to remember?

 

We're getting multiple snow storms this week(10", no lake effect) as I was outside burrowing my way through the third neighbor's sidewalk, I began to think about old Sargent Preston radio shows. How many of you are old enough to remember Sargent Preston of the Yukon and his faithful dog, King? On King! On you Huskys!

I read some of the books although I heard the radio program likely on the CBC radio but was more entertained  by Dudley Dooright always saving Penelope Pureheart from peril

That would be around the same time period as the Fibber McGee and Molly shows I would imagine.  When the first local FM station started broadcasting back in 1976 they had a variety of programming as one of their mandates was they could not broadcast the same material as the AM station that they owned.  They used to play various old radio shows during the week days from that time period such as The Shadow and the Lone Ranger.  I remember they played a recording of Gunsmoke that I believe was from 1955 (the first year it was a radio show and the next year it was a TV program I believe) that had William Conrad reading the part of Mat Dillon - there was lots of mistakes with cast members chuckling as the radio play progressed.  At the end they announced that was a recording of a rehearsal and the next day they played the same recording that was actually aired - would not know it was the same play as everything was done correctly right on cue.

I am old enough to remember them but sometimes my memory just needs to be jogged a bit. Oh for the good old days when their was something good to watch or listen to . These days it seams to be all crap. Good time to take a nap.

I remember watching him on TV, along with Wyatt Earp, Have Gun Will Travel, Lone Ranger, The Deputy, Sky King, Fury, My friend Flicka, Bronco, Cheyenne, Maverick, Sugar Foot, Wagon Train, and Raw Hyde. In 1958 my neighbor guest starred on Wagon Train and his character was killed. The next morning there was half a dozen of us 7 year olds at the bus stop crying. We didn't understand that he was just acting. We didn't believe our parents when they said he was alive until he came home a month later. Good Luck, Rick

Sounds like we are all well established residents of geezerville. Check with Red Green if you want an explanation. It does mean saving 10% on groceries on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at my local store.
