Figure 1.--There is a great interest in old-time radio. Many people still remember the programs they listened to as children. Here we see an American boy with the family Philco, probably in the 1940s.

There is a great interest in old-time radio. Many people still remember the programs they listened to as children. I only know of American programs at this time. I certinly remember the programs I listened to in the late 40s and early 50s. There was the Long Rangr" and "Phiber McGee and Molly". "The Long Ranger" was a real favorite. I had a small radio in my bed room abnd after being put to bed would listen to "The Shadow" and Gangbusters". I doin't recall a lot of child charactrs on these prgrams. Then we got a television and radio became old hat. There are quite a few old time radio sites on the internet. HBC readers interested in the topic may want to persue some of these internet old time radio links.
