That station is one of my favorites!

Along those lines, here are two other stations I often listen to-

http://audionoir.com/

If you get the TuneIn Radio app, you can can listen and record any station for hours at a time!

I can't recommend it highly enough!

The 2 best things about technology is old time radio and Free Republic!

Hi Mary, thanks much for those. I already tuned my kitchen wifi radio into antioch and will definitely check these out too. It's fun how they correspond the current date to the date of previous shows.

Not yet, Doc. Right now, the air is oppressive, but not too hot. It’s because we have Pacific weather moving over us, under a tornado watch and some warnings.

We’re just in front of the red/yellow line, right on the beach.

Night all, have a great week. A Mercury Theatre from ‘38 should be good.

I enjoyed it a lot, but then I’m a Clint fan. Good entertaining movie I’d say with a baseball motif. I would see it again.

We love him, too. Grand Torino was classic Clint (except for his ending in it).
