Mother's Day on The Lone Ranger

Posted: 10 May 2013 09:30 PM PDT



Well, it's not strictly a Mother's Day story here on Southbridge Old Time Radio's Saddle-up Saturday, but I think you'll agree that the plot of this Lone Ranger episode titled "A Nephew is Found" fits the theme quite well.




This is a heartwarming story of the love of a mother and a grandmother.  Enjoy!

Don't Call Me Mother

Posted: 08 May 2013 10:41 PM PDT


It's been just the two of them - Laurie and Larry - for a while now.  Husband and wife?  Boyfriend and girlfriend?  Oh, no, mother and son.  And that's just the way Mother (pardon me, Laurie) likes it.

Enter Roberta, a new woman in Larry's life.  Laurie and Larry and Roberta? No, that will never do.  Laurie has a plan for Roberta.  No one will steal Larry away from Mother.

But what's a Mother to do?



Find out as Southbridge Old Time Radio presents Agnes Moorehead in an episode of Suspense titled "Don't Call Me Mother."



Baseball, Boynton, Bumbling, and Brooks

No, that's not a law firm or an acrobatic act.  It's a formula for fun as Wacky Wednesday once again rolls around on Southbridge Old Time Radio.

It's time to catch up with the goings-on of Madison High's favorite English teacher, Connie Brooks.  She finally has a date with biology teacher, Philip Boynton!  They're scheduled to go to the opening baseball game between Madison and Clay City High.



Will all go as planned without complications?  Not for Our Miss Brooks

A Little Old Lady, a Purse, and a Diamond

Posted: 06 May 2013 09:42 PM PDT


Richard Diamond, Private Detective, that is.  Yes, once again it's Crime-Tracking Tuesday on Southbridge Old Time Radio.

You would think that having a little old lady ask you to hold her purse would be innocent enough, right?  Well, of course, for most of us that would be the case, but when she asks Richard Diamond to hold her purse, you can bet that it's a bit more complicated.



Here's the lowdown as Southbridge Old Time Radio presents Richard Diamond, Private Detective, in a story called "The Stolen Purse."

If you like sci-fi, Southbridge Old Time Radio's got you covered!

Posted: 02 May 2013 11:28 PM PDT

Yes, Southbridge Old Time Radio's Free-spirit Friday is now Sci-Fi Friday!  

I must admit that science fiction has not always been a favorite genre of mine, but since Southbridge Old Time Radio aims to please its listeners, I went searching for the best science fiction programs that the golden age of radio has to offer.  Now, I'm hooked!



We start today with a great program X Minus One.  The episode is a particularly strong one in my view because it not only has a intriguing story line, but it also serves as an allegory on the treatment of Native Americans.

I believe that this is a great addition to Southbridge Old Time Radio, and I hope you agree as you listen to X Minus One in an episode titled Martian Death March.

Granby's Green Acres

Posted: 30 Apr 2013 09:09 PM PDT


Those who remember the rural television comedies certainly know of "The Beverly Hillbillies" and "Petticoat Junction."  And, without a doubt, you remember one of the zaniest of them all: "Green Acres" starring Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor. Eddie Albert played Park Avenue lawyer Oliver Wendell Douglas who, despite any knowledge of farming, longed to get away from the rat race and own and operate his own farm.  Eva Gabor played his wife Lisa, a reluctant participant in her husband's pipe dream.




They ended up on a farm in Hooterville and the misadventures generated the comedy.

What you may not know, though, is that the idea for the television program was first put into reality in a radio series called "Granby's Green Acres."  The premise of the program is the same except the main character, Granby, is a banker.  His wife is every bit as reluctant as Lisa Douglas. On the radio program, the Granbys have a daughter, Janice.  Just as in the television series they have a hired hand named Eb. 

The excellent cast of Gale Gordon, Bea Benaderet, Shirley Mitchell, and Parley Baer made this an strong, albeit short-run, series.

And that makes it perfect for Wacky Wednesday on Southbridge Old Time Radio!

So enjoy the very first Pilot Episode of "Granby's Green Acres."
