Old Time Radio

Throughout the 20th century, one of the dominant forms of mass media and entertainment was Radio Shows: Drama, Comedy, Mystery and Horror, as well as news and information, all presented in a purely audio format. Contained in these archives are thousands of hours recorded from these well-funded and talent-filled works.

Some items are entire collections within themselves of many-episode runs of famous shows. Many date from the "Golden Age" of Radio, the early half of the 20th century, while some are remixes or recreations of these works for modern audiences. A percentage are modern(ish) productions utilizing the best of what improved technology and hopes to capture the radio magic could offer.

The introduction of television is considered to be the death knell of this medium, but the works live on.

Big Jim A Play for Radio By James Plunkett   A foray into the forgotten founding narrative of the 1913 Lockout.. Centenaries can be dodgy stratagems. Instead of subverting the status quo, which is always their proclaimed intention, they all too often serve it by softening critique into commemoration and commemoration into mere ceremonial. Perhaps that’s why, at the official unveiling of the Big Jim bronze memorial monument in central Dublin thirty years ago, the then President Patrick...

Epsiode 4 of Australian radio serial City Hospital starring Keith Eden as Dr. Marlow. This episode from 1959 is called Breakdown.

CATHERINE COOKSON, author. These are very interesting, entertaining movies, ones that are usually found on any PBS channel. Catherine Cookson, one of my all time favorite storytellers, creates people and stories you will immediately warm to, and each of the above have transferred wonderfully to the screen. (7 more movies to follow, at a later date.) These stories (although, not the characters) all are historically correct and you will receive a clear picture of life during those periods of...

Vampires are the ultimate killing machines. Classicist and former stand-up comic Natalie Haynes examines why this iconic figure in horror-fiction continues to exert such a powerful hold on our imaginations with four short stories from the BBC audio archives.

Just a Minute is a BBC Radio 4 radio comedy panel game broadcast from 1967 until the present day.  The object of the game is for panellists to talk for sixty seconds on a given subject, "without hesitation, repetition or deviation". The comedy comes from attempts to keep within these rules and the banter among the participants. The show was chaired, with a few exceptions, by Nicholas Parsons for more than fifty years of the programme's run.  Parsons appeared on every show until his...

BBC Radio 4 stand-ups zoom through angst from all angles. The BBC comedy series brings together half-hour sets from established acts such as Ruby Wax and Lucy Porter to newer acts including Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Imran Yusuf, Athena Kugblenu and Joz Norris. They all reward a listen – and, at only 28 minutes a pop, can be digested in the time it takes to (not) travel to work or knock up a socially isolated dinner ... Enjoy!
