“Nighty-Nite Sweet Dreams”
Every “DAY’, just has to come to an ending and, so do I, and in what other way, back in the 1940’s and 1950’s, than to turn on that radio, for just one more of my favorite radio programs.
There was, “The Shadow” one program, that when it was on, you would almost feel like you were right there, helping to do your part, in sending information “mentally” to the “actors on the radio” telling them, where to go and what to do, just as if you were directing this “show” with your very own magic wand.
There is the “radio” and there I am, in my very own , little special corner “nook” to do my studies , homework and thinking about my being, all ready to just dash into bed, just as soon as I have solved the latest situation developing on one of my favorite programs all depending on how really tired I am, and what I have to be ready for in the morning?
If there is no “SCHOOL” or no “WORK” that I have to be ready for, no call for “brains” with which a bright eye or two would be needed, I could, just be raring to go with some super energy, as there would be the possibility that, “tonight” I just might, force myself to listen to another of my favorite stories.
“Do you remember “Gang Busters” with lots of bells and whistles with “crooks” coming and going, everything going fast and furious?”
“How about this one, an “Inner Sanctum Mystery” starting out with some “squeaky” music like a door that “squeaks” so bad, needs some oil and grease and in a hurry?” The opening up of this program, well, it just puts you in the mood to be scared, that is if, they are doing a real good job, “You just could be a little on the “scared” side?”
So, just in case, I put you into the listening mood of your radio, ‘tonight’ I do not know, if you can still find any of these old radio stories any where, but, if you are really wanting to see if you could feel like I did as a “KID” way back then, try checking out on your computer and see, if they still have some ‘golden classics’ from those old timer years, that I can still remember?
“Here’s to you and to you other “youngsters” that, do not remember those good old days, that we enjoyed, a wonderful world without a “television” and that the “RADIO” was the best thing, next to sliced bread!”
