Welcome to the second volume of the Radio Spirits Listener Series.
These programs run the gamut! From game shows to real news, from soap operas to murder mysteries, from broad comedy to international intrigue, from Judy Canova to Harry Houdini, Volume Two of this diverse series brings you a wide-ranging sample of radio at its most unique - including some rare gems not heard since their original broadcast.
Includes a Program Guide by Karl Schadow.
With a full week's schedule to fill, radio networks, sponsors, and advertising agencies presented a wide variety of fascinating content of all types during the Golden Age of Radio. A great number of these programs have been lost to time and, in many cases, only limited numbers of episodes - or broadcast fragments - survive.
The Radio Spirits library includes tens of thousands of programs, many of which haven't lent themselves to presentation in their own collections because of limited availability of surviving episodes, or the esoteric nature of the content. There was a lot more to radio than just the big names and the big shows. The Radio Spirits Listener Series will introduce you to some of these lesser-known programs.
