“I felt kinda silly, the way you do when you find a hole in your sock at the shoe store.”
— from JOHNNY MADERO, PIER 23
Hilarious. JOHNNY MADERO is a poor man’s PAT NOVAK. A rival network’s attempt to replicate the popularity of the PAT NOVAK radio show. But MADERO’s saving grace was it was also performed by the great Jack Webb, it’s not as good as PAT NOVAK, but boy does it have its moments.
Only two episodes are known to exist, and both are available via Archive.Org.
Okay a while back I did a post that was ominously titled… ‘THE END OF PODCASTS?’, and at the end of that post I promised that I would follow up with the other side of the coin, reasons to be hopeful and overjoyed about podcasts.
In other words, a post praising the people still out there kicking out constantly great podcasts.
Without further ado they are:
COMIC GEEK SPEAK
BLUE PLATE SPECIAL
VINYL, LIVE AND LOCAL
DRAMA / OTR
BOXCARS711- Bob C’s site is a staggering, and authoritative labor of love to one of my favorite mediums, radio drama. Specifically he covers OTR, Old Time Radio.
Those are some that I recommend. I’ll add more next time, including links. But Easy way to find them yourself is go to http://www.scroogle.org and use that search engine. (just say no to google :))
