Posted on 08/12/2012 1:36:57 PM PDT by Vision
Friends, it's Sunday night again. Warm up the tubes for another 4 hours of classic radio programs...
I see an error in the time stamps on the lineup. The Mercury Theatre is billed in a half-hour time slot, but it's an hour-long show, so the air time of the last two shows are off by a half-hour. I have the correct air times below.
Thanks to J. David Goldin's RadioGOLDINdex for this information:

Hi Gina, I think you have the list until steel formally asks for it back. How are you? Your week was good?
Like this lineup and Mysterious Traveler...never hear of Box 13.
Generally better than most of its genre, IMHO.
Hi, Vision. Yeah, I guess you’re right. Steel’s sources were better than mine, more detailed (I repeat myself), but his would be a welcomed-back re-addition.
Our week was fine. We got a few inches of rain spread out over the week. Still hot, of course, though.
Anything new happening with you up there?
The week was ok. Found out I'll be in Miami next week for a conference. The lawn company started killing off the grass to begin a rejuvenation.
Any cooking this weekend? Grilled london broil yesterday (tonight's leftovers) and made cherry cobbler.
Your lawn company kills your grass to start over? Wow! I’ve not heard of anyone doing that.
I hope you have a good time in Miami, although you’ll probably work mostly—or conference it, which may be boring; I don’t know. At least you’ll probably get to eat something nice! :-)
We don’t have a barbecue lined up, because we were both lame and didn’t get anything at the store. It’s been a lazy-butt weekend, and I’m slow getting the housework and laundry done today. Even your leftovers sound great—plus a cherry cobbler! YUMMMM!!!! We may do some Bubba Burgers on the grill.
If you do Bubba Burgers try putting a pat of butter on them while cooking.
Love the BB's opening theme...sigh...
I love that theme, too! It’s lovely.
We do have some real butter and can try that pat on the Bubba Burgers, which we probably will throw on the grill! Thanks for the tip!
It must be different up there with lawns than down here. Down here, the only time a lawn is replaced is if it is dead or someone just wants new or different grass.
We have installed sod in new and existing yards, and we use a sod cutter to remove any existing grass or weeds, before laying the new sod.
Excellent! Hi, Steel!
Will you resume doing our great synopsis list? That would be super-swell, if you would!
He’s back and posting!
What’d ya think of the Ryan pick steel?
Thanks Gina. I’ll try to help out as I am able, OK?
Now we get to watch the Dems and their media hacks attempt to destroy him like they did Sarah.
Yes, of course. Thanks, Steel! :-)
That’s an intense Johnny Dollar!
Photo I made of Paul Ryan speaking at CEI in June.
He’s so young. He has the potential to reshape America.
