The Night Arthur Godfrey Fired a Singer On Live Radio

I've enjoyed Radio Classics many times on SiriusXM on long drives. The way smoking is implied to be safe for your health in old radio ads is disturbing. X Minus 1 has some great episodes. I don't recall hearing that one but I'll look it up.

If Pope Benny is reading this I would still like the hat.

I'm a big fan of Johnny Dollar and Rogue's Gallery!

The Night Arthur Godfrey Fired a Singer On Live Radio

I am listening to The Green Hornet as I type this. I'm from western NY, male, and in my early 50's. I bought a subscription to XM radio a number of years ago to listen to the NHL and the MLB. I found the Radio Classics station by accident. It is run by a guy name Greg Bell. Over the years I've become fascinated by this window into the past. There are so many little things one can glean about the mindset of that era. It is also comforting in a way that some of the same problems we face now were impacting them as well. Commercials and PSA's are also fantastic. It took me a while to realize that William Bendix doing a safe driving PSA (The life you save may be your own) wasn't a contemporary spot. Listen to a series of Dragnet episodes when they were sponsored by Fatima to hear the "propagandic" gymnastics they went through to convince listeners that Fatima cigarettes were safe (No visible damage to the nose, throat, or sinuses--but what about the LUNGS???). Look for the X Minus 1 episode from 6 February 1957 called Venus is a Man's World for an episode that could have been written by any "incel" of today. I'm generally not a fan of the comedies, though, with notable exceptions for shows like Vic & Sade, the Stan Freberg show, Jack Benny, and Fred Allen. You are not alone in your Johnny Dollar fandom. The man with the action packed expense account (especially the Bob Bailey led episodes) are said to be some of the most popular shows on Radio Classics. I've been reading your stuff going back to the cruel.com days. Too bad Pope Benedict never sent you one of those hats.

Hi there! I really like this book of yours! Although I am experienced in Java, I still learned quite a few from the early chapters (and no, not just the random questions in the workshop). Thanks Rog!

Take Heart, Unmarried Women 35 and Older

I saw the film again in 2016 when it was a Flashback Cinema selection at the local theater. I think you can laugh at the flaws like Mary Hatch's spinster future and still love the film.

Seeing it on a bigger screen at the theater, I had these additional observations:

1. Pre-marriage George has a disturbing way of making out: He presses his cheek on Mary's while choking back sobs. No wonder her mom was upset.

2. If Peter Bailey picks a better second-in-command than drunk brother Billy, George never gets trapped in Bedford Falls.

3. It's supposed to be a hell on earth, but Pottersville looks like a fantastic pub crawl.

4. I have a nagging feeling that Bedford Falls would've voted for Trump while Pottersville would've voted for Hillary.

Take Heart, Unmarried Women 35 and Older

I despise audiences that laugh at the library scene. I saw it last year in London and the audience was in hysterics and it pissed me off because I didn't know why. I had to come on here to understand it and it doesn't change the film one iota. Some people are just stupid and can't detatch themselves and decided to ruin the whole movie. By the way, the first time I saw this movie was in 1999 and the audience certainly didn't laugh then!!
