KUSF In Exile 06.10.12 8-10 AM Whiskey Before Breakfast DJ Richard White

A two hour set of Folk, Acoustic, Flat Picking, Traditional, Bluegrass, Contemporary, and everything else related with waking up in a relaxed way to get the Sunday started off. Originally a radio show that was on WKSU, with Kerry Blech in the 70's, which led to the Folk Alley that we hear now.

For this particular WBB, I decided to go to a passion that has been
recently kindled. That passion is vintage radio. From time to time,
there will be classic radio episodes as well as vintage radio
commercials and bloopers to warm the cockles of your heart as well as
the usual folk/blues/psyche. Here are the four radio plays I presented
this morning:

David Harding, Counterspy "Germans In Mexico" (NBC's Blue Network;
June 22, 1942)

Jeff Regan, Investigator "Lady With The Golden Hair" (CBS; July 31, 1948)
(This episode not only featured Jack Webb, who played the title role,
it also featured Barton Yarbrough, who co-starred with Webb on Dragnet
from 1949 until his death late in 1951. This series only lasted
throughout the second half of 1948 and was briefly resurrected in 1950
with a different cast.)

Dragnet "Homicide: Nickel-Plated Gun" (NBC; June 10, 1949)
(This is the second production and is the earliest surviving episode
in this series. The famous nine-note intro which kicked off both the
radio and TV episodes appears on the next production, "Werewolf".
Along with Webb and Yarbrough, Raymond Burr co-stars as their boss.
Also of note is the more detailed use of sound effects. Most radio
shows required one or two sound technicians. Dragnet used no fewer
than five.)

The Black Museum "A Silencer" (Mutual Network; ?, ?,1952)
(Featuring Orson Welles)
