Posted on 10/28/2012 1:55:30 PM PDT by Vision
Friends, it's Sunday night again. Warm up the tubes for another 4 hours of classic radio programs...
Quite a scary line up for Halloween...
In other news, Hurricane Sandy will be stopping by Baltimore on Tuesday to say “Hi”...
Yes, Vision, we’ve been thinking about you and that storm. Although it’s not a very strong one, it’s big, so lots of people will feel it.
We wondered if the Big Broadcast was going to be preempted by storm and preparation coverage.
There is HURRICANE FRENZY here in Eastern PA. Looked all over for D batteries, but they’re sold out.
My Kindle estimated delivery date is:
Thursday, November 1, 2012
I went on Amazon two days ago to read customer reviews for the Paper White. Some long-time Kindle owners don’t like it and are returning it. Something about the lighting, shadows, and blue and pink spots...
Others are satisfied.
The House in Cypress Canyon
The Thing on the Fourble Board
War of the Worlds
are all classics.
My all time favorite is “The Thing on the Fourble Board”. For those of you who don’t know: a fourble board is a platform at a height of 80 feet or more above the floor of an oil derrick.
Thanks for posting.
Thanks to J. David Goldin's RadioGOLDINdex for these synopses.

Ed Walker plays these same scary shows each Halloween. We love them, too, Dick!
This morning I was happy that the track was over Philly, but now it's right at the mason dixon line. Before it was right over the Baltimore beltway which was concerning. I have a lamp coming in by Amazon.com and 40lb of ice in the freezer hoping that will buy time if things get bad.
Also, you could buy D’s on amazon.com on Friday night, but they were sold out by 10am Sat.
Here’s a good storm link...
Vision & Doc, here is a good storm site with a big collection of multiple models, graphics and imagery loops: http://spaghettimodels.com/
It takes a moment to load, especially since there’s lots of traffic hitting it right now.
I pray you and your families will be safe through whatever this thing does. I hope you don’t lose power.
Let me know if you want on the ping list.
Thanks again, how was your week?
