Dan asks Tom about the history of OTR collecting.Some shows we want to cover in upcoming episodes, and why.Episode 001 - Fibber McGee and MollyDan and Tom discuss the long-running radio sitcom Fibber McGee & Molly. Married couple Jim and Marion Jordan play Fibber & Molly, a married couple who have a weekly radio program that just sort of magically happens around them. We talk about the pre-history of the show (the 1931 – 1933 show Smackout!), the vagabond years (when Fibber and Molly lived in their car), and the long-running retconned formula, when they settled down to happy domesticityHidden Gems in the Internet Archive:- Dan’s Pick this Week: A corny little melodrama about a short-line railroad: “The Green Valley Line.”Episode 002 - Yours Truly Johnny DollarDan and Tom explore the man with the action packed expense account, Yours Truly Johnny Dollar. From  cookie cutter detective show to the golden era of Bob Bailey & Jack Johnstone to the end of old time radio itself we take the journey through the highs and lows of this show. We also look at the lasting legacy of the show, from parody to comics to a recent mention on the Samantha Bee show. Hidden Gems in the Internet Archive:- Tom's pick this weeks is the short run "Living In An Atomic Age. "Episode 003 - GunsmokeThis episode, we talk about the great 1950s radio western, Gunsmoke (and, as much as possible, we avoid talking about the mediocre TV version). Gunsmoke was the first radio western made strictly for adults, and its creators originally intended Marshall Matt Dillon to be as a sort of Philip Marlow of the Old West, but the show quickly grew into a complex, often dark drama that went to some really harrowing places. We veer off topic into the original Maltese Falcon prop (which sat on Gunsmoke star William Conrad's mantle for years) and the cast's connections to Rocky & Bullwinkle, Star Trek, and the Keebler cookies, but we eventually circle back to talk about the curse of being Matt Dillon, why Fort Laramie is no Gunsmoke, and we discuss the pioneering disabled woman who wrote 80 of the last 200 episodes of the show, Marion Clark. And Dan still doesn't have a good tag line.Subscribe to the Podcasthttp://www.ourshowofshows.com/ourshowofshows.rssTom's "Tales of the West" Podcasthttp://tomwsmf.com/podcasts/west.rssGunsmoke single episodes on Archive.orghttps://archive.org/details/OTRR_Gunsmoke_SinglesFort Laramie single episodes at Archive.orghttps://archive.org/details/OTRR_Fort_Laramie_SinglesEpisode 004 - A British Sampler (The Goon Shows, Kenneth Williams, and Just A Minute)Many folks who are getting into or who are well into listening to old time radio are missing out on a whole other country's worth of material .
