Is anyone else here putting together logs for different radio programs? I'm putting a log together (complete with summary of each episode) of Dragnet. I think it would be interesting if a bunch of us were to each pick a show and do an episode by episode log of it.

That would be great. I will try to do one. Might be some time before I can get started. Starting to paint house this weekend.

No worries there talosiv. Some programs will take a while to type up I'm sure. I'm still working on Dragnet. Right now I'm up to April of 1953, so I still have a bit to get through. And some no doubt will take even longer. I can't remember how many episodes there are of "Johnny Dollar" for example, but I know there are a lot of them. Just please post the Title of the show you are working on so we don't both end up typing up the same show. Smile

Did anything get decided regarding this suggestion?
I've just started working my way through Broadway is my Beat and wouldn't mind writing up a brief resume of each episode.

Unless I am missing something... there are logs all over the internet for almost every show.

But just for starters, try this: http://www.old-time.com/humongousdb/

And try here too[url] http://www.otrsite.com/radiolog/[/url] and try the Digital Deli too (they are still working on things, it appears) http://www.digitaldeliftp.com/DigitalDeliToo/dd2-jukebox-0.html

Those just seem to be episode titles / date of original broadcast.
Very useful, but I was thinking more along the lines of Crich70's suggestion that we write a brief summary of each episode.

For some series you can see immediately from the title if you've already heard the episode, but for things like Dragnet or Broadway is my Beat it's not so obvious.

As stated, there are logs everywhere - it all depends on the show. Perhaps what you are looking for is here: http://radiogoldindex.com/goldin.htm

Although for the most part, not every episode is contained in there. However, I have found it most useful.

If you could be more specific about which show(s) you are looking for, perhaps I can be of more help.

No problem; just be aware that not every episode of every show is in there and you may have to find "fills" from other resources.

Another resource is here: http://www.otrplotspot.com/Plot_Archives.htm (mostly horror)

and here is a detailed look at The Adventures of Superman: http://www.supermanhomepage.com/radio/radio.php?topic=radio-reviews/radio-reviews

And this place for Escape and Suspense, specifically: http://www.escape-suspense.com/

Jimbo, I beginning to think you are a librarian. Reference library maybe. If not, maybe you should consider it. Love your work AND YOUR BLOG.

hehe I'm not a librarian and thanks. I just like to research things (basebal, otr, WWII) and know how do so.

The internet provides us the world virtually at our fingertips. In 5 more years, so many more resources will be available to search on the net... it will only get better in that regard (unless we have to pay for it!)

In addition to baseball, I also like books, movies and audio clips on WWII. This site has lots of clips on WWII. Enjoy the Churchill and other political characters of the time doing their speeches. Most enjoyable are the news people reporting live from actual battles.
