Hello All. I ,like some miss some things we used to have that's gone the way of the dinosaur. Drive-in theatres, mom & pop hardware stores, the
corner convenience store that would ( extend credit ) by starting a "Tab" for trusted customers. Gas stations that actually pumped your gas for you.
Most of these items mentioned we just replaced with better stuff. We now watch movies on our phones. We go to the big box "home improvement stores"
where we get a cart and a "guide" to escort us around. Sheetz has taken over the convenience store/gas station. And credit is a little plastic card
that gives us the option "debit or credit".
Radio. Ahh the memories of getting up in the A.M. turning the radio on . Cruising that dial trying to find that new song you heard. Or tuning in your
favorite D.J......Rush was so correct when they said," That magic music that made your morning mood". A great day was allways started when you heard
that "new "song on the way to work.
You had the D.J's you liked & the ones you did'nt. All kinds of contests. Some call in, some that took weeks to complete.I remember a local station
giving a car away when I was about ten yrs old. They hid the key in a beer can some where in the city. It was an attempt to address the litter issue
and have folks clean up their city. I walked miles and found many a can, no key.
I can remember the "call in" contest's. I never managed to win a damn thing, Stupid rotary dial phone. My oldest brother & his first wife won "
ten thousand dollars" on a radion contest that involved the auto license plate number. You sent it in, they picked it a random, announced it on
radio, you had a certain amount of time to call in and claim. He allways said, When my name was said over the radio that they were the winners, in the
days that followed folks came out of the woodwork wanting some "loans"
My favorite radio show was " The CBS Radio Mystery Theatre" It ran for quite a few years when I was young. It was a re-do of radio days go by. It
was great. It came on everynight I think at 10:00pm. It was a hour long show, a mystery tale or murder who dun it. From about 12 to 14 years old I
would tune in every night. It was a wonderful way to use the minds eye. They set the scene, you have the final say on the images, for me it was a
great way to drift away to some where else each night.
I now listen to those very same shows . You can too, all 1,399 of them. There free and there online. All of them. So if you want to listen to
show's and imagine the sets, the sounds, all that went into these productions. It is for me great entertainment. It's all free. A lost form on
entertainment or is it. I will try to put a link on here, i suck at these attachment things. Hope some of you tune in and enjoy these radio shows.
