bad press written about this man.  He was a gentleman, an outstanding actor, and a hero.  He served the United States during WW II as a bomber pilot flying many missions over Germany from his base in England.  He saw a lot of combat but hardly ever spoke about it.  He considered himself  just another patriot doing his duty and wanted no recognition as a movie star while in uniform.
     

     

    Next, Jimmy Stewart starring in Suspense- tonight from May 19, 1949 you will hear “Consequences” - and like all the superb episodes of Suspense this one will keep you waiting until the very end to find out who did what and why… and what will happen to them as a result!   Photo: Jane Wyman and Jimmy Stewart. 

    Finally, The Gulf Screen Actors’ Guild presents Jimmy Stewart starring in the light-hearted comedy entitled The Shop Around the Corner originally broadcast on September 29th, 1940. 

    Don’t miss these three excellent programs featuring a major star.. and a very nice man… Jimmy Stewart.  You will also hear a recording of a 10 minute speech honoring Jimmy Stewart that was given on the floor of the U.S. Senate in May of 2008 on the occasion of what would have been Jimmy Stewart’s 100th birthday.  It is an excellent summary of many of the accomplishments this man had during his 87 years.

    Audio Theatre - Tuesday - February 22nd - 6 to 8 PM - Host: John Lovering - The Jack Benny Program - Life of Riley - The Adventrues of Ozzie and Harriet - Superman
    February 20th, 2011

     

    It doesn’t matter what you are doing, there is always time to listen to WSCA Audio Theatre with host John Lovering.   Having a collection of nearly 1700 old time radio shows that he loves to share with listeners is only part of the fun.  John also will provide you with lots of anecdotal and factual information about the shows, the actors, sponsors, writers…and it all adds up to an entertaining two hours of listening enjoyment and a bit of education about one of the most remarkable times in American culture.

    First up… postponed from an earlier date… it is the Jack Benny Program  when Jack and the entire gang go ice skating in New York City’s Central Park.  You can be sure if they are all on the ice, there is bound to be a lot of laughter to go along with them.  This show was originally aired on January 25th, 1945.   Oh, in case you didn’t know, Jack Benny had blue eyes and celebrated his birthday on February 14th… that’s why the photo above!

    William Bendix as Chester A. Riley in The Life of Riley, was one of the most popular situation comedies on radio. Tonight’s show features Riley, Peg, Junior, and daughter Babs in an episode entitled “Chivalry is Dead!” This show was originally aired on March 31st, 1950. Digger O’Dell, the local undertaker will also be present to add a few “dead” jokes… which were wildly popular with the listening audience.   The Life of Riley still makes us laugh today because many of the situations he finds himself in, still happen to us.  Yes, it is “a revoltin’ development!”

    The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet was heard on radio a number of years before it went to television. David and Ricky were too small to be in the radio show, so their parts were played by child actors for a number of years. Robert Young in Father Knows Best, also started on radio, and Ozzie and Harriet Nelson were staples in the weekly listening schedule of many Americans.   The values that the shows exemplified had a significant impact on our culture at the time these shows were at the height of their popularity.

    Radiogazette - Friday - February 18th - 9 to 9:30 AM - Host: Ann Haggart - Guests: Dr. Arthur Hilson and Dr. Jeannie Sowers
    February 16th, 2011

    We celebrate Black History month by listening to a touching story of racial discrimination in the Jim Crow days of the South. Portsmouth’s Dr. Arthur Hilson shares his pain upon discovery, as a young man, that life as a Negro was very different than he thought. Plus an update on the situation in the Middle East through a live interview with Dr. Jeannie Sowers of UNH. And….. Ann rides a camel…..

    Audio Theatre - Tuesday - February 15th - 6 - 8 PM - Host: John Lovering - “Milton Berle Show” / “Mercury Theatre On The Air” with Orson Welles in “The Count of Monte Cristo”
    February 13th, 2011

    Join WSCA Audio Theatre host  John Lovering for two hours of classic radio programming that was normal fare for millions of Americans during the 1930′s to the late 1950′s.  These programs are not only entertaining, but in many ways are educational in that they reflect the American culture of the times from which they come.

    Tonight’s featured shows include:

    THE MILTON BERLE SHOW
    starring Milton Berle

    A comedy-variety show that featured the rapid-fire
    delivery of Uncle Milty along with special guests in
    a weekly theme format.  Tonight’s theme is A Salute to Football which was originally broadcast on November 4, 1947.

     

    Orson Welles adapted Alexandre Dumas’ 1844 masterpiece  
    The Count of Monte Cristo
    for his Mercury Theatre on the Air program.

    The story takes place in France, Italy, islands in the Mediterranean and the Levant during the historical events of 1815–1838 (from just before the Hundred Days through to the reign of Louis-Philippe of France).  This is a circa 1939 feature length (60 minute) production.

    It is an adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy and forgiveness.

    Welles also produced, directed, and starred in the production.

    Besides being an excellent story, the acting, music, and sound effects were the best of the best… that is the way Orson Welles did everything he was involved in throughout his career. It is said he was difficult to work with, but that often happens when someone is a perfectionist…and Orson Welles certainly qualifies as a “perfectionist.”

     

    Clayton “Bud” Collyer stars in
    The Adventures of Superman
    Tonight: Episode 20 Part III of IV of the Mystery of Dyerville
    from March of 1940

    The Burt Cohen Show - Tuesday - February 15th - Noon to 1 PM
    February 13th, 2011

    Towns all over America are faced with huge deficits and are under pressure to sell everything, including drinking water, to corporate interests. But in small towns, including heavily Republican NH towns like Barnstead, they’ve sent corporations packing. They’ve actually established new legal rights.

    How? Tune in to The Burt Cohen Show from noon to one Tuesday, or subscribe to the podcast.

    The Free Speech Zone - Sunday Feb. 13th - 7 to 8 PM - Host: DJ Big Brother / Then… “Lives in the Balance” 8 to 9 PM
    February 10th, 2011

     

    Tune in to The Free Speech Zone on Sunday night February 13th at 7 pm to hear two interviews.  First is  an Equal Time Radio interview with David McNally, author of The Global Slump - A Call to Action. McNally reviews the rise of speculative capitalism, the fall of the worker class, the political and economic challenges we face today, and the need for active resistance to address the situation. He correctly observes that the coming Age of Austerity will be used by the elites to get the global public to pay for the $20 trillion or so in largess that was bequeathed to the elites via their cash cows, the government and the big banks. Second is a Scott Horton/Anti War Radio interview with Ed Hasbrouck of The Identity Project. Hasbrouck, author of The Practical Nomad book series and a privacy advocate, discusses US citizen Gulet Mohamed‘s alleged abduction and torture in Kuwait, and how the US government blocked his return home (and violated international law) by adding him to the no-fly list; the questionable Constitutionality of an extrajudicial no-fly list immune from court challenge; how DHS sifts through extensive travel records (PNRs) and tells the airlines who they can and can’t do business with; and how airports have become law free zones much like Guantanamo. His Identity Project blog “explores and defends the fundamental American right to move freely around our country and to live without constantly having to prove who we are or why we are here.”
